In Grinding Part 1, we mentioned when people say they’re grinding, they’re usually working a lot and losing sleep. The only being who doesn’t need sleep is God.

Psalm 121:4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel Will neither slumber nor sleep.

If we’re up long hours “grinding” only getting around 4 hours of sleep, that can negatively impact our health. Studies say lack of sleep weakens our immune system.

We need to ask ourselves if God instructed us to do all of this or if we’re depending on ourselves to be wealthy and successful. The world says grinding is the key to our goals, but what does God’s word say about that? Proverbs 10:22 says the blessing of the LORD brings wealth, without painful toil for it.

This scripture doesn’t mean we don’t work. It means we work under the blessing. Under the blessing, we don’t have to “grind” like the rest of the world. We let God lead us on when and where we should work and let the blessing do the rest.

It’s all about our dependence on God. If we’re grinding like the world, we’re more dependent on ourselves than God and that can lead to exhaustion and an early death. Depend on God rather than self.
