Before studying the Bible, make a conscious decision to not use only your reason to reveal its truths. Then ask God to reveal them to you through His Holy Spirit, in combination with your reason. (John 16:13, Psalm 119:18)
"Upon the threshold of investigation of the word of God, inquirers after truth should lay aside all prejudice, and hold in abeyance all preconceived opinion, and open the ear to hear the voice of God from His messenger."
"Make up your mind that your former theories must change if they are not in harmony with the doctrines of the Bible. You are called upon to put forth diligent effort to discover what is truth."
"The word of God is to be our guide, not the opinions or ideas of men. Let those who would be truly sanctified search the word of God with patience, with prayer, and with humble contrition of soul. Let them remember that Jesus prayed, 'Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.' "
