God finished everything that has to do with the earth and heavens. Man was put inside the garden and he was instructed about two trees in the garden. everything he would need for his sustainance was made available, he was not lacking anything per se. He was alone in the garden and he was happy. There was no complaint of any such.
Since man was created in image and likenes of God, he was like god and so God brought all the animals to him for two reasons:
Gen 2:15-23 KJV 15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. 18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. 19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
Adam was to review the animals and gave names to all the animals. But something cropped up from the naming:
Gen 2:-20-23 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
There was one final need of the man. Man was created a social animal, made to converse and relates. There was no help meet for man. Somebody who is his equal, whom he could relates with on the same pal. Even though he has the companion of God Almighty and the animals. God Almighty is far superior and the animals are too inferior, he need somebody at the same level with him.
How did God meet up this need of man?
Gen 2: 21-23 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; 22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. 23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
From the narration, God does not have to start from the scratch again to form a woman. All along Adam was carrying the woman or whatever will constitute the woman. So rather than God start doing a new thing, He used the available material to form the woman.
God used the rib already inside man to form the woman. Whenever there is need, God goes inside to solve that need.
The same is in creation of tree. The way God made them solved the problem of having needs. God put the seed inside the fruit of the tree. So when you hold a fruit, you have the seed and the tree.
Gen 1:11-12 KJV 11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
When Elisha asked the woman what she has, she said she did not have anything but a jar of oil. It was the oil that was used to solve her financial problem.
2Ki 4:2 KJV And Elisha said unto her, What shall I do for thee? tell me, what hast thou in the house? And she said, Thine handmaid hath not any thing in the house, save a pot of oil.
When there was need to feed 5000men, it was the bread and fish gotten from a boy that was used. Te same thing when 4000 men were to be fed.
Mat 14:17-21 KJV 17 And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes. 18 He said, Bring them hither to me. 19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. 20 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full. 21 And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children.
When they needed wine at the wedding in Cana. Jesus used what was available to meet the need. The water was already available before it was turned into wine.
Joh 2:6-8 KJV 6 And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece. 7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. 8 And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.
When God finished with the New Creation, he placed inside the new creation His own garden of Eden, that is He placed Himself in us by His Spirit and therefore He good give us everything we needs.
1Jn 3:24 KJV And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.
1Jn 4:13 KJV Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.
That is why Peter says His divine power has given to us everything that pertain to Godliness and life
2Pet 1:3 KJV According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
Paul saying the same thing in a different way:
Ephe 1:3 says we are blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places.
Eph 1:3 KJV Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
God has placed inside everyone of us the solution to our problems, we rather look outside rather than inside to solve our problem.
No man is born without talents, gifts, abilities, capabilities, even when people are born physically challenged, they still have other parts of the body developed with which many have outstanding things in life.
Sometime people says if i have certain amount of money, i can start the business, so i am looking for money for my business. I believe it is placing the cart before the horse.
In the Bible Wisdom is the principal thing.
Pro 4:7 KJV Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
If you have a very good idea, money yielding idea, the idea will generate finance for itself. It will attract investors or helpers. Nobody wants to put his money into wrong venture that will destroy his money or not sure whether he will recover the money back. This is contrary to what Economics teaches.
Rather than praying wrong prayers, we should pray that God will reveal to us what we are suppose to do.

In Act 3 Peter and John met a man born cripple at the gate. Peter said unto him that he had no silver and gold to give him but what he has. What did Peter had that he can give? It was the ability and power of Holy Ghost residing in him. After he spoke to the man, he was healed. Everyone of us born again and who have received baptism of Holy Ghost can do that anytime and anywhere.
You have the faith, the same faith in the Lord Jesus. The faith of God. Use it.
