Deus não vai se manifestar ao povo que só busca Seus benefícios. Ele vai se manifestar aos que buscam Sua face. No Antigo Testamento, se alguém se recusasse a mostrar o rosto à você, estaria deliberadamente lhe rejeitando. As antigas ordens da Igreja adotavam práticas similares. Podemos nos gabar de nossas realizações ou ignorar nossas deficiências. Não importa o que façamos: somente o arrependimento vai nos levar a algum lugar com Deus.

Deus só vai tornar a Sua visitação em avivamento permanente se você e eu, com lágrimas e arrependimento, Lhe prepararmos um lugar. O avivamento e a visitação do Senhor não devem ser apenas “momentos”. Assim, Ele não irá mais piscar os olhos diante de nossa ignorância. Ele vai, literalmente, fechar Seus olhos e não olhar em nós para que não aconteça que sejamos consumidos por Seu olhar.

Deus está farto de vociferar instruções à Igreja: Ele quer nos guiar sob Suas vistas. Isto significa que precisamos estar perto d’Ele, perto o suficiente para vermos Sua face. Ele está cansado do vexame de ter de nos corrigir publicamente. Por muito tempo, temos buscado Suas mãos. Queremos o que Ele pode fazer por nós, queremos Suas bênçãos, emoções, arrepios, queremos os peixes e os pães. Todavia, nos retraímos diante do chamado a que busquemos Sua face.

Se buscarmos a face de Deus, obteremos Seu favor. Temos experimentado a onipresença de Deus, mas agora estamos experimentando a manifestação de Sua presença. Isto, sim, faz cada pêlo de nosso corpo se arrepiar e põe para correr as forças demoníacas.

Se você é um pastor e está sob a unção de Deus, prega melhor. Mas debaixo da glória de Deus, tropeça, gagueja, não consegue fazer nada. Quando você dirige o louvor e é ungido, canta melhor. Mas sob a glória de Deus, mal pode cantar. Por quê? Porque Deus declarou que carne nenhuma vai se gloriar em Sua presença6. Isto não significa que você seja uma má pessoa ou que viva em pecado. Significa que você é simplesmente carne e sangue diante da presença do Todo-Poderoso. Lembra o que aconteceu na dedicação do templo de Salomão? O sacerdote não pôde ministrar. Creio que ele não foi impedido de ministrar a bênção, mas caiu com o rosto em terra por causa do temor!
