Genesis 2:18…And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
I have a Greater and more deeper understanding of this scripture today more than ever before. If more husbands would study this verse along with Ephesians 5:25…Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; I say again if more husband would understand the true meaning of these verses of scripture there would be more happier relationships and stronger marriages then you could ever imagine
Woman was created because it was not good for man to be alone. The phrase "not good" means incomplete, unfinished, unfulfilled, deficient. Standing by himself—standing alone—man is...• incomplete • unfinished • unfulfilled • deficient• lonely
Therefore, it was not good for man to be alone. Without woman, man would have no suitable companion for love and comfort.
Without woman, man would have no person w
ith whom to share life, not someone of his own nature. And since the corruption of the earth by sin, man would soon die out and be an extinct species.
The point is this: man was only half of God's plan for human life. Woman was the other half. God's plan was not complete until woman was created. Woman was as much a part of God's plan for human life as man was. Therefore, it was not good that man should be alone. Man was incomplete and deficient without woman. Man needed woman, desperately needed her. God knew this when He first began to plan for human life upon earth. Consequently, God planned the creation of woman, planned to create her right along with man.
The same problems afflict and plague man today: loneliness emptiness deficiency incompleteness unfulfillment. I no longer want to be incomplete, unfinished, unfulfilled, deficient. Standing by myself—standing alone—• incomplete • unfinished • unfulfilled • deficient • lonely Husbands take a good LONG look at your wives and give thanks unto the Lord for her. James 1:17… Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
