The Spirit with which God is Delighted is an Afflicted one because it Reverences Him and Trembles at His Word.
Our Spirit must be kept in Continual Reverential Fear of the Lord.
All self-reliance and self-conceit must be shattered; the Word of God must be Accepted as the Sole Guide.
The Believer must posses within him a Holy Fear;
He must have absolutely no confidence in himself;
He must be as one who Spirit is so Stricken that he dare NOT raise his head BUT humbly Follows the Command of God.
