Medrash: Balak 5771

Behold, the Medrash Shiur from Wednesday night. Every altercation with evil is a moment which defines us as who we are. Hence, our struggles and temptations are not out to mess us up rather to help us become what we are meant to be.

A few questions.

First, I understood the Rebbe to say that evil kind of hijacks Hashem's divine energy when we do aveiros but also wants us to be wiped out. Where would that leave evil?

Second, we are supposed to use our own faculties and talents to serve Hashem to earn our bread yet at the same time we are to give up our sense of control over to Hashem. This seems to me, in a sense, contradictory.
