God enables us to see

To do the work of God is to believe in Jesus, the One God sent to us to save us from sin (harm) and evil. That said, don't be insensitive to His communication toward you; He wants and can enable you to live like He does, and wants to keep you. Believe and be saved! Listen to and learn from what God says so you can tell the difference between right and wrong. This will help a lot, make it natural for you to home in as God draws you in to believing in Jesus, who came from Him, and be saved. Then God will live in you and He will enable you to succeed at applying His principles, overcoming all your harmful desires. (principles from JH6:25-6:65)
Jesus is our Life! Through His death on the cross and resurrection three days later we receive forgiveness of our sins and eternal life, when we repent and believe in Him as the Christ, the Son of God. Then God lives in us! Go tell people! Don't be afraid! God will enable you and bless you with peace, so have no fear. Don't be insensitive to His words! (principles from LK24:13-53)
As you begin really hearing (understanding) God's message, He will enable you to hear more and more. If you're insensitive, you won't sense God, and His presence and way will not enable you. Giving helps you get out of yourself and become sensitive to others. Believing produces growing which produces believing, and on and on. This is the path which is opposite to separation from God and doom. When you get to keep what you want, you give up the rest; if you don't want the Lord you will be separated from Him and judged unfavorably for not listening to the Teacher. (principles from MT13:1-13:52)
God will enable you to believe in spite of the persecution you will endure on your journey. Satan tries to disrupt your walk with God, and some unbelievers bring persecution and death to believers. In the end we will all be rewarded by Christ according to our works, and nothing can change his decision. (principles from MT16:13-28) Applying the principles in view of the world will cost you your old lifestyle and possibly your body, but you have to do it. (principles from MK8:31-38) Better to deny yourself daily, unashamedly tell the gospel, and be persecuted than to gain the whole world and be eternally condemned. (principles from LK9:18-27)
God the Father and Jesus his Son continue working. They are together and show the principles by what they do. Jesus gives life to whom he is pleased to give it, and He has been given authority to judge whether we believe His word and do good (whether we really love the Lord more than our selfish ways), because as a man he knows us. Those who do these things have eternal life, those who don't will be condemned. Jesus seeks to please God the Father, and judges according to His principles. Jesus' work shows He came from the Father. Believing in Jesus brings God and his word into you, so don't refuse him and side with others. Refusing to put effort into following his teachings keeps people from believing. Believe and live! (principles from JH5:16-5:47)
Jesus has authority over all of us; we need the Father and Son to bring us into eternal life, which is knowing Him. We will glorify Him by doing all the work He has given us to do. Jesus and the Father are one; the Father will protect us to keep His people one with each other. The Father and the Son will be in us, and us in them. Jesus is giving us all His joy. Even though the world hates us, God will protect us from the evil one. And through Jesus, we can overcome our own harmful desires. The world will know Jesus came from God and that God loves us when they see we believers are in God, and when they see the way believers love each other and the complete unity God brings about in us, which is a glorious thing. And these are things we pray about; that God will protect us from evil, make us one with each other, and set us apart by the truth of His word. Our believing in Jesus will bring us into heaven. God loves us and lives with us. (principles from JH17:1-17:26)
