G-d gave us protection from evil and doing wrong. When we stray from G-d and do wrong HaShem is there to help us. This is true. When I abandoned G-d HE never abandoned me. I cried out to G-d “Please help me. Forgive me.” HaShem did.
G-d has put in me and all of us Jews a piece of HIM. This means all of us Jews have a piece of G-d’s soul in us.
Moses then began to encourage the Jewish people to uphold their covenant with G‑d that was forged at the Giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai. In return for keeping the covenant, G‑d would hold them especially dear, above His love for all other people.
[Moses told the Jewish people,] “G‑d has set you apart today, to be His treasured people.” Deuteronomy 26:18
G‑d has “set us apart” from evil and wrongdoing. Our Divine nature and true inner self render us totally above any involvement with evil, and therefore, inherently incapable of wrongdoing.
Therefore, when we do something that distances us from G‑d, we can always return to Him. When we are motivated to return to G‑d out of passionate love for Him, not only can we forsake negative behavior and habits at any instant (thereby defying the natural forces of inertia and habituation); we can even convert past deliberate wrongdoings into motivations for positive behavior.1
