You might be referring to Hadith #250 in Nahj al-Balaghah:

Hadith n. 250

  1. Amir al-mu'minin, peace be upon him, said: I came to know Allah, the Glorified, through the breaking of determinations, change of intentions and losing of courage.

وقال عليه السلام : عَرَفْتُ اللهَ سُبْحَانَهُ بِفَسْخِ الْعَزَائِمِ وَحَلِّ الْعُقُودِ


(Note: the hadith number may vary slightly based on the print of Nahj al-Balaghah you are reading.)
