On Faith, Part 1: 20 Menachem Av, 5745 · August 7, 1985

Classic Torah sources teach two conflicting ideas when it comes to “Trust in G-d”: On the one hand, a person is commanded to rest assured that G-d will deliver him from any predicament, in a way that will be openly and clearly good. On the other hand, he must joyfully acknowledge that G-d is the source of all good, and that everything He does is good - so the present state is also “good.”

Classic Torah sources teach two conflicting ideas when it comes to “Trust in G-d”:

On the one hand, a person is commanded to rest assured that G-d will deliver him from any predicament, in a way that will be openly and clearly good; to never lose hope, for G-d is the source of infinite goodness.

On the other hand, if one’s prayers have not yet effected the desired outcome, he must joyfully acknowledge that G-d is the source of all good, and that everything He does is good - so the present state is also “good.”

The explanation: A Jew’s life-force derives from the commandments of the Torah of Life, given by the G-d of Life. So regardless of external circumstances, the Mitzvah itself to serve G-d with joy, is a permanent source of stability and faith.
