If we pass to the New Testament, we shall there also find this Argument used. From the Fabrick of the World St. Paul proves to the Men of Lystra, that there is a God, a Living God, in Contra distinction to the Gentile Gods, or Idols rather. From the making of Heaven and Earth, the Sea and all things that are therein, he argues the Existence of an All-sufficient and Self-subsistent Being, Acts 14.15.

And again, Rom. 1.20. The invisible things of God from (i. e. ever since) the Creation of the World are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal Power and Godhead, even those Invisible things are clearly manifested by those Visible Works that he hath wrought. Or perhaps the meaning … may be from the Consideration of the Creation, from this alone the invisible things of the Deity, viz. his Power, Wisdom and Bounty are seen and proved.

For the reference, see John Edwards on the New Testament and natural theology.
