Adam lived in the Garden of Eden, a literal paradise on earth. It was perfect in every sense. Adam and God had a great and close relationship and yet…
Even in the midst of a world without the stain of sin, God saw Adam and still wanted more for him.
“The Lᴏʀᴅ God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a companion for him who corresponds to him.”” – Genesis 2:18
Eve was created as a result of God’s love for Adam and His desire for Adam to have a companion, a helper, an “I’ve got your back,” ride or die type of partner. Someone made just for him, who would not only compliment Adam in a million different ways but would also help him complete the mission God had given him.
“Then the Lᴏʀᴅ God made a woman from the part he had taken out of the man, and be brought there to the man. Then the man said, “This one at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; this one will be called ‘woman’ for she was taken out of man.” – Genesis 2:22–23
What a gift God gave Adam! It’s like God saved His best gift of creation for last. You can almost hear the excitement in Adam’s voice when he spoke about Eve for the first time.
God knew the world needed women. Don’t you forget that. If no one has ever said this to you, let me be the first. You are wanted, valued, and loved. You are seen and cherished. God delighted in creating Eve for Adam, not as someone less than but as an equal, someone to stand by his side. Someone to partner with Adam to fulfill the mission God created for them to accomplish together, as a team.
God’s work of creation was not complete until He made Eve—until He made woman. Both God and Adam rejoiced when Eve was created.
Remember that truth the next time you feel inferior. Just as God delighted over Eve, He delights over you, too. Never forget that.
God’s eyes fill with love as He watches you use the unique gifts He has given you to make Him known. He rejoices over you as He sees your faith grow stronger day by day.
The world can twist the value of women, but that doesn’t mean God does. He sees all the beautiful women in the world and knows their remarkable value. Adam needs Eve and Eve needs Adam, and together they both need God.
Never forget, you are loved, seen, and cherished by God. God is glad that He made Eve, and He’s glad He made you!
