Could someone please explain to me why this is considered God's providential answer to prayer? I've heard many testimonies over the years how folks went to a doctor or hospital for treatment, racked up medical bills, and then asked that they be reduced or written off. When they are successful in not having to pay those bills, they 'praise the Lord' for supplying their need.
I'm not simply talking about someone working out a payment plan or some other kind of settlement with a hospital- I'm talking about chalking up such as God's provision. This sounds like a contradiction to me.
