This is a subject that the WT has covered many times. It uses the example of human feelings as a basis to understand God.
For instance: Under the heading "Does God Notice You?", it goes into great detail of about what a woman feels when she bonds with her child. Then it says that close bond was designed by our creator. At the end of 3 paragraphs, it says CONSIDER: If God created such a complex system to ensure that a human mother will tenderly observe her baby and respond to the infant's needs, does it not seem logical that God also takes a personal interest in us, "the children of God"? -Acts 17:29
The thing is, a human mother wouldn't sit around and just watch a child become sick without doing something. Parents have traveled the world and incurred great debt in an attempt to cure their children. God however, just wants you to know he "notices" you.
At the end of the two page article, it gives an experience of "hannah" from England. In short, she felt God didn't love her, her prayers weren't answered, felt it was from her lack of faith, felt like she was being punished or ignored because she wasn't important enough and that God didn't care.
What proved to her that he did? Mostly it was just reading about how great he was (I would assume articles like this) she said her prayers were answered (what did he answer? never said) "his willing desire to look after us individually"
So in reality, you have to convince yourself because no miracles or direct communication occurs.
So there are 4 articles like this. If I was a witness now, I'd be nodding my head in agreement although I myself, would not be feeling like I was helped by God. I would say "Hannah" is saying what many witnesses feel. Unloved and unnoticed by God. Praying without results and feeling like something is wrong with you.
One of the experiences (if it is true) under the heading "Does God Understand You?" is a mother who not only had breast cancer - undergoing surgery, chemo and radiotherapy - she also had a daughter with hydrocephalus. And she was a widow. No miracles or cure, she just recited "the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers. Made her feel like she had a close personal bond with God.
So this is the sugar pill effect. Which people do need to have sometimes when you have nothing else. But it just another example of people doing it for themselves. God doesn't impart health or direct help.
Under the heading "God Will Soon End All Suffering" When will God Act? Very soon! Jesus revealed that a particular generation would witness a unique combinations of conditions that would mark the last days of a "system of things" The fulfillment of Jesus' prophecy in our day indicates that God's intervention in human affairs is imminent.
Notice it doesn't say "Overlapping generation" and guess what? It's Very Soon!
I should put the copy back on the porch so my time counting JW doesn't get a placement point. It's so hard to even browse this stuff.
