Our Lord, from whom all spirits spring, has given us the  gift of autonomy in which we can freely live and move and have our being. In this state, we are able to regulate or govern our attitudes and responses to the world around us. Among those attitudes and responses we operate on our own are our perceptions and reactions to God.

In our liberty, our choice to follow God is made by us and  as far as God is able to persuade us to follow Him, He does. He makes His case to us through our own experiences with nature and what other people say about Him and what we are able to derive from scriptural or cultural sources.

He can whisper in our hearts how we need Him and how desperately lost we are without Him.

Along the way, we may refuse to heed the pleading of God and eventually we won't even feel the pulls  on our hearts any more. 

On the other hand,  if we become aware of our own sinful ways and feel convicted of them,  we can reach a point in our lives where we are convinced that the salvation offered by God is the right way for us. If we choose this path, we are set on a course of getting to personally know our God and beloved Father  who made all things including us.

When we feel our hearts being pulled to follow God, we should respond positively  to that call.
