God The Arranger
So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man's ribs and closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. (Genesis 2:21, 22)
God did not want his first creation "man" to be alone and so he decided to make a helper suitable for him. Anesthesia and surgery took many centuries to come in to our world, but here we see God putting the man in to a deep sleep and operating on him. Painless, blood less and suture less surgeries are being advertised these days but the Almighty was at work even at the beginning of all life, setting a trend that his human creations would eventually follow.
All comparisons with humans cease when we think of the final stage of creation of the first woman. God Almighty transformed the rib that he had taken from man in to a woman. Awesome is God, the Creator.
Finally he brought her to the man. God set up a family, arranging someone whom Adam could relate to and immediately we see Adam saying, "This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called 'woman, ' for she was taken out of man."(Genesis 2:23)
Even today, God arranges people and situations in our favor as we look unto him and call upon him faithfully.
