There are times in life where we see ourselves as incapable of succeeding at a particular task.  We doubt our abilities, and sometimes become paralyzed as a result. The Torah is concerned that perhaps the Jewish people would be overcome with doubt when seeing the nations that dwell in the land of Israel.  Perhaps the people would see the size of the nations and contemplate that conquering the land is an impossibility.  Hashem commands the people to not fear, but instead remember that Hashem will assist them as He did when they left Mitzrayim.  The Shela zt”l explains that if the people have the attitude that it is impossible to be victorious without Hashem’s assistance, but with Hashem’s help they can be successful, then they will win, and indeed there is no need to fear.  However, if the people feel that they can be victorious because of their creative strategy and strength, and not relying on the assistance of Hashem, then they should fear.  We are reminded that in life, so much more is possible on an individual level when we put our faith in Hashem to help us.  As a people of faith, we recognize that we cannot be successful without help from above. Good Shabbos!

- I will be out of the office until August 24th, please contact Rabbi Sharbat for any matters which are urgent or time sensitive.
