God is humbling us in this time of rest. He is moving in a way that most have not seen and taking this time to simplify the busyness of our lives. He wants to show us that by laying down some of the comforts of our lives we in turn will grow closer to Him. The Spirit of God calls you to ask Him – “What is it that I need to give up that is distracting me from growing closer to YOU and from seeing the calling on my life?” He is calling you to then lay it down as He wants to show you a new closeness that you have never felt during this season of change and transformation. Will you lay it down? Will you let Him show you? Romans 12:1-2 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
