NURTURING FAITH

Rabbi Nachman teaches,

The main thing is faith! Every person must search within himself and strengthen himself in faith. For there are people who suffer the worst illnesses and afflictions only because of fallen faith, because, “G-d will send you wondrous plagues, great and faithful plagues, and great and faithful sicknesses” (Deuteronomy 28:59) . The plagues and sicknesses are “faithful” because they come on account of a lack of faith. Fallen faith causes “wondrous” plagues, for which no medicine, prayer, or ancestral merit is of any avail…

The remedy is to dig down until we find the waters that nurture faith. These are the waters of counsel – the spiritual pathways that enable us to deepen our faith, as it is written, “I will acknowledge Your Name, for You have done wonders, [sending] counsels from afar, nurturing faith” (Isaiah 25:1) . True spiritual counsel nurtures faith, enabling it to grow.
