Everyone has been assigned to a post, and if each of us executes his charge (and we all intuitively know what we should be doing in regards to Torah, Mitzvohs, and stam menchlicheit), our side will carry the day.
But rather than focus on our avodas Hashem, many of us waste our time worrying about the big picture.
And for this we also have to do Teshuva.
It’s Teshuva for our lack of bitochon and emunah in Hashem’s Hashgacha. And it’s not that we are a bit light in terms of the requisite faith because there is no such thing as requisite faith.
Emunah is about what your eyes can’t see and yet you know it with a certainty. The Teshuva is not for what you should have believed. It’s for what you should have known. And what you should have known is that Hashem doesn’t do weekends.
As the Chazon Ish tells us, although Hashem doesn’t promise us a rose garden, everything is under His control. There are absolutely no accidents, mistakes, or coincidences.
He’s on the job, and being above time He doesn’t suffer from any 24/7 limitations.
So what exactly do we have to do with Hashem’s battle plan?
Are we generals?
All that’s being asked of us is that we give a good account of ourselves as privates. And that requires nothing more than to treat Hashem as we would our iPhone or any other norishkeit, to which we give our complete, focused, and respectful attention.
