The Bottom Line
When we find ourselves in the constraints of our personal Mitzrayim, the first thing we need to do is internalize and recognize that Hashem can (and will) redeem us; this will strengthen our bitachon in Hashem. However, very often, our doubts, fears, and concerns – in short, our avodah kasha – prevent us from internalizing this truth and don’t allow us to bring out the inner bitachon that we intrinsically have. In these few remaining, precious days, before Pesach – no matter what my current matzav may be – I will think about these lessons, and I will strengthen my emunah shleimah that Hashem can and will redeem me; I will also think about what Hashem is already doing for me (and continues to do) and let that serve as a mishan for me; I will also talk to Hashem in my davening like He’s my Father, asking him to redeem me from my galus. And in the zechus of strengthening my emunah and bitachon, may I and the rest of Klal Yisroel, merit to see tremendous yeshous and refuos this Pesach, and witness the ultimate end of this long galus, with the coming of the Mashiach Tzidkeinu, b’mchera b’yomeinu, Amen!
