God is called in biblical myth “Shadai,” translated by the wisdom masters as, “He who said to his world, ‘Dai’ - enough.” Two meanings well up from the word. The first is that the creative process was stopped when God said enough. Divinity turned to humanity and said, “I have done enough. You – each one of you – be my partners in completing the work of creation.” Have you ever created something, conceived of a project and then handed over responsibility for it to another. You have to really trust that person to “entrust” to them Your creation. The phrase “Raba Emunatecha” – from the Hebrew liturgy, literally means “Your trust is great.” I read it to mean that God’s trust IN US is great. God entrusts creation into our hands.
