God does practice birth control, but also gives conception -Ruth 4:13; Genesis 29:30,31; 30:22,23
    The decision rests with you and your personal relationship with God. If you choose to let God bless you with children, you may have a lot of them. If you choose to let God bless you with children when you're ready, by utilizing birth control to prevent conception, well that's your decision too, isn't it. God loves you anyway. But remember God always does what's in our best interests, so you don't have to be apprehensive in trusting Him -Romans 8:28. I mean you're trusting Him for eternal life, why not things pertaining to this life? "But what if I have twelve or twenty kids and lose my figure and go nuts trying to look after them all?" you may be asking. There are good natural methods of birth control. But, whatever. Choose that which you feel most comfortable with for your life. Go the route where you feel you can best be happy in your relationship with God. Remember He's the Father of spirits, not the Father of the flesh. He's concerned with spiritual things, and wants your physical life to reflect that which makes you happy.
   A good article on the subject by Debra Dykes:-"Is Artificial Birth Control Biblically Acceptable?

I've used birth control measures, however I now see things differently. Because of health reasons, maybe some women shouldn't get pregnant. Yet on the other hand, can God not take away health problems? See 'Healing'. And are there not things one could do to become healthier? You'll make the right decision for where you are in your spiritual growth at the time you have to make the decision. 

Some may ask: "If I choose birth control, what form of birth control is right?
    What are you, a legalist? God is the Father of spirits, not the flesh -Hebrews 12:9
    And Christ came to set us free; free of the Mosaic legalistic way of thinking that so embodied the Pharisees -John 8:32,36; Romans 8:2 (the law of sin & death is any 'law' you attach in your mind {Romans 14:23  ".....whatsoever if not of faith is sin" (if your not confident in something, don't do it]} that makes you feel that if you break the law you have set you've done wrong in God's eyes and need forgiveness or the death of Jesus to again be applied to you). That's 'worshipping'-(original Greek is 'attention to') God in vain -Matthew 15:9. Why?
     Why did He come to set us free? Hebrews 9:12,15 ".....having obtained eternal redemption for us" and Hebrews 9:25-28 "Nor yet that He should offer Himself often.....For then must He often have suffered since the foundation of the world. But now ONCE in the end of the world-(the first man Adam was at the beginning; the last man Adam {Jesus} came at the end -1Corinthians 15:45,47)-has He appeared to put sin away-(so you don't have to keep struggling trying to get yourself right with God; He FINISHED sin, once and for all and for everyone and for all time)-by the sacrifice of Himself......So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many......And for this cause He is the mediator of the New Testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the First Testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance." Hebrews 10:11,12,14 "But this man after He had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever sat down on the right hand of God. For by one offering He has perfected for ever them that are sanctified." Hebrews 10:26 ".....there remains no other sacrifice for sins."
    So quit trying to be 'religious' and just live from your heart what is the real you. Your sins have been atoned for. Forget trying to make up for that which is already defunct!
    Jesus Christ's sacrifice was once for all; once for all time; once for all people; once for all sins, past, present and future; your sins, my sins and everyone else's sins. 
    His sacrifice was just that great! God planned it that way: By one man, Adam, sin was passed onto all, so that likewise, by one man, Jesus Christ, righteousness could be imputed to all who believe--as a gift! No works required!!!
    If you want to know what He CONTINUALLY thinks of you: Colossians 1:22,23 "In the body of His flesh through death, to present YOU HOLY and UNBLAMEABLE and UNREPROVEABLE IN HIS  SIGHT! If you continue in the faith-(keep yourself up on God; study, think and listen inwardly -Psalms 4:4)-grounded and settled ....." 
2Corinthians 5:21 "For He-(the Father)-has made Him-(Jesus)-to be sin FOR US .....that WE might-(might is not in the original Greek)-be made the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD."
    Some of us need awakening to the knowledge that we are righteous in God's eyes -1Corinthians 15:34
    So, why worry over things that you may do, like choosing  jelly, condoms or maybe Natural Family Planning, the Billings method or some other natural method; maybe abstinence! Get real!
    Make your decisions about physical matters based upon what you know and when you have enough information to be comfortable with a decision. 

Forget worrying. Live in Christ! Be hot! Live now from where you are spiritually and improve on that. How? Spend quiet time thinking about the scriptures.
