We know that everything is from HASHEM. We also know that we must do our part– our Hishtadlus. In theory it is easy to find the balance– I must act in the way of the world, yet knowing all the while that HASHEM runs everything. One of the great challenges of life is actually personifying that tightrope walk between Bitachon and proper Hishtadlus.
How hard should I be working? How seriously should I take the medical reports and new findings? When is it appropriate for me to say, “I have done my part, now it is in HASHEM’s hands”?
Drawing on some very inspiring examples of perfect Bitachon, this Shmuz helps us put our belief system into practice.
