Agreed...I use what Jonathan mentioned as often as I can--it's a good resource.
There are probably some ways you could fake this kind of search a little bit in Accordance. To Jonathan's point, Google and Accordance searches work differently. But in Accordance, using a Greek New Testament (with parallel English) as an example, this search:
Θεος <WITHIN 2 Words> [VERB] <WITHIN 2 Words> κοσμος
Gives you every time "God" and any verb and "world" occur in close proximity to each other. (You can change the number from 2 to whatever.) It yields these results:

Again--not totally what you're looking for, but this kind of a search can at least give some ideas...Better yet, you could set up a construct search like this.

No Greek required for a "Simple" construct (and you can also set up a Greek one, like the above search string). I don't think you can use the "VERB" tag in an English-only search. However, the asterisk turns up mostly verbs anyway, coming as it does between "God" and "world."
