Studying Sha’ar HaBitachon, Rabbeinu Bachaya’s “Gate of Trust” ~ the Timeless Torah Book that can teach US ALL How to Live with Certainty and Discover Tranquility!
Chapter Four, Part Thirteen: “WHERE’S THE MONEY”
Be it resolved that we are supposed to Trust that Hashem alone is the source of sustenance. To believe with perfect conviction that our toil notwithstanding, it’s G-d who grant us the success we achieve in procuring a livelihood.
We’ve already established that despite this Torah truism, the Torah itself mandates a real and wholehearted investment of effort to [seemingly] achieve it.
Maintaining Bitachon then means that we rely on Hashem to sustain us and know that our mandated efforts will only be as effective as the Creator chooses.
Assuming we successfully internalize this measure of Faith, and fully Trust in G-d to provides our basic needs and staples. The next big issue requiring clarification is this: what if someone wants to enjoy living with more (then just a bare bones kind of) Parnassa/livelihood?
Simply stated: if one craves extra comforts or luxuries in life (as most do), will the greater measure or intensity of effort make the Difference?!
Rabbeinu Bachaya will now addressed this very question. Drawing on a range of classic and contemporary Torah-true sources we will learn how properly appreciate his deceptively simple words to reveal incredible profundity that can literally transform the way we experience life!
