“So the Lord God caused Adam to fall into a deep sleep.
He took one of Adam’s ribs and…
The Lord God made a woman from the rib and brought her to Adam.”
What intrigues me most about this miracle is WHEN God did it…while Adam was sleeping. In that state, Adam could not stress, he could not tell God how to do it, and neither could he complain that the job was taking too long. Adam was asleep, and who put him to sleep? God!
He had a beautiful surprise planned for Adam. And that miracle God formed from Adam’s rib was given the ability to produce even more miracles! When Adam awoke, there was Eve, the mother of all living, standing before him, created while he was sleeping!
I wonder how long God waits to perform a miracle in our lives, because we are too busy worrying or trying to make it happen ourselves. God wants us to rest and trust HIM. In fact, at times He may need to put us to sleep so He can do His work! I also wonder about the miracles that I pray for other people. I have sometimes even asked God to wake them up. But in reality, perhaps God is working miracles IN them even while I think they are sleeping!
Whatever the situation, I need to trust my God who never slumbers or sleeps, but Who is known for doing miracles while you are sleeping!
