NOTHING WILL STAND IN THE WAY OF STRONG WILL

“THE ALMIGHTY CAME TO BILAAM AT NIGHT AND SAID TO HIM: IF THESE PEOPLE CAME TO CALL YOU, ARISE, GO WITH THEM." (Bamidbar 22:20)

     The Talmud (Makos 10b) takes note that previously in verse twelve the Almighty told Bilaam not to go with Balak's messengers who requested that he accompany them to curse the Jewish people. From here the Talmud deduces the principle, "In the way a man wishes to go, he is led."

If a person wants to do evil, he will be able to do so. But that individual will have to pay a heavy price for for the culmination and, by extension, the nefarious acts for which this person pines. Conversely, someone who wishes to study Torah and fulfill the Almighty's commandments will be successful. When you wish to traverse along a certain path in life, you will be divinely assisted.

     "Nothing stands in the way of a strong will." There are many things that we wish for half-heartedly, but when you strongly set your mind on a particular goal, you will have the strength and abilities necessary to effectuate that goal. What a person truly wants in life, he will usually obtain. (Alai Shur, pp.120-1)

     Rabbi Avigdor Miller comments (Rejoice O Youth, p.l) that the Almighty guides the person who seeks wisdom, and the amount of guidance is commensurate to the perseverance of the seeker.

     When you feel a strong need for something, you will not feel the perplexities which you encounter even though you might have to work laboriously to accomplish your goals. When you are not intensively motivated to do something, you will procrastinate, which, in turn, will seem to be interminable.  Additionally, the quality of the undertaking will be severely compromised.

     It is squarely on the shoulders of the individual to steadfastly and unwaveringly have a sense of self do good.  It is up to you to intensify your will to do good.  The stronger your resolve, the more you will actually accomplish. Lack of spiritual accomplishment does not come from lack of ability, but from lack of will. Work on developing a strong desire for spiritual growth and you will be amazed at the positive changes you will experience.

Rabbi Ben Tzion Yadler used to quote the Alter of Nevardok, “There is no such thing as 'I cannot.' What happens is that a person is missing the will and then he claims that he can’t”.

Wishing everyone a Shabbot Shalom Rabbi and Reb. Perelson.
