Coming close to the One to trust

The surest way of ensuring our happiness and success in life is by devoting ourselves wholeheartedly to learning what God expects of us (by studying His Torah), by addressing our prayers directly to Him, and by fulfilling His will.

תָּמִים תִּהְיֶה עִם ה’ אֱלֹקֶיךָ: (דברים יח:יג)
[Moses told the Jewish people, “Rather than trying to divine the future,] be wholehearted with G-d.” Deuteronomy 18:13

 

The month Elul bringing us time to reflect what we have done the last few months. Yesterday I spoke of these coming days that we remember not only how Moses found the people worshipping a golden calf, when he came down the mountain with the two stone tablets with God’s Words for His people.

These days we try to put ourselves right, and to bring ourselves in line with God’s mitzvot so that we can be clean to connect ourselves to God.

We do know the past, but not the future. To go further in our life we should try to find the right way and to reflect on the things and events we can see around us. All the time we also should be aware that we still have to learn a lot. Never, in this system of things, shall there be a moment that we know everything.

To make sure that we shall be able to have a good life and some reasonable happiness we best trust the Most High Elohim.

The surest way of ensuring our happiness and success in life is by devoting ourselves wholeheartedly to learning what God expects of us (by studying His Torah), by addressing our prayers directly to Him, and by fulfilling His will. {Igrot Kodesh, vol. 18, p. 205}
