"He will not fear evil tidings, his heart being firm in his trust in Yahveh."
Should we take steps to provide for ourselves, or should we rely completely on Yahveh to take care of everything?
If relying on Yahveh is taken to mean doing nothing for ourselves, it is certainly not Yahveh’s
will. The Torah says that Yahveh will bless us in all that we do, (Deuteronomy 15:18) which obviously means
that He expects us to do for ourselves. Trust in Yahveh is all-important.
Some people are capable of doing things for themselves, yet, they are unable to,
because of their fears. Those who have firm faith and trust in Yahveh are much less likely to become
victims of such paralyzing fears.
