Anglican Devotional 8 June 2024: God Is Aware, He Will Handle It!

The Daily Fountain Devotional of the Church Of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) 8 June 2024 – God Is Aware, He Will Handle It!

TOPIC: God Is Aware, He Will Handle It!

READ: Genesis 2:15-25 (NKJV)

  1. Then the LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it.
  2. And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat;
  3. “but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”
  4. And the LORD God said, “[It is] not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.”
  5. Out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought [them] to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature, that [was] its name.
  6. So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him.
  7. And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place.
  8. Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.
  9. And Adam said: “This [is] now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.”
  10. Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.
  11. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.


Our reading today reveals God’s care for the comfort of man. The Bible tells us that God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone”(verse 18). He knew that Adam was in need of a partner; a suitable helper. God saw what Adam could not see: He saw the need for a companion which Adam never realised. For Adam, all was well; nothing to worry about. It is also interesting to note that God proffered a solution to the identified problem – He made a woman to be Adam’s helper. He met Adam’s need and gave him joy. For the first time, Adam saw a human being like himself and confessed,”…this is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman because she was taken out of man” (verse 23).

Beloved, please calm down! God knows your needs; He is aware of your situation and He has heard your supplications. It is the devil’s lie that you will die in this condition; God never said so. Is it a challenge in your health, marriage, finance or even your ministry? Your heavenly Father knows about your pains, aspirations, failures, battles and whatever you are facing right now. He knows your needs in all areas of life (Matthew 6: 33b). Just calm down and allow God to handle it. You will be amazed at the result of God’s intervention. God is aware, please relax!

PRAYER: Lord, I thank You because you care for me.
