I can’t help but wonder if Hashem is testing us as he did during our trek through the desert when we sent out the spies and we believed that He would not protect us against our enemies.

When we didn’t go into Gaza, rockets that fell did little damage and we and the world saw miracles. Once we took this mission into our own hands, the consequences became worse.

Would we be better protected if we do tehillim and practice trust in Hashem as we do with all our enemies rather than take fate into our own hands? Is this a trust test, an emuna test?

If then, the world saw these miracles clearly, would they better understand that we are Hashem's chosen children?

I wonder.


Dear Anonymous

I respectfully disagree with you.

We no longer live in a time of Hashem doing open miracles - like Kriyat Yam Suf - for us. We live in a time of Hester Panim.

But we see many miracles every day of this war! Hashem allowed this border policeman to notice and take car of this car, and prevent a disaster. Hashem allowed the horrible plan of the Rosh Hashana disaster to be discovered and foiled. Hashem allowed our Chayalim to see the many terrorists (dressed in Tzahal uniforms) come out of the tunnel and prevent them from executing a massive attack of a yishuv near the border.

It is our emunah, tefillot, Tehillim, Chessed that makes us worthy of these miracles. BUT, we must also do our hishtadlut.

There's also this miracle http://palmtreeofdeborah.blogspot.com/2014/07/there-is-god.html


If everything is measure for measure and if we do not do what they do, will it then not come back to us?

May Hashem protect the entire Jewish Nation always!


Please read the following in Chronicles Chapter 22:7:

"And David said to Solomon, "My son, as for me, it was in my heart to build a House in the name of the Lord my God.
8. But the word of the Lord was upon me, saying: 'You have shed much blood, and you have waged great wars; you shall not build a House in My Name because you have shed much blood to the ground before Me.
9. Behold a son will be born to you; he will be a man of peace, and I shall give him peace from all his enemies around about, for Solomon will be his name, and I shall give peace and quiet to Israel in his days."

We welcome the peace.
