The Creation of Woman -
 Why Did God Bother?

It is not good (sufficient, satisfactory) that the man should be alone. ~Genesis 2:18 

creation of woman- young woman

What was God's real plan for the creation of woman? Couldn’t we have all just been men?

I don’t know if you can relate, but these are questions that often crossed my mind in years past.

In many societies across the world, it often seems like women get the short end of the proverbial stick. Even in Jesus' time, there was a Jewish prayer where men praised God that they were not a gentile, a dog, or a woman!

But, what was God's original plan? Why did He create us in the first place?

Why Did God Make You a Woman?

To Fix a Serious Problem
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.
-Genesis 2:18(Amplified)

Of course, I am NOT implying that Christian Single women have no place in God's plan. All women have a vital purpose as you will discover more and more throughout this course. But to understand our true intent, we must look at where the first thought of women appeared.

It is amazing to think that, in the entire story of creation, this is the only time that God says "It is not good."

creation of woman rocks and streamAnd the earth
brought forth grass,
and herb yielding seed
... and God saw that
it was good.-Genesis 1:12

And God made two great lights;
the greater light
to rule the day,
and the lesser light
to rule the night...
and God saw that
it was good. -Genesis 1:16-18

Genesis continues on describing the beauty and wonder of God calling all creation into being.

And, as they say, "it was all good!"

But, all of a sudden, there was trouble in paradise!

Something was not good.

It is not good (sufficient, satisfactory)
that the man should be alone.
Genesis 2:18

Enters you - Woman. The answer to the problem.
