God quickly saw the need for fellowship in our lives. As God created the animals and had the man name them, He saw that man needed a helper like everyone else. He had hoped that fellowship with God would be sufficient, but saw quickly that man needed a person to love and to do life with. WOW-MAN, (the loose translation) was everything that the man could have ever hoped or dreamed for!!! God knew what he was doing. He made man a partner that would fill in all the gaps.
We, as husbands, often forget how amazing our wives really are. God created them to come along side and complete us. They sharpen us when we are blindly dull. They make us presentable in public–when we would attack the world mismatched and stained. They raise our kids, feed our faces, keep our family together and put the woman’s touch on our lives to make life bearable. In exchange, we leave our clothes on the floor, our food on the table and our manners at the door. What a fair exchange :(. As husbands, we need to treat our wives with the love and devotion they deserve, but , never receive!
I love my wife–I am the most fortunate person on the planet; and, when I see that WOW-MAN he gave me–I really know how loving and great God is to give me such a treasure!!!
God Bless You
Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.” 19 So the Lord God formed from the ground all the wild animals and all the birds of the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would call them, and the man chose a name for each one. 20 He gave names to all the livestock, all the birds of the sky, and all the wild animals. But still there was no helper just right for him.
21 So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep. While the man slept, the Lord God took out one of the man’s ribs and closed up the opening. 22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib, and he brought her to the man.
23 “At last!” the man exclaimed.
“This one is bone from my bone,
and flesh from my flesh!
She will be called ‘woman,’
because she was taken from ‘man.’”
24 This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.
25 Now the man and his wife were both naked, but they felt no shame.
