Question of the Week:The government of God

As Christians we have comfort in how the Bible tells us that God will always provide. He know our needs. People often cite finances as one reason for postponing a pregnancy, either temporarily or permanently. Now what human "needs" are is a controversial topic in itself. But I want to focus on the topic of government intervention via programs such as welfare, food stamps, and WIC. Obviously there are abuses to state programs but that's not the exact direction of this post either.

Do you think God uses these programs as HIS way of providing for families? Should couples be able to take advantage of these kinds of programs when considering having another child or not?
