Step six is the passage: “G d stands over him, and the whole earth is full of His glory and He searches his mind and heart [to see] if he is serving Him as is fitting.” We often think of G d as the all-knowing and all-powerful Creator of the universe. However, this passage from the Chabad classic, Tanya, emphasizes that Hashem is profoundly concerned for every individual, and furthermore, he’s actually depending on us! G d surveys our innermost thoughts and feeling, because our serving Him properly is of paramount importance. This inspiring thought should naturally fill us with Yirat Shomayim (Awe of Hashem).
