My daughter is in college. Her financial aid is not enough to cover the summer apartment rent fees. Instead, I am sending her money. The months I am trying to cover are for May, June and July. I have May and June paid for.
The issue- I told her to get a job just in case I don't cover everything. She says that God will figure things out, and everything will work out fine. She hasn't gotten a job yet. I got laid off last week and I am currently looking for a job. If I don't get hired soon, I will not have enough to cover her July rent.
How can I tell her that trusting in God does not mean to play dangerous or she'll get bitten (that God doesn't cover for bad judgement)?

How is trusting God for provision bad judgement??? Do you think God is unable/unwilling to provide for her? [anon]
Do you just sit there at home and wait for things to magically come from God or do you get out and make things happen? THAT is what OP is wanting to tell her daughter. In this case, her daughter should be filling out job applications and trusting that God will help her get the right one ... not sitting at home hoping the money will magically appear.

Trusting God had nothing to do with making good choices for yourself. Stop giving her money you don't want or can't give, if she has to pay her rent she'll find a job.
