Genesis 2:18: It is not good that the man should be alone

Posted by Ez1 Realty on May 23, 2012


Genesis 2:18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

 

After God formed man from the dust of the earth with His own hands, God personally planted a garden, presented it to Adam, and gave him the job of tending it. God gave Adam everything he needed and could possible desire. As God watched the reaction on Adam’s face gazing at all the wonders around him, God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone.”

 

Genesis 2:19-20 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. (20) And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.

 

Did God forget to create a mate for Adam, or does this sequence serve a purpose? What is the spiritual lesson in God’s progression through creation?

 

The Bible goes back to remind us, God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air. Now a new detail is added. God brings every living creature to Adam to name. This shows how every creature obeys God’s voice. Each of them patiently waited their turn to receive a new name from the lips of Adam.

 

Why did God have Adam name every creature before creating Eve? First God warned Adam about the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, then plants the garden of Eden, and now Adam names every creature before Eve appeared on the scene. Together these outlined Adam’s responsibility to Eve. The greatest gifts come with the highest degree of responsibility. Adam was responsible for telling Eve about the tree of knowledge of good and evil, and protect her from the curse of death. God also gave Adam and Eve a work to share in. Their mission and ministry was to tend God’s garden, which carried a deep spiritual meaning translated throughout scripture. Adam was also given the task of naming every creature, an experience He would soon share with his wife. God spoke every living creature into existence. Adam was the first to speak each name. It was a partnership forged by time and respect. God was giving Adam a lesson on forming a relationship. He was preparing Adam to meet his wife.
