9 Bible Verses to Usher You Into the Presence of God

Sometimes the most powerful motivator for me to slow the busyness of life to BE with God is a simple invitation, spoken straight from His Word.

To such an invitation, my spirit can’t help but say, “yes!”

As I talked with one of my nearest, dearest friends this week, she mentioned a list she’d curated of Bible verses about spending time with God. My interest was piqued, and I asked her to send me a copy.

I spent the next morning looking through and carefully reading all of her verses. I also thought and prayed about which ones I would add to the list. Together we came up with a great list I think.

Just looking at this sweet list filled me with such peace and joy in this beautiful relationship to which God has called me. To which he has called you.

It’s breathtakingly intimate and personal.

So now, I’m giving you this gift of invitation into God’s presence. (Let’s be honest, this gift is straight from God and so holy.)

Please take some time to carefully pray through these verses. If one stands out to you, speaks to you, motivates you, and inspires you, please take the time to copy it down and put it where you’ll see it and be reminded.

Then follow through… spend time with your Abba.

    Thank you for these verses about coming into the presence of God. Just what I was looking for as I’ll be leading a group prayer time at our writers retreat in a couple of weeks time. I particularly like Psalm 84. Beautiful.
