God is hidden and works in mysterious ways, though He is always present in us and around us.
The Vedic teacher explains this dilemma. (And this is experience of countless Yogi, in this creations as well as previous ones).
God made the universe for the souls as a place to live. The souls need bodies to live their 'karmas'. So God made them suns and planets etc. and
then made their bodies; and assigned His powers to put souls in these bodies and manage this Universe.
So God is acting in this Universe through His powers.
Humans can get close to God (getting closer to God is getting closer to truth) by effort. The system is called 'tapa' in Sanskrit. 'Tapa' gives
several powers to the seeker and these powers are necessary to get closer to the God.
