Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? - Matthew 6:26
We do not know for certain what occurs within the brains of birds, whether they have some sort of intellectual acknowledgement of a creator God. There are those who hold animal life in high regard (or human life in low regard) and render us equivalent: We are just another animal, they say, evolved from some previous animal and lucky enough to be highly evolved and dominant in some respects.
The Bible makes it clear that animals and humans are not equivalent (Genesis 1:26-28). We are in the image of God and they are not. We are to rule over them, not they us. We are given to make use of them for food, clothing, servile labor, etc. and not they us. We are different; deliberately different.
Jesus did not say, "Look at the birds of the air and see how the universe provides for them.". Perhaps the birds are absolutely clueless as to how they come to be fed. Perhaps they consider it not at all or perhaps they attribute it wrongly. To stop anywhere short of ascribing all creation and provision to God is to reckon as does a beast. To pray to the universe or to attribute any of our provision to the Universe is to reckon as any other beast, at best. We are much better than they.
And yet this is exactly what we are told is the consequence of thinking overmuch of created things, of worshiping them above the Creator:
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. - Romans 18-25
Nebuchadnezzar's heart was transformed into the heart of a beast because he exalted Himself (a created thing) over the Lord God and he remained thus "till thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will." (Daniel 4:25).
If the universe provides anything, it does so because God rules over the universe as both creator and sustainer "for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.". It is a revelation of the wrath of God that man, created in His image and with understanding of Deity within them, when he exalts creation over the Creator, is given over to reckon as a beast, declaring "The Universe always aligns with your beliefs.".
