Our life is to be all about listening to God and doing what he wants us to do. That is the goal that Jesus has laid out before us. What does God want is the central question at any given point.
We also have assurance that God hears us, knows what we need and is in an amazing mood. God wants the best for us always. God is not a mean and stingy father. God is love.
The goal of my spiritual life is such close identification with Jesus Christ that I will always hear God and know that God always hears me.
