You should learn to open yourselves up.
Do not deceive yourselves, nor be proud.
Be humble and study to be sincere.
Oftentimes we are not sincere with God and with His Word.
Sometimes the Light comes slowly, only little by little.
But when it comes, yield to it.
Walk softly with fear and trembling.
Deal with self to the uttermost limit, or rather, let the Holy Spirit deal with you without restraint.
