Hashem Provides

Another famous Pasuk related to the specialness of Eretz Yisrael comes from the words, עיני ה׳ אלוקיך בה מראשית השנה עד אחרית השנה, "the eyes of Hashem are on it from the beginning of the year to the end of the year." Not only is there a special connection between the Land of Israel, Hashem and the Jewish people, but we also learn a lesson regarding Parnassa from this verse. In essence, Hashem decides what our livelihood will be from one Rosh Hashana to the next. This is one of the reasons why Teshuva during the month of Elul is so important. This knowledge that our livelihood is already set for one full year, should give us peace of mind. Our attitude should be that Hashem is taking care of all of our needs. We are meant to be at peace with everything. But since we do not rely on miracles and it is expected that we work diligently at fulfilling our part of the bargain, Hashem will fulfill His. We must also remember that we are למעלה מן הטבע, above nature as a people and with faith, we can overcome everything.
