That was a really nice shiur. However, how do you know when Hashem is sending you help and maybe you are just asking for more? The 100 rubles from the merchant, to me, sounded like Hashem sending help. THe man waited did not want to take the 100 rubles, and maybe this was just being passive?! Reply

If we emphasize the 'trust' interpretation of Bitachon we are in danger of inviting inaction and a passivity which borders on indolence. If however we emphasize Bitachon to be a removal of 'the fear of man' as many sages did we end up with a psychology that promotes appropriateness in all aspects of our service to HaShem, including action in a measured, non-coerced, correct manner. Emunah is strengthened when Bitachon removes us from the tyranny of man to allow us to be free to serve H-shem, replacing our fear of man with fear of G-d. Reply

Bitachon Dear Mrs. Freeman,

This Part 1teaching was such a blessing to me tonight. During this month of Elul I've been examining my life and in repentance for many things. I acknowledge that trust, surrender and humility seem to be the common points of failure I've experienced. I hear the questioning voices asking who I'm trusting but more importantly, as you said, I hear why do you deserve the help. Why I've entertained such thoughts I don't know. As you taught in "Power of the Mind", I must be more diligent in guarding the thoughts of my mind so hey don't gain entrance into my heart. Thank you for our teaching this to me. I sincerely ask for prayer for myself in this area and as you advised, I'll ask Hashem to help me with my trusting and surrendering all to Him. Reply
