A Simple Teaching, Difficult To Understand

I have just touched on a few events that must give us pause, but there is much, much more. When will we realize there is no one to help us here on earth – that in the entire world there is no one to even raise a voice on our behalf? We, the Jewish people, are like one little lamb among 70 ferocious wolves who stand ready to pounce upon us and totally devour us.

There is only One source of help for us, only One support, and that is our Heavenly Father, Almighty G-d. From time immemorial He has saved us from their clutches. We need not fear. We need only turn to Him – and if we do so, not only will He answer us, He will take our hands and lead us through the dense darkness that looms menacingly before us.

“If only My people would heed Me – If  Israel would walk in My way, I would subdue their foes and against their tormentors turn My Hand…” (Psalm 81).

What a simple teaching, and yet how difficult to understand.
