When God says, “It’s not good”, guess what?

Posted: August 25, 2011 in Faith, Kingdom of God

God created all the Heavens and the earth is six amazing days, at the end of the 6th day, after He created man in His own image, the “crown of His creation”, He looked down on all His work and said, “Wow, that is amazing!”, he then sat down and enjoyed all he had created.

Genesis 2 starts with the creation of a garden, known as Eden or Paradise.  At the center of that specific creation was a man named Adam.

I find it fascinating that man is both the crowning glory of God’s creation and the center of it.

With all of that said we read in Genesis 2:18:

Now the Lord God said, It is not good (sufficient, satisfactory) that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper meet (suitable, adapted, complementary) for him.

I have a problem with this and the problem is that Adam WAS NEVER ALONE. Adam had the most amazing relationship, unhindered by sin, with God. Yet just  God and Adam alone, in God’s own words, “is not good.”

Too many people have a mindset, “I love Jesus, but I don’t have to go to church, it’s just me and Jesus” God says, “It is not good!”
Here are some reasons why it is not good for man to be alone.

God said it

I love the old saying:

God said it, I believe it and that settles it.

No debate no reasoning it away, God said it is not good to be isolated and have a mindset ‘just me and Jesus’, that should be all we need, but here are a few more reasons.

Good as you are you have weaknesses

God in his wisdom created us to need others to compliment us. Paul uses the analogy of the human body and in 1 Cor 12:17 says, “If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling?” If the whole body consisted of an eye, it is a useless body and if the wholly body were an ear it is equally useless and so is the Christian who is out of fellowship.

We are called to flourish

When God created man he said be fruitful, and in Psalms we see how we become fruitful:

Those who are planted in the house of the LORD Shall flourish in the courts of our God (Psalms 92:13 NKJV).

God is into Exponential Power

It is to be noted that God is not the god of simple addition if one can defeat 1,000 then simple addition means two can beat 2,000 but look what God says:

(Leviticus 26:8 NKJV)  Five of you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight; your enemies shall fall by the sword before you.

(Deuteronomy 32:30 NKJV)  How could one chase a thousand, And two put ten thousand to flight, Unless their Rock had sold them, And the LORD had surrendered them?

That is exponential effectiveness!

So, if God says, “It’s not Good”, guess what, it’s not good!
