Torah, Deuteronomy 9:28 – 9:29: Lest [the people of] the land from which you brought us out will say, “Because of the Lord’s inability to bring them to the land about which He spoke to them, and because of His hatred toward them, He has brought them out to slay them in the desert.” But they are Your people and Your inheritance, which You brought out with Your great strength and with Your outstretched arm.
Question: What is this appeal to the Creator?
Answer: This is a state when a person has the ability to soften the Creator’s attitude toward him and thus to overcome some of the obstacles smoothly, but he doesn’t agree to this.
He wants to overcome them in their truest form so his own egoism won’t come back to him and start arguing that it is possible to cheat a little and it is not necessary to do everything meticulously to the highest level.
These things are found at every step. But a person knows what to do. After all, when he receives an opportunity to work this way he has no doubts. It’s just that for him there always appears a point of making the hardest decisions.
