There are two main areas where we can expect to see practical and obvious results of learning to know God: Divine Guidance and Ministry Involvement. The more you depend on Him to meet your needs, the more He will begin to interfere in your personal life for your need for guidance, and provoke your spiritual nature as a giver (ministry).

Divine Guidance is the sovereign interference of God in the personal life and experience of all creation past, present and future. As a believer, your spirit is already in full participation with the full will of God, and therefore has the confidence and assurance of the lovingkindness of God toward you so that it DOES NOT NEED GUIDANCE! It is our soul and body that react to unknown circumstances, especially their lack of control over the unknown. Through dependence, our goal is that our will be free from the influence of the world, the flesh and the devil so it can be submitted to the will of God. Over time our purpose and desire line up with the purpose and desire of God, and we more and more become willing participants in expressing His nature, as Giver, to the world around us, as He chooses. The more we desire divine guidance, and are drawn to engage in the will of God, the more our own desires and will are submitted and engulfed by our new spirit nature. This is not a “choosing” to do the will of God, which is a way of strengthening the will (idolatry of the will), but an acknowledged subordinating, merging or overshadowing of our will by our spirit. Our will is not changed, but overwhelmed as it becomes part of a general conduit for the love, acceptance and value God wants to express. The process of getting healed (including being freed from flesh), cultivating quietness and waiting is what gradually accomplishes this reorientation in our lives as we daily learn to walk, live, move and ultimately have our very being according to the spirit.
