Torah Learning and Emuna

True Torah learning enhances a person’s emuna (faith) in Hashem and in one’s ability to see G-d’s loving-kindness in every event and everything. Building and reinforcing emuna in order to get closer to Hashem is the ultimate purpose of Torah learning. If a person’s intention in learning Torah does not include the desire to enhance one’s emuna, especially one’s emuna in hashgacha pratit (Divine Providence), then the person is missing the entire point of Torah study.
