[The Glory Unveiled]
The LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” ( Genesis 2:18 )
The verse of scripture for our meditation today is usually used in the context of marriage and purpose. But today we want to look at it from a different revelational dimension and perspective. We would realize from the opening statement that it was not the man who said “it is not good for me to be alone.” It was God Almighty who said that, to mean that even the man didn’t realize that his ‘singleness’ was not good for him. It also means that he didn’t really feel any want or need for what he would later have. Here’s the hidden code; when we live in the presence of God, we would know no wants or needs. God would provide everything we need and don’t even know we need. It’s like the software of a device that is set to automatically update itself to current needs for optimum functions. In the confines of God’s presence, it is God who does the providing. God would look for needs and meet them Himself. In another place it says be still and know that I am God (Psalm 46:10). In His presence we only need to be still and see the sovereignty of God. Just as the first man, Adam didn’t have to complain to God to have what he needed but didn’t even recognize, in the presence of God, we would have no needs and wants because God would take care of everything that is under His care. So the question is, are you in the ICU (intensive care unit) of God?
Prayer_Bead: Sovereign Lord, Jehovah Jireh, thank you for your love and care. Keep me in the shadow of your wings.
