Genesis 2:18 Godly Companionship

Genesis 2:18 Godly Companionship

18 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

So after He created Adam, God made a helper for him. Albeit also a companion, it’s important to note the word God used to describe Eve was, helper.

To better understand why God inspired Moses to write the word helper in the book of Genesis, let\’s look at the actual Hebrew phrase and the words uses by the prophet.

Moses was a divinely appointed prophet, and he was called by Yahweh to write the book according to visions given to him by God.

Yahweh inspired Moses to write about companionship for Adam (and for any man), a helper who would be pleasing in his sight, and with whom he could converse with, and be respectful to him, and supportive to his case and circumstances, and willing to grant his wants and wishes.

It is true that most women are not comfortable calling themselves their man\’s helper, but God\’s commands have little to do with our comfort.

In His Word, God is also clear on the responsibilities He bestowed on men who choose to have a companion.

Men are called to look after their companions, keep them safe and sound, provide a home where they can thrive and continue to serve God.

Men should respect and honor our companions, our wives, and we are called to love them as Jesus loves His church, as God loves His children.

“Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

God desires for men to have helpers, and for women to have someone special to help.

It is not good for a man to be alone, and neither for women to dwell in solitude.

Gentlemen! If God has not yet placed a female helper in your life, go to Him in prayer, thanksgiving and worship. Immerse yourself in your local fellowship and devote your life to serving our Lord.

Ladies! Has God delayed in finding you a man to serve & grow with? Likewise, you should dwell in prayer, lift your voice in worship and surrender yourself to God’s perfect plan through sacrificial works and devotion to your community.
