Double Blessing

The passuk implies that a ba’al bitachon has double blessings in his life, as it says,”Baruch hagever asher yivtach…” and “vihaya Hashem mivtacho.”

Let’s look at each one separately.

The First Blessing

A person who has bitachon in Hashem is saved from so much suffering that is naturally caused by a life of worry. Someone who is relying on himself to bring home money is going to find himself in many unpleasant situations. Desperation can lead to risky investments that may destroy a person – financially and spiritually – if they fall through. Lying and cheating in business is also an outcome of failing to see where parnassah truly comes from.

When you have believe that Hashem is the provider, there’s no need for risk. Hashem will take care of you even without your investment. There’s no need to work yourself down to the bone, the money is going to come either way.

Much of the stress we face in life is from the uncertainty in what we’re doing. Maybe I should work harder, switch careers, move to a different city?? Bitachon melts away the stress. The Ribono Shel Olam takes care of us in every situation.

When you have what you need today, you can be calm about tomorrow; it will be taken care of.
