Add this in your system.xml file

<field id="grid_view" translate="label comment" type="editor" sortOrder="20" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="1" showInStore="1">
    <label>Grid View</label>

Now create below Block file in your custom module


Content for this file is..

namespace Vendor\Module\Block\Adminhtml\System\Config\Form\Field;

use Magento\Backend\Block\Template\Context;
use Magento\Cms\Model\Wysiwyg\Config as WysiwygConfig;

class Editor extends \Magento\Config\Block\System\Config\Form\Field
    public function __construct(
        Context $context,
        WysiwygConfig $wysiwygConfig,
        array $data = []
        $this->_wysiwygConfig = $wysiwygConfig;
        parent::__construct($context, $data);

    protected function _getElementHtml(\Magento\Framework\Data\Form\Element\AbstractElement $element)
        $element->setConfig($this->_wysiwygConfig->getConfig(array('add_variables' => true, 'add_widgets' => false, 'add_images' => true)));
        return parent::_getElementHtml($element);

Create below file in your module


Content for this file is..

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
    <update handle="editor"/>

Run below command once

php bin/magento cache:clean && php bin/magento cache:flush

Hope this will help you!
