Pride covers our heart like a box covering a lamp
Pride refuses to let us let go of sins in the past
Pride won't be able to hear God's voice
Pride thinks it's already free
Pride likes to hide secrets and not tell God
Pride denies there are any problems
Pride doesn't allow for weakness.
Lay yourself bare before Him
You do not have a truth that God's truth can not overcome
He who began a good work in you will complete it.
