To obtain God is the ultimate in the personal journey. To obtain eternal life and endless expansion of potential we must learn to live by the laws of faith. Not only that but also to constantly look through the "lens" of faith and not judge events and the world around us with our physical eyes.
Your eyes will deceive but the lessons learned of an individuals private faith cannot. That is where God is. When one leads his life according to the "lens" of faith he/she will recognize that God has been showing himself to them all along and leading them. God is recognized through this "lens."
I am going to answer your question slightly differently -
(a) When the tax man collects your taxes - does he come and knock on your door for his share, is it taken through your wages or you pay it directly - no tax man ever knocks your door unless you break the law.
(b) When the government provides you with infrastructure, security, amenities - no official from the government knocks your door and says - there you go Mr Joe Bloggs we are from the government heres what we're gonna give you, instead it is just there and you take advantage of it.

All the best.
God shows Himself all the time. You're just not looking.
The kingdom of Heaven is within you. Re-read Genesis 1:26.
The real you is a child of God. Let that part wake up and you'll see what I mean.
Listen to that quiet, still voice within (the true self) -- not the loud, rowdy one (ego).

We are taught from childhood to behave well and do good things without thought of compensation, but all god does is promise not to burn the hell out of us if we do absolutely everything he says, and do it the way he says it, because it's not enough to just do it, you have to bleed in your heart for...

That's the typical Sam Harris argument. How does suffering negate God's existence? Maybe He's just watching. It doesn't mean He doesn't exist and for anyone to bring up suffering as proof of no God is indication of a logical fallacy.

SOME PEOPLE ARE ATHEISTS AND OTHERS AGNOSTICS AND SOME JUST DON'T THINK THAT GOD WOULD HAVE TIME TO CARE ABOUT HUMANS.

eg the the people that didn't get healed when you prayed for them? Not enough faith? Hidden sin? God doesn't care? Answered prayers are really just luck anyway?
