David C. Writes:

"The distinction that you make between things that occur normally and
that require invoking God for adequate description is biblical. Pharaoh's
magicians recognized the plagues as supernatural (Ex. 8:19), Mary (Lk.
1:34) and Joseph (Mt. 1:19) knew that virgins do not get pregnant
naturally, etc."

Yes, but passages like Psalm 104 speak of things that we would call
"natural" as no less a manifestion of God's action (sustaining in being,
perhaps) and intentions.
