Zechariah 4:6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.

When we hear the term or people say they’re grinding, that usually means they have more than one source of income, they’re working long hours, and/or they’re working more than 5 days a week. Society pats them on the back because they see them working hard to provide for their family or accomplish a goal.

God wants us to rely on Him. If God instructs us to work long hours or have two jobs, that’s one thing. However, if we’re doing all these things in our own efforts, that’s another thing. 

If we’re relying on ourselves to get ahead, what’s the point of God being around? How can we use our faith? Or, are we only calling God when we’re exhausted?

It may be in our best interests to rest, but we have a commitment to work. That lack of rest may impact our health or other responsibilities.

Grinding sounds great to certain people, but be sure it’s God who’s leading you to grind.
