I have heard many people say that if G-d would only do a miracle they would believe. After all, in the Torah we read of many miracles that G-d did on a regular basis. Why don’t we see these miracles these days?
The Lubavitcher Rebbe once addressed a similar question from a skeptic. If you look at his response with an open mind, it could change your perspective.
In a letter from 1956, the Rebbe wrote the following. This to someone who said that if G-d would show me a miracle I would then believe:
“Take a good look at your own past, and you will recognize that you have already witnessed miracles and wonders. Do you really want to test G-d? Do you really want to be brought again into a place of mortal danger and have to be saved? You know very well the trauma that is experienced by being in danger because you have been there. It is just the evil inclination’s voice inside you trying to come up with an excuse to avoid observing G-d’s commandments.”
May we all notice the miracles that G-d bathes us in every living moment.
