The Great Designer!

I enjoy reading and studying the Holy Bible from Genesis to Revelation. This morning I began once again with Genesis. The story of creation is absolutely beautiful: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1)  The more I read, the more I desire to worship the God of all Creation!

As I began reading through the story of creation, I did not get too far before I desired to share my morning reading of God’s Word with you. 

In Genesis 2: 18-22 it says, “And the LORD God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him. Out of the ground the LORD God formed every bird of the air; and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature that was its name. So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him. And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.”

“God did not want Adam to be lonely, so He fashioned a helper comparable to him.  This phrase indicates that this helper (or partner) would be truly fitting and fully adequatejust right. Some have thought that the term is demeaning, but it simply means “one who helps,” and in fact is used to describe God when He comes to our aid as written in Psalm 33:20, 115:9, 10, 11. The word helper does not refer to someone who is inferior.” Commentary

The month of June is when many weddings take place. If you are married, it is good to remember that it is because of God’s goodness that He has brought you a helper and partner to journey through life with!

If you are unmarried, remember that the LORD God intimately knows you. In His perfect time, according to the Lord’s good and perfect will for you, He will bring you a partner that is truly fitting, fully adequate, and just right! Most importantly however, remember that there are no greater joys than knowing Jesus’ perfect love – a perfect love that only Jesus can offer!

As we read through the creation story, we will see that not one detail was left out in His loving care for us. In Genesis 1:31 it says, “Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good.” Genesis 1:31

“God saw that all He had created was very good. You are part of God’s creation, and He is pleased with how He made you. If at times you feel worthless, or of little value, remember that God made you for a good reason. You are valuable to Him!” 

FATHER, thank you for Your Word. Thank you for reminding us of your intimate care and love you have for Your children. Thank you that through Jesus Christ, we can experience and enjoy an intimate relationship with You. Thank you that we can cast all of our cares upon You because You care for us. Thank you that You plan for our days and for our future and it is good!  Thank you for the reminder that we have a heavenly Father who always knows what we need even before we ask  -  in Jesus' Name Amen.
