The Bible says: Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.That means if we diligently study the Word of God we can be sure that our souls are enriched and thus extend our earthly lives.(1Kings 3:14)
As we read the book o Genesis the first chapter we see how the Lord did His work of creating the world in 6 days, and on the seventh day He ended all His works and rest, and blessed that day to show that everything was completely done,
Also, if you read again the second chapter you will see how the Lord gives Adam the instructions of how to live in the garden, he also brought him all the animals to name them, and he did so, Therefore the life of Adam and all of his creatures went on that way for quite a while.Until one day God looked at Adam and said to himself ‘it is not good this man to live alone’
We read it from..
Genesis 2:18 (KJV)
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.
Just imagine someone saying “It is not good“, what does it signify?, it is clear that he had noticed some shortcomings, and need to make some improvement so that to get things going well as he wants.
So it was with God, though he had already created a woman in his mind for a long time, Genesis 1: 27-28 confirms it, the woman was already created before the creation itself begun, but God allowed her not to be there as if he forgot her., So that he could pass this message titled “ IT IS NOT GOOD”, to us to teach us something.
Notice, A woman came to creation later,After Life has been going on for a space of time probably 1 or 10 or 100 years later.
Now Why did God do it? He did it because he was teaching us that he is much interested with improvements, Yes his improvements which are of great benefit to us today, try to imagine how this world would be without women, how would it be without the loving of sister, where would you taste the love of a wife today, what kind of man would you be?., No animal, no bird, no sea creature would give you a sweet confort as a woman could today?..Life would be boring as any other planet up there.
That is why we thank God for giving us this great gift, but that is all due to some improvements he made, if God said I had finished my creation, and on the 7th day I was relaxed, what we see today would not be into existance.
In the same way God expects us to make changes in our Christian lives, in our ministry of building the kingdom of heaven, not to be contented by saying everything is okay … If God who cannot be wrong improved his works, how much more are we supposed to be improve ourselves..Why be content with the same christian life that you had lived 10 years ago.?
The work of God is falling asleep, the church’s daily structures are collapsing, why not say this Is not right let me donate my money, or my energy to fix them, or my mental experience to the builders to accomplish that structure of the church … God wants us to think that way. Who knows by doing that act you would bring thousands of soul to Christ?
If you feel you have been saved and still you are living in the same situation for a long time without showing no signs of improving in your prayer line, or ability to share the gospel with others, you don’t fast, Know that you are out of the purpose of God which you were supposed to be., if we always see everything is just well around us, then we are deceiving ourselves.
It is my prayer that you and I,will begin to learn to say this word IT IS NOT GOOD, in almost every aspect of our Christian lives, Iam sure we will certainly make big changes not only in our lives but also in our ministries.
