This is the avoda we have real free will to do.
The awe is that Hashem is doing everything just to set it up so that we may exercise this real free will.
It is humbling.
Everything is Hashem, including the will we use, but we get the credit.
My insight is that animals are sustained without real free will. Shall I abandon the real free will He gives and ask instead to be sustained like an animal, out of His Goodness?
This is why awakening to this application, to this depth of application, of real free will is transformative.
