When Man is Alone

When man is alone just like Adam was without a wife at first, God considers that as “not being good”. In Genesis 2:18 the Bible says, “And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him”. When God says it is not good, it means it is not good.

Man is created to have a suitable companion and that is why when Adam was all by himself, God came up with a plan to solve this problem. Any man who has so much love to give will always find it uncomfortable in being alone without a suitable mate. This is just in line with what God expresses when he says that it is not good that man should be alone.

In the same verse of Scripture God says, “I will make him an help meet for him”. God is saying that it is his job to find a wife suitable for a man who is alone. If a man is looking for someone to marry, such a one must first realize that it is God who makes someone suitable for marriage. The first and foremost thing that needs to happen is that God should be consulted and this should be done in prayer.

When God said, “I will make an help meet for him”, that is when Adam’s search for the most suitable mate also begun. God does his part and man also does his part. Man can be devoted to things, but he can not find true fulfillment in things. God created different animals, but none of them was close enough in the way he intended. Verse 20 says, “And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him”. The time of searching for a spouse can be difficulty at times, but when God is part of the search, there is not much to worry about. God brings to pass whatever he promises. If he say he will, it means just that, he will. If you are single know for sure God is making a suitable mate for you.

Anyone looking for someone to marry should first pray to God. God is the one who makes and brings people to together in marriage. When you pray before finding a spouse, you will also pray when you face difficulties in your marriage. Let God be with you in your marriage and he will guide you. It is good for man and his wife to be together and not good that man should be alone.
