The Last Word

Bitachon - trust in God - in not an effortless emotion, which leads a person to sit back and wait presumptuously for God's blessings. To the contrary, a person who truly trust in God knows that, in order to merit God's blessings, he must actively arouse feelings of total dependency on God - a realization that his salvation can only come from the Almighty, and not from "luck," "statistics" or any other imaginary source of good fortune.

This message was encapsulated in the Chasidic aphorism "Think good, and it will be good." I.e. through actively arousing feelings of total dependency on God - "think good" - a person elevates himself to be a suitable receptacle for God's blessings - "it will be good."

(Based on Likutei Sichos vol. 36, p. 4ff.)
