God is unseen and the Holy Spirit is unseen. The Holy Spirit has been given to us, to guide us.
But are we listening.
Proverbs 1: 7 The fear of Yahweh is the beginning of knowledge; but the foolish despise wisdom and instruction. WEB
Our hearts and minds are the key sources of understanding God. We can neither see nor hear our hearts and minds. We all have a way to sense and understand what lies deep within our minds, hearts, and the Holy Spirit of God. This ability, like all abilities, is to be conditioned, trained, practiced, and improved. Our minds and hearts are to love God in all situations and at all times. When these spiritual resources are situated correctly, seeking God, then we may sense God's direction.
The key to understanding God is to improve our spiritual senses. As we obey and act upon the spirit's guidance we can learn more about God's grace and goodness. This has been the instruction since the beginning. We must rely completely upon God, to do God's will. There is an inward authority within us that needs to be governed by God's structure or it will govern us according to its own habits, ideas, and desires. God wants us to give ourselves over to God's ways, paths, righteousness, goodness, grace, and statutes.
We are each unique in our condition, situation, experience, knowledge, ability, and resources. Our interests and motivations vary as well as our willingness to serve God. Therefore, we each will serve God differently. If we rely upon other people telling us what to do for every specific situation we will fall far short of God's desire for us. What is right for one soul, may not be right for another. Since we each are unique we must learn to understand God better and how to better discern for ourselves what God desires each of us to do. Other people can help us grow in our ability to learn more about God and how to discern, but our real learning will be through trial and error of engagement in spiritual conditioning practices.
We must get to know the thoughts which prompt our behavior, pain, suffering, fear, anger, self-deception, anxiety, and other forms of brokenness. We are to begin a journey and an adventure of seeking interactivity that exists below the surface of ourselves and others. To know peace we must learn to slow down. God is peace. So either we are willing to slow down and find God or we are not. Either we do it, or we don't.
God is forgiving. Either we learn to sincerely forgive ourselves and others from our hearts or we don't. If we say we forgive, but do not feel/sense forgiveness, are we being sincere and truthful? Are we doing it for spiritual goodness or to please someone? True forgiveness increases peace, humility, love, and spiritual goodness.
This journey will require a continued regular frequent practice, evaluation, and discussion. Either we do it, or we don't. We have a choice to make every day all day long and that choice affects our condition spiritually, emotionally, relationally, and physically. God's way is right, healthy, loving, and freedom.
