Try any Christian creed for the answer to this question.

Are you baffled because you assume that Christians "invoke God" only when things don't "run smoothly"?

I am baffled. If everything is running smoothly according to your understanding, then why invoke God?

Because the following sentence:

"If God made the world and runs the world, then evolution _is_ God's plan",

seems to me to say beautifully clearly and in terms that could be
understood by an 8 year-old, precisely what "Theistic Evolution" means
to me. God's method of creation.
