Not sure what you mean here. How do you understand God better, if not by refining your way of describing him and his relationship to you?
And that's where I get uncomfortable with the word "prove." Once you think you have "proved" God's existence, then its a short distance to becoming convinced that your image of God is the "true" God. Then you believe that everyone else's image of God is wrong. And the jump from there to flying planes into buildings isn't as far as you might think.
We agree on this, for sure.
