God will also tell you if He is displeased with you. For example, God's Holy Spirit will show you / convict you of even the slightest of pride that may have crept into your heart (because a sermon had gone really well, you had received a lot of compliments, and have taken the glory for yourself). The conviction is often very gentle and private at first. Respond to this, do not delay! Get rid of any traces of pride. If this is difficult, pray about it and ask God to purify your heart. If you do not respond to His gentle and private conviction, the conviction will get bigger and bigger, and God may have to bring you down in public.
