It seems like these days, everywhere I turn I am hearing my protestant friends, and protestant music radio pastors and artists talking about being called to “a season of rest”.
Some seem to take it as like, literally stopping any effort to move on their own until they hear loudly and clearly the voice of God telling them what to do, in some cases for months or years on end. This seems strange to me, and I cannot find any biblical justification for it whatsoever. Even when I click through and read the manifold articles written by protestant bloggers, pastors, “theologians”, and the like, none of them offer any Biblical backing for this idea that seems to have come about from thin air.
It seems like they are using a different term for what we know as discernment, but executing it in a very strange way. Do any of you who are more familiar with this particular breed any insight here?
