There was once a Jew who was ill and he asked his rabbi for a blessing for a complete recovery. The rabbi sent him to the village Hannipol (Anipoli in Poland) to see the doctor there, who will be able to cure him. So the Jew went to Hannipol, but did not find any doctor there.

He went back to his town, told the rabbi that he did not find any doctor in Hannipol, and asked him whom he had in mind. The rabbi asked him: “When one of the inhabitants of Hannipol becomes ill, what does he do?” The patient answered that since they don’t have a doctor there, the only thing they can do is pray to G-d to heal them. The rabbi answered him: “This is the Doctor to whom I sent you as well”.

G-d wants us to do many things on our own and not to find them ready. But this can cause us to forget that everything and not only our health is dependent on G-d, and to start relying just on ourselves. We need to stop from time to time and remember that everything comes from Him and not from us.

Shabbat Shalom,

Arie from the Yeshiva
