Bless G-d Even in Your Deepest Pain

Updated: Oct 12, 2022



Divine Code for October 2, 2022

Today: Page 210


Topic 1:3 -- 1:5


If one cursed against any name of G-d, even the Explicit Name, without invoking against it another name of G-d, he is not liable for capital punishment by a court of law, although it is still forbidden.


One who blasphemes and then regrets his words and retracts them - even immediately - is still liable.


Let us be aware of His Greatness every moment and have "fear of God" every moment in every place. So that we always praise Him.


Like Job who endured much pain and suffering, but said not a single word of evil.

"But he said to her, “You talk as any shameless woman might talk! Should we accept only good from God and not accept evil?” For all that, Job said nothing sinful."Job 2:10


The greatest sorrow a person can experience is the loss of his loved ones. We can then say: Baruch Dayan HaEmet - Blessed is the Righteous Judge.


We bless Him, knowing that everything He gives is Righteous and therefore good, even if we don't understand it.


Or like the Mishnaic sages sages:


One shoul thank G-d for the bad, just as he blessed G-d for the good, as the verse says, "You shall love the L-rd, your G-d, with all you herat, with all your soul and with all your means." [The Hebrew word for "means" (modecha) als translates as "measere."] Why does the verse say, "with all of your menas"?] Whatever measure G-d calculates for you, if it is good or bad, you should thank Him.


The Talmud explains this passage as saying that the same way one blesses G‑d for the good with joy, so too one should, with a complete heart,a complete mind and willingly, bless G‑d for the not-good that befalls one.
