To observe a thing - you must hear it, see it, feel it and taste it.
That’s the way the word of God should be to all of us. But first you must observe God’s word.
You must hear and see the word of God. You must read God’s word daily. Never accept the word of God as accurate unless you have read it for yourself. The Thessalonians proved this valuable point.
These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
You must feel and taste the word of God. In order to believe and feel what you have read, you first must taste it or try it out. A matter of fact God encourages us to try Him and prove all things.
1 John 4:1
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
1 Thessalonians 5:21
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
If we are truly trying to please God, we must be tried and tested by God. We should, like the psalmist, invite God into our lives.
Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.
1 Peter 4:12
Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
