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.”
(Genesis 2:18 NLT)
When addressing single people, good-intentioned, married Christians are quick to quote the first half of this verse, “It is not good for the man to be alone,” while forgetting the other half of the verse, “I will make a helper who is just right for him.” It amazes me that it’s God who noticed that it isn’t good for the man to be alone and went about to make a suitable partner for him. Even though the Bible doesn’t mention Adam’s plea for a partner, God knew his real need. After all, God had made him and who else would know the creature better than the Creator? If you’re single and looking, remember that God realizes your need more than you do and He can provide you with the right companion. Just as He brought Eve to Adam without Adam trying hard to make it happen (Adam was actually asleep when God created Eve), God can do the same for you today.
God knows what you need before you ask Him.
