Bitachon Or Hishtadlus (14) I Believe And Trust - But With Tranquility And Honesty
Length: 54 min
Based on the writings of Rav Chaim Cohen, the Chalban, Tallelei Chaim, Sefer Bereishis, P. 551. Revisiting our original questions as to why Yaakov had to daven even though Hashem had promised and why Avraham asked how he would know that he was to inherit the land. Overcoming fear with bitachon (trust) and emunah (faith). The need to participate in what is happening. Hashem requires our hishtadlus (effort) in this physical world while also having bitachon in Him. The inherent conflict between wanting to learn and being to afford a family. Beyond trust and faith, a person requires shalvas hanefesh (peace of mind [which stems from trust in Hashem]) and honesty in his dealings with others and observance of mitzvos - when things are not working out, does he begin to compromise his observance? The degree of tranquility when something big does not work out.
