And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.” Genesis 2:18 NKJV
God created the Heavens and the Earth. He created the sun to provide light in the daytime and the moon light at night. He created the animals that creep along the ground and all manner of cattle. He created the birds that fly through the sky.
God created a man in His own image and likeness. He blessed the man and gave him dominion over the Earth and all the creatures that dwell in it. The man was the crown jewel of God’s creation. He alone was created in the image and likeness of God!
Why did God wait to create the first women? God wanted Adam to realize his need for a helpmate. God wanted Adam to realize the animals had companions, but he was alone!
My wife and son are 180 miles away in a hospital. My son is weak. His body is wracked with pain. My wife is doing everything she can to make sure he is cared for. We decided I would drop them off at the hospital and return home.
I am at home while my wife cares for my son. I felt like I should be with them. I am at the hospital with my son! My helpmate who is bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh is with my son. I am there as well. The Lord created us to be one in Him today!
I take my wife for granted. I get irritated and short tempered with her. There are times when I have even wondered if I married the right person. I need to repent before the Lord. I should thank Him for the good and godly wife He blessed me with!
I do not have to do everything myself. My wife has my trust and confidence. Her heart belongs to the Lord. My trust and confidence in my wife is a reflection of my trust and confidence in Jesus.
It is not good for men to be alone. We need the influence and assistance of godly women in our lives. We need older brothers in the Lord to come along side and help us on our journey through life! We need Jesus to lead us and guide us into His perfect will for our lives!
If the Lord has blessed you with a godly wife you are blessed indeed! If you are single wait for the Lord to bring the helpmate He chooses for you!
If you are a married woman your husband has needs only you can meet. He needs your love and encouragement. If you are a single lady ask the Lord to form His heart in the husband He has chosen for you.
Man, or women married or not do not forsake the gathering of God’s people. Jesus designed us to live in loving relationships with each other. Gather with likeminded people and lift-up the name of Jesus!
The Great Shepherd wants His flock to love each other as much as He does. Tell someone you love that Jesus loves them!
