Divine providence – Intellectually we know that Hashem creates and guides everything in life. Practically speaking it means that Hashem communicates with us through personal and worldly events; whatever we hear, see, feel or even smell is meant to teach us something. Nothing is happenstance. Absolutely nothing. Although it may appear that certain occurrences have little influence on my life, nonetheless they are closely ordained by Hashem to the last minute detail.
In fact as we take a closer look into this idea we can sense that our next breath depends entirely upon Hashem. Our existence is because He wills it so. Each of us belong in this world and play a great role in the universe; an idea that should pump us with meaning and self-worth.
Each morning we thank Hashem for re-creating us. From the moment we open our eyes we impress in our minds that life is a gift and adorned with purpose. Indeed we lived yesterday and are alive right now, but that does not mean that Hashem is obligated to continue to do so. Everything that happens is a present intended to help us grow spiritually and become more G-dly.
The concept of Divine intervention teaches us how much Hashem loves us and ‘longs’ to bond with us. He wants us to have the best life. What is the best? Hashem Himself is the best; He is the source of all goodness.
