“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
In the beginning of time, the scriptures tell us that God created the body of the man named Adam from dirt. Then God breathed His breath into Adam’s nostrils, which gave Adam a mind, a will, and emotions. (Genesis 2:7). Deliberately, God created the man first. He had a specific purpose for Adam. He had a vision for the man to accomplish. God had a plan for His man.
The same is true today.
From the Beginning
God has a vision for men. A particular purpose specifically designed for men. Vision is a preferred future from God for your life. God’s vision for your life is more significant than you can even imagine. His vision for your life will motivate you and compel you to do something. God has deposited His vision on the inside of you, and it is up to you to discover it. God knew that you could not carry out His plan by yourself. A clear vision from God can never be accomplished alone. When the vision is conceived, the vision will require assistance for it to be executed. You cannot perform it alone, but I bet you already know that.
So God came up with a great idea.
He made a woman!
Think about this. God has such a magnificent plan for your life, and He knew that you could not fulfill that plan by yourself. So God did the next best thing that He could do. He gave you a wife! Your wife is designed by God to help you achieve your entire God-given goals.
Hey man! You need your wife. In the literal sense of the word need.
The worth of your wife
Currently inside of your wife is the willingness and ability to assist you. Your wife is there to provide for whatever is necessary to accomplish the vision. She is there to help you. In the Book of Proverbs, which is also one of the wisdom books, the word wisdom is referred to as a she. I do not think that is a coincidence. When you asked your wife to marry you, she came to you with the necessary internal equipment to provide support for the furtherance of your vision from God. A good wife will study you. She will feel what you feel. She will know your vision as good as you because your vision will also be her vision. Your wife is full of intuition and insight. She is intelligent. She sees things differently. Let your wife help you. By the way, do you know who else in scripture is called a helper? That’s right, the Holy Spirit. (John 16:7)
Question 1: Have you been undervaluing your spouse? Have you not been serving her? Lay down pride and sacrifice for someone who is willing to sacrifice for you.
Question 2: Is it possible that the solutions that you seek are found in your wife? How can you better work with your spouse to achieve the purposes of God set out for us?
Challenge: Trust God in His plan for your life, thank God for providing the necessary assistance and help to fulfill your life’s purpose and never forget that your wife isn’t merely here to serve you, you’re here to serve her as well.
