Who do you trust?

Yourself? Do we really always know everything?

Your friend? Does he always come through for you? Is he always able to help you?

Your politician? Really?

Your doctor and lawyer and accountant? Do they always know everything?

Who do you trust? Who can you trust? Is there anyone who is always able to help?

Israel trusted its army and intelligence, which were supposed to have been among the best. Then Hamas attacked.

In Afghanistan, Americans trusted its military. After all, America was a superpower. America retreated in disgrace.

Who do you trust?

Two hundred and twenty-five years ago, on the 19th day of Kislev, the first Lubavitcher Rebbe (who had been falsely arrested) was reciting Psalm 55 in prison. He later related, “When I was reading in the book of Psalms, the verse, ‘He redeemed my soul peacefully,’ before I began the next verse, I peacefully left (prison), by the G-d of peace.”

Psalm 55 ends with the three words, “Va’ani evtach boch” — and I will trust in You.

We do what we do. We try our best. We ask the experts. We utilize the most sophisticated equipment. And then we trust in G-d.

Because after all, no one else has the ability to ensure that our efforts will be successful.

“In G-d we trust,” is even printed on the U.S. currency.

And these days, people are becoming more aware, in Whom they should trust.

I remember the Lubavitcher Rebbe saying, that also regarding our Redemption with Moshiach, we should trust in G-d.

Trust. It’s powerful when we know Who to trust.
