Discover Powerful bible verses about intimacy with God that will usher into a new reality. One of the most difficult things for most Christians is to set aside daily time with God.

Psalms 139: 1-24: 139 To the Principal Musician: Psalm of David. O Jehovah, you have examined me and known me. 2 You have known my sitting down and my rising up, You have understood my thoughts from afar. 3 You have surrounded my path and my lying down, And you are imposed on all my ways. 4 For the word is not yet on my tongue, And, behold, O Lord, you know it all. 5 Behind and before you trimmed me, And laid your hand upon me. 6 Science is more wonderful than my ability, High it is, I cannot understand it. 7 Where will I go from your spirit? And where will I flee from your presence? 8 If I ascend into heaven, you are there: if I make my platform in the abyss, behold, there you are. 9 If I take the wings of the dawn, And dwell at the end of the sea, 10 Even there your hand will guide me, And Your right hand will hold me. 11 If I said, “The darkness will surely cover me, Even the night will shine on me. 12 Even darkness does not cover you, And night shines like the day: Darkness is the same to you as light. 13 Because you owned my kidneys, You covered me in my mother’s womb. 14 I will praise you, because formidable, wonderful are your works: I am amazed, And my soul knows it very much. 15 My body was not concealed from you, Well that I was formed in secret, And arranged in the lowest part of the earth. 16 My embryo saw your eyes, and in your book were written all those things that were later formed, without missing one of them. 17 So how precious are Your thoughts to me, O God! How multiplied are your accounts! 18 If I count them, multiply more than the sand: I wake up, and I’m still with you. 19 Truly, O God, you will kill the wicked, Depart from me therefore, you bloody men. 20 For they speak blasphemies against you: Your enemies take your name in vain 21 Do I not hate those who hate you, O Jehovah, and move me against your enemies? 22 Hate them with perfect hatred, Having them for enemies. 23 Examine me, O God, and know my heart: Test me and acknowledge my thoughts: 24 And see if there is a way of evil in me, And guide me in an eternal way.

Psalms 51: 1-19: 51 To the chief Musician: Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came to him after he entered Bath-Sheba. Have mercy on me, O God, according to your mercy: according to the multitude of your pieties erase my rebellions. 2 Wash me more and more from my wickedness, And cleanse me from my sin. 3 For I acknowledge my transgressions, And my sin is always before me. 4 I have sinned only you, and I have done evil before your eyes: because you are recognized as righteous in your word, and considered pure in your judgment. 5 Behold, I was formed in iniquity, and my mother conceived me in sin. 6 Behold, you love the truth in your heart: And in the secret, you have made me understand wisdom. 7 Purify me with hyssop, and it shall be clean: Wash me, and I shall be made more white than snow. 8 Make me hear joy and gladness, And the bones that you have broken will be recreated. 9 Hide your face from my sins, And blot out all my iniquities. 10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a right spirit within me. 11 Do not cast me out from before you, and do not take your holy spirit from me. 12 Give me back the joy of your health, And the free spirit sustain me. 13 I will teach the sinners your ways, and the sinners will turn to you. 14 Deliver me from murder, O God, God of my salvation: Your justice will sing my tongue. 15 Lord, open my lips, And my mouth will publish your praise. 16 Because you don’t want your sacrifice, which I would give, you don’t want a burnt offering. 17 The sacrifices of God are the broken spirit: You will not despise the contrite and humiliated heart, O God. 18 Do Zion well with your benevolence: Build the walls of Jerusalem. 19 Then you will be pleased with the sacrifices of justice,
Isaiah 1: 1-31: 1 VISION of Isaiah son of Amoz, who saw over Judah and Jerusalem, in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, kings of Judah. 2 Hear ye, heavens, and hear, earth, for Jehovah speaks: I have raised children, and I have magnified them, and they have rebelled against me. 3 The ox knows its owner, and the donkey its lord’s manger: Israel does not know, my people have no understanding. 4 O sinful people, people loaded with evil, generation of evildoers, deprived children! They left Jehovah, provoked the Holy One of Israel to anger, turned back. 5 Why should you still be punished? you will still rebel. The whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. 6 From the sole of the foot to the head there is nothing unharmed, but a wound, swelling, and a rotten sore: they are not healed, bandaged or softened with oil. 7 Your land is destroyed, your cities set on fire, your land before you eaten by strangers, and devastated as a desolation by strangers. 8 And the daughter of Zion remains as a hut in a vineyard, and as a hut in melon, as a desolate city. 9 If Jehovah of armies had not left us with very short residues, as we were Sodom, and similar to Gomorrah. 10 Princes of Sodom, hear the word of Jehovah, listen to the law of our God, people of Gomorrah. 11 Why me, says Jehovah, the multitude of your sacrifices? I am fed up with burnt offerings of rams and fat of fat animals: I do not want the blood of oxen, sheep, or goats. 12 Who demanded this from your hands, when you came to present yourselves before me, to tread my courts? 13 Bring me no more vain present: perfume is an abomination to me: New moon and Saturday, calling meetings, I cannot suffer them: your solemnities are iniquity. 14 Your new moons and your solemnities my soul hates: they are burdensome to me, I am tired of carrying them. 15 When you spread your hands, I will hide my eyes from you: likewise when you multiply the prayer, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood. 16 Wash, cleanse yourselves, remove the iniquity of your deeds from before my eyes, stop doing evil: 17 Learn to do good: seek judgment, restore the wronged, hear the orphan in right, protect the widow. 18 Come quickly, Jehovah will say, and let us be aware: if your sins are like scarlet, they will be made white like snow; if they are red like crimson, they will become like white wool. 19 If you will and hear, eat the good of the earth: 20 If you will not and are rebellious, you will be consumed by the sword: for the mouth of the Lord has said it. 21 How have you become a harlot, O faithful city? Full was of judgment, in her lived equity, but now, murderers. 22 Your silver has become slag, your mixed wine is with water. 23 Your princes, crooks, and companions of thieves: they all love the gifts, and they go after the rewards: they do not hear the orphan in judgment, nor does the cause of the widow reach them. 24 Therefore saith the Lord GOD of hosts, the Mighty One of Israel: Ea, I will take satisfaction from my enemies, I will avenge myself against my adversaries: 25 And I will turn my hand upon you, and cleanse your slag to the purest, and remove all your tin: 26 And I will restore your judges as at the beginning, and your advisers as of the first: then they will call you a City of justice, a faithful City. 27 Zion with judgment will be rescued, and her converts with justice. 28 But the rebels and sinners will be broken together, and those who leave Jehovah will be consumed. 29 Then the elms that you loved will shame you, and the forests you have chosen will affront you. 30 For you will be like the elm that drops its leaf, and like a garden that lacks water. 31 And the strong one will be like bast, and what it did like lightning, and both will be kindled together, and there will be no one to quench.
