Studying Sha’ar HaBitachon, Rabbeinu Bachaya’s “Gate of Trust” ~ the Timeless Torah Tome that can teach US ALL How to Live with Certainty and Discover Tranquility!

Chapter Four, Part Thirty-Nine: “RESULTS” after Taking Charge, Learning to Let Go!

In the previous Episodes we elaborated on the nature of misplaced Trust; namely relying on Hashem in areas of spiritual conduct where we’ve been told not to, but instead to take affirmative action.

In fact, even praying for guidance, when clear directions have already been provided makes no sense. By definition, it equals inappropriate [or even abuse of] Bitachon.

After learning how and what we are required to take charge to make Mitzvot happen, it’s time to learn about when it becomes appropriate to let go of the controls, to instead place unreserved Trust in Hashem.

Because when it comes to final conclusions – even in spiritual matters – relying on G-d is fully correct. And alongside that reliance, prayer too, becomes most appropriate.

Rabbeinu Bachaya will demonstrate the veracity of this nuanced application of Trust in an exquisitely woven tapestry of selected strands of scripture. This will prove that even in spiritual matters, the results forever remain in G-d’s hands, not ours!
