"The Way of G-d"

Part 2: “Divine Providence”
Chapter 3: “Personal Providence”

Paragraphs 2-3

As we said before, everything in the world has its roots in the Transcendent Forces, and had to first cascade downward realm after realm till it manifested itself here in this world (1:5:2-3). That also holds true for the aforementioned situations we've been placed in, in life. Nothing in our life just "happens"; and nothing is straightforward and aboveboard.

Hence, a lot goes on into the configuration of our lives, in the background. Not only must who we're to become be figured in beforehand when our spiritual challenges are given us-- the makeup of everything and everyone around us must be factored in as well. And it's G-d alone who determines the situations as well as the match-ups. Not chance, fortune, happenstance, or "the way of the world".

So we see that everything about us and everything around us is as it is on purpose. And that it was all set up by G-d for one reason: to challenge us to be the best we can be. It's also vital to realize that what we are and what happens to us is all for our ultimate good, whether we know or experience that to be true or not.

This series is dedicated to the memory of Yitzchak Hehrsh ben Daniel, and Sarah Rivka bas Yaakov Dovid.
