Jehovah who saves cost

I wonder if you have encountered God as one who saves cost? Well, recently, I did. I am doing a research which is being funded by my supervisor and I needed a particular enzyme which could be obtained by Sigma-Aldrich but very expensive and sold in aliquots. Buying from Sigma-Aldrich was not cost effective because I would need a large quantity of the enzyme so I had to try to source it elsewhere. I found a company who was going to give me at a good price but it was not one of the companies registered with the school. For a new company to be registered with the school, a form which required a lot of information would be filled. As I discussed with the procurement officer, He said because of such personal information required, a number of companies are hesitant. In fact some do not respond once he sends the form. Some of such information were recently introduced. Well, a form was sent to the company and the guy it was sent to was nice enough to reply to say he was not going to give some of the information required.

Well, since the enzyme was important to me, I began to consider bypassing the school and it meant I would have to pay with my money. But God who knew my present financial situation went ahead of me. When I got to the procurement officer to ask for feedback from the company, he told me that the guy was not eager to fulfill the requirement before we could buy from him. However, he had arranged with a registered supplier to go buy from him and supply to us!

Believe me I was not expecting him to take such an initiative! Indeed it was beyond my expectation. As I thought of it, I realized that I have been saved some money.

Indeed He is the Lord who saves cost.
