How do I know the Spirit lives in me?

Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.  Romans 8:5
Examine your thoughts—do they primarily focus on death or life, the world or God’s kingdom, hell or heaven.  Are you under God’s authority or do you fight that authority?  Are you convicted by the Spirit or worried more about your status in the world?  Are you pleasing God or man?  Do you want to sin or do you want to stop sinning?
Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live. Romans 8:12-13
            If you are living according to the Spirit, your thoughts will be on life eternal, not the flesh temporary.
