"And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God require of you, but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, to keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which I command you this day for your good?" - Deuteronomy 10:12-13
Every living and professed believer of Christ is expected to live, behave and conduct themselves in such a way that will bring honor to God, which can only be done as you continue to dwell in His Son Jesus and obey His word.
You cannot know by any other way then the word of God how you are expected to walk in the presence of a Living and Holy God. In His word, "He has showed you, O man, what is good, and what does the LORD require of you, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?" (Micah 6:8).
We are required to walk in all the ways of God, to do what is right in His sight, and to be merciful to those who are in distress and destitute of the necessary things of life to survive. This is for your good, and this is for His glory. His way is the better way that will help you become a better man or a better woman, which is why it was one of the most important reasons you came to the Father, right? Because you realize you can't live without His wisdom and guidance and ordering your footsteps on the paths that leads to prosperity, success, victory and eternal life.
I encourage you to be not only a hearer of His word, also a doer of His word letting go of anything that is in contrary to His word. That is, anything hindering you from honoring God with your life, even if you don't think it’s a hinder.
