The Baal Shem Tov was able many times to defy nature in his quest to serve the Creator. His connection to the Divine and his determination to walk out a life of holiness literally moved mountains. This kind of decisiveness is not found in everyone. But what does it take to have this ability?
Mashiach Yeshua declares that even the smallest amount of faith is enough to accomplish the greatest feats. Many times the reigning reason we have difficulty making decisions is that we lack faith. If we lack faith and determination, we are impaired, for not only are we stuck in our lives, but opportunities pass us by. Our decisions in life must be empowered with faith – faith in what has been given to us in the form of truth and understanding, and faith to believe that somehow by doing we will be given what we need along the way.
Yeshua said to them, "Because of the lack in your emunah; for amen, I say to you, if you have the emunah of just a mustard seed and you tell this mountain, 'Be moved from here to there,' it will be moved from its place; there is nothing that will be defended from you." – Matthew 17:20, DHE
If we are working on this earth for the sake of Heaven, it is incumbent upon us to take these leaps on a daily basis. The distances of the leaps may vary, but one thing remains the same: the leap. If we take time to be lost and found in Hashem through prayer and good deeds, then when the time comes our leaps become more doable. Once we make the decision to act in whatever we are called to do in life, the gaps will close and we will continue to step on solid ground.
