Genesis 2:18 Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.”
Sometimes this verse speaks to me in different ways, depending on what I’m going through at the time. However, I always feel amazed at the fact that God saw an emptiness in man’s life and designed us to fill that space. We were made to be helpers, which is straight from God’s mouth. What does that mean? The Hebrew word ezer means helper and is also used to describe God as our helper in Psalm 115:9-11. Would we ever think of God as serving us because he is our ezer? Of course not. Because He is our helper; He is our support system and our partner.
