But even within nature, God cannot be restricted. Like the author of a novel, God is entirely in charge of the plot. How can He be bound by rules and storylines that He devised? If God abruptly interrupts the “logic” of the story the result will surely be disruption and confusion. But this is the point of miracles, to disrupt the normal course of things and draw attention to something happening outside the narrative. If God made the universe He also made the laws of nature, and He can alter them on occasion if He chooses to.
