Society tells us to work hard, don’t stop, don’t sleep, and grind until we get what’s ours. Our logical mind tells us the more we work, the more we’ll have.

God’s word, on the other hand, tells us to rest in Him, trust in Him, and rely on the blessing. We’re to work, but only as the Lord directs us (Col. 3:23).

Doing it society’s way may get us what we want, but we’re also tired, some relationships may have been strained trying to achieve our goals, and our lifespan could be shortened because of exhaustion.

Under the blessing, we have sweat-less victories. Opportunities easily open up for people that trust in God. When we rest in Him, what took someone 10 years to complete may only take 2 years for believers.

Now, what are we going to choose? Logic or the Lord? I suggest the Lord.

Proverbs 10:22 The blessing of the LORD brings wealth, without painful toil for it.
