The concept of בטחון, trust in Hashem is mentioned very often at the end of this beautiful prayer. What is בטחון, trust in Hashem? People say that they have בטחון but they still have fears.
The פסוק says, “הנה קל ישועתי” Hashem is my salvation, אבטח I have trust ולא אפחד and I have NO fear. If we are scared and have fear…then really we are not being so successful at בטחון.
The Chazon Ish says, that true בטחון is the conviction that NOTHING happens by accident. Everything which occurs has been previously determined by Hakadosh Baruch Hu. NO one so much as cuts his finger, down below, unless it has been previously announced up above, as the Gemara says.
If one is convinced of this, he has בטחון.
“השגחה פרטית” writes the Chazon Ish Divine providence of Hakadosh Baruch Hu towards a person, is based on measure of בטחון, that that person has in Hashem.
“ברוך הגבר אשר יבטח בה’, והיה ה’ מבטחו” The more intense the בטחון a person has in Hashem, the closer Hashem pays attention to him.
“השגחה פרטית” Divine Providence, is at the very foundation of all tefilla. If a person is not firmly convinced that Hashem takes a personal interest in him, there would be no reason to daven. But one who is in Hashem’s hands can relax and all fear leaves him.
Have a great day!
