Question — Why Did God Make Woman

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

LORD Jesus, we praise You for Your Word and that we can find unshakeableTruth. Please guide us and keep us close to Yourself whenever we tend to compromise Your Will. Enable us to seek You and to find You and to love You with all of our heart. Direct our steps and help us to live a life that is pleasing to You — one that glorifies You. In Jesus’ precious name we pray. Amen.

Did you ever ask yourself why God has made you? What was the reason that made God decide to make a helper for man?

God said that it isn’t good for man to be alone. So He made a helper (help meet) for him. None of the animals would do. No, man was in need of a helper comparable to him.

Woman came from man and she was created for the man — not the other way around (1 Corinthians 11:8-9). I know, yes, this immediately raises flags! And some will emphasize that we — man and woman — were created equally. I’ll come back to that in another day’s post in the near future.

Today I want you to dwell on this thought: Your man was alone, but God didn’t want him to stay alone, and so He made you especially for this man. Just as no other could ever fill the void of your heart except for Christ the LORD, so no other woman could ever be what you are to your man.

Revive Us Again

Will You not revive us again,
That Your people may rejoice in You?

Psalm 85:6

LORD Jesus, we praise You for saving us from our sins. How amazing is Your Grace that You have for us. Let us remember the day and the hour, back then when You have opened our eyes and have called us by name. Enable us to praise You, God Almighty. All the glory be to You — for You alone are worthy to be praised! Help us, O LORD, we ask, and revive us again that we may glorify Your great name among the people. In Jesus’ mighty name we pray. Amen.

Have we lost to see the beauty and power of Christ the LORD? Do we seek Him but find Him not? Has He gone away?

LORD Jesus, revive us again!

Do we fail to see, confess, and ask for forgiveness of sin in our life? Isn’t it tempting to think we are (doing) better than others? Would we say that we have no sin?

LORD Jesus, revive us again!

Are we truly convinced that God Almighty is still in control and above all that is going on inside of our heart and around the world? Do we honestly believe He still loves us?

LORD Jesus, revive us again!

Have we grown cold in love for our brothers and sisters in Christ? When the world looks at our family, the Household of God, what do the people see? Will they stand amazed and wonder how great our God is? Or will they see how we long for their approval?

LORD Jesus, revive us again!

What things are at the top of our prayer list these days? Protection of our finances? For the LORD to keep us safe and healthy? That God will watch over our family and friends? For the lost to repent and be saved?

LORD Jesus, revive us again!

Living in a Different World?

I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.
They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.
Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.

John 17:15-17

LORD Jesus, help us to be hearers and doers of Your Word. Let the people around us see the Light in our life. Enable us to explain to them the ‘Reason’ we have for our hope. Guide us in the study of Your Word, our thoughts, and our actions. All glory to You. In Jesus’ mighty name we pray. Amen.

Are we living according to the tradition of men, rather than living according to Christ? Why? Or, do our lives reveal that we are Christians, that we are different from the world?

While reading a passage of Scripture and searching through a few commentaries I’ve found the following very interesting:

“It may be safely asserted, that the grand distinction, which divided all mankind into Jews and Gentiles, was not only religious, but also social. However near the cities of the heathen to those of Israel, however frequent and close the intercourse between the two parties, no one could have entered a Jewish town or village without feeling, so to speak, in quite another world. The aspect of the streets, the building and arrangement of the houses, the municipal and religious rule, the manners and customs of the people, their habits and ways–above all, the family life, stood in marked contrast to what would be seen elsewhere. On every side there was evidence that religion here was not merely a creed, nor a set of observances, but that it pervaded every relationship, and dominated every phase of life.”

How do we make a difference in our social life? Do our actions and words tell others that we are people of the Word and not people of the world? What are our habits and ways revealing about our faith in Christ? Does what we believe dominate every area of our life? Why? Why not?

Who is Jesus to you? What’s different about you since you have been born from above?
