and to live from His opinion of us.

The Day of Maturity
When the delight and effect of God’s love for you becomes a distant enough memory that all you’ve got left is the staged look of it upon your face—and you realize and dislike it—that is the day of hope, that is the day of maturity. Knowing for real that you cannot do anything apart from Him—and that you don’t want to—is a very great relief, because you’ve been proven and revealed as an authentic son or daughter of your Father. You miss Him! And what a good “missing” that is. Your efforts toward anything in the future will be properly qualified by your effort to know Him. Oh, how good and necessary that is for the children of God.
