How has your god communicated with you? If he assures you, then somehow you two must talk in some way, yet as far as the bible is concerned, nobody has met god:

No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him (John 1:18)

Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see; to whom be honour and power everlasting (1 Timothy 6:16)

I shall assume that if you cannot see him, then it only fits to reason that you cannot hear him.

This isn't evidence for your god, hell, it isn't even evidence for a god in general.

Nothing is perfect? Excellent, you've admitted that your god is not perfect. This then calls into question whether your god is all-powerful, all-knowing and omnipresent.
