God relates to the world…

Let us say that God relates to the world, or acts on or in the world, in four main ways: (1) God brings the world into existence; (2) God sustains or upholds the world in existence; (3) God acts through natural causes in the world; and (4) God acts miraculously or outside of natural causes in the world.

Stephen Davis, from In Defense of Miracles, p. 165
