Devo Are matches made in heaven Part 4
Genesis 2:18-24 (NIV)
18 The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”
19 Now the Lord God had formed out of the ground all the wild animals and all the birds in the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. 20 So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds in the sky and all the wild animals.
But for Adam no suitable helper was found. 21 So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh. 22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.
23 The man said,
“This is now bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called ‘woman,’
for she was taken out of man.”
24 That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.
Does God want you to be alone? He sees your loneliness and has a plan. Don’t get ahead of His plan. First develop your relationship with Him. You’re going to need it if you plan on being married. There are no mind reading courses that work. lol. He created us, He knows what’s right for you. He wants us to be one flesh, and one in heart. What’s good for you is good for them and what’s good for them is good for you. Why is it so hard for a couple to grasp this? Take care of her men and she will take care of you. After all she is a gift from God. Disrespect her and you disrespect the gift giver. Hurt her, hurt yourself. Bless her, bless yourself. You too women. Men you are to protect and provide for the marriage. You are to keep it together. Why do I talk to men first, because you were made first.
