God created human beings on the 6th day of creation. He created all other living things and non-living things during the first 5 days. It’s absolutely amazing to see how God created everything – The SUN, the MOON, the STARS, SEAS, MOUNTAINS, BIRDS, ANIMALS. It was awesome!
Heavens and the skies display the splendour of God (Psalm 19:1)
Guess what? It all came into existence just by His words. Every word uttered by God is powerful enough to create something out of nothing.
Here is another article which was written on the first week of creation.
On the 6th day, God contemplated on the creation of human beings after all the other work was done. Thereafter He focused on His Master Piece. Yes, YOU, God designed you, not with mere words, but with his own hands.
Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. Gen 2:7
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139: 14
If you think that you are not good-looking or even not worth to live, remember! God will never make a mistake, because He is Almighty. He has created you with a GREAT purpose in mind. Therefore strive to never give up on yourself, because God has not given up on you.
The story of creation does not end here.
God felt creation was not complete!
What could it have been?
And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an HELP MEET for him. Gen 2: 18
God saw that man was alone! Yeah, some loneliness which has to be MET. He needed a HELP MEET suitable for him as God gave man a responsibility of taking care of Garden Eden.
Hence, the creation of WOMAN.
Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. Gen 2: 22
God saw that this pair was beautiful, and He really enjoyed watching them being together.
That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh. Gen 2: 24
Listen, O daughter, Consider and incline your ear; Forget your own people also, and your father’s house; So the King will greatly desire your beauty Psalm 45: 10, 11
This marked the existence of the first couple which was purely the idea of God, the union of man and woman, that until today remains a shadow of the future event of the marriage of the Lamb (Jesus Christ) to the Church.
A glimpse into my past
When I was a child, meditating on the story of creation, dreams of the day when I would start my life with a woman, whom God will bring to me, pondered in my mind. Thoughts of a joyful married life and family built on the foundation of values and principles of God remained dreams. Keeping this in mind, and walking with the Lord, He taught me many things, through observations from lives of other families, which I still have not started to share in this blog.
Growing up as a teenager, I observed many youngsters quickly getting into relationships without much thoughts or prayers and eventually losing focus from priorities. These two remained as lessons for me. The Word of God and advises from elders and mentors led me down the path of rightly choosing a life partner.
Yet, there were times when my faith started to waver, while worrying about finding the right life partner. At times like this, I was always reminded of a quote that was mentioned during a conversation with a friend, which reads
“When you are busy doing the Lord’s work in your single hood days, God will bring the right person who is the HELP MEET for you”
This instantly inspired me to trust in God to find my HELP MEET and was reminded the following verse
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3: 5,6
This is when the Holy Spirit taught me a few important principles on effectively utilising one’s single-hood days.
Therefore, I decided to focus more on the Lord’s work.
The end to my single-hood
In a nutshell, in His time, he brought her to me. Couldn’t be more grateful to God for His never-ending faithfulness. He is never late but always on time, unlike what we think.
He who finds a wife finds a good thing, And obtains favor from the Lord Prov 18: 22
Yes, indeed, I received this favour from the Lord. I am blessed and happy to share this good news with you. I got married to ‘her’ on the 20th December 2018, whom the Lord gave me as the HELP MEET for my life.
Needless to say, as we keep His Kingdom and His righteousness our first priority, He will add everything that we possibly need and more than what we deserve to our lives.
Therefore my dear brothers and sisters, I assure you that your wait on the Lord is worth every minute.
As right now, I enjoy with my wife, the love, joy and peace that Christ has given us. We as a family believe that Christ being the head and foundation of our home, He will teach and lead us in the days to come.
We are more than happy to share with you our findings and learnings from the Lord. Don’t miss it.
