‘I will make a helper suitable for him.’ Genesis 2:18 NIV

Adam lived in a perfect world, yet he was incomplete. So God created ‘a helper suitable for him.’ And since God made you with a core need for companionship, He can introduce you to the right person. But you must be willing to consult Him, follow His guidance, and wait for His timing.

That’s not always easy. Some of us find it easier to be unhappy than to be alone. Driven by unfulfilled longings, we make rash decisions that end up hurting us. It’s impossible to make a good decision when you’re motivated by the fear of being alone or of being rejected. There’s nothing wrong with feeling the need to be needed by another person, or to share your life with someone. Don’t let anyone convince you that your need to love and be loved is a weakness. God created man to ‘multiply’, and it takes two to do that.

We are incomplete without one another. However our fear of vulnerability, of exposing our inner self to another person, makes us act as if we don’t need anyone. But God’s Word says we do. Not only that, throughout Scripture, He introduced people to one another. So pray and believe that God has someone ‘suitable’ for you; someone who fits where you are and will fit where you’re going. When you find the person God has in mind for you, you’ll discover strengths and gifts in yourself you never knew existed.
