According to Kaivalya Upanishad:

He(Supreme Brahman) alone is all that was, and all that will be, the Eternal. Knowing Him, one transcends death. There is no other way to freedom.

We know Supreme Being is God. As stated below from Kaivalya Upanishad.

He is God, He is The Absolute, He is Heaven, He is Eternal, the Supreme, the Self-luminous, He alone is All, He is Breath, He is Time and Fire, He is the Moon.

If God alone is all that was,and all that will be , then isn't every being a God? Isn't every act an act of God ? Isn't every speech an speech of God?

Every being infact every thing is Brahman.

"You are the woman, You are the man, You are the boy, (and) You are the girl too. You are the old man tottering with a stick. Taking birth, You have Your faces everywhere."

(Svetasvatara Upanishad 4.3)

"You, indeed, are the blue bee; You indeed are the green parrot having red eyes; You indeed are possessed of lightning in Your womb. You indeed are the seasons and the seas. You indeed are without beginning; You exist as the Omnipresent, from whom have sprung all the worlds. "

(Svetasvatara Upanishad 4.4)

Krishna says in the Gita, chapter 9, verses 4-6 (Swami Nikhilananda translator):

By Me, in My unmanifested form, are all things in this universe pervaded. All beings exist in Me, but I do not exist in them.

And yet the beings do not dwell in Me--behold, that is My divine mystery. My Spirit, which is the support of all beings and the source of all things, does not dwell in them.

As the mighty wind blowing everywhere ever rests in the aksha, know that in the same manner all beings rest in Me.

Yes, everything is God. Even right now, in whatever condition you are, in this condition also You are God. Supreme Shiva involves in five activities -

  1. Emanation (Srishti).
  2. Re- Absorption (SamhAra).
  3. Concealment (Vilaye).
  4. Maintenance (Sthiti).
  5. Grace (Anugrah).

Now, Even after forgetting his real nature, Lord Shiva in the form of Jiva keeps doing these 5 activities.

Even in this condition (of the empirical self), he (the individual) does the five krtyas (deeds) like Him (i.e. like Siva). Pratyabhijna Hridyam Sutra 10.

Commentary by AchArya KshemrAj: When the great Lord who is consciousness (lit. whose form is consciousness) entering into the sphere of the body, prana etc. on the occasion of the attention becoming external, makes objects like blue etc. appear in definite space, time etc. then with reference to appearance in definite space, time etc., it is His act of emanation (srastrta). With reference to the appearance of the objects in another space, time etc., it is His act of withdrawal or absorption (samhartrta). With reference to the actual (continuity of the) appearance of blue etc., it is His act of maintenance (sthdpakata). With reference to its appearance as different, it is His act of concealment (vilayakarita). With reference to the appearance of every thing as identical with the light (of consciousness), it is His act of grace (anugrahitrta). As to how the Lord is always the author of the fivefold act, I have extensively demonstrated in Spandasandoha. Thus this authorship of the fivefold act occurring within one's own personal experience, if pursued steadily with firm understanding, reveals the Lord's greatness to the devotee. Therefore, those who always ponder over this (fivefold act of the Lord), knowing the universe as an unfoldment of the essential nature (of consciousness), become liberated in this very life. This is what the (sacred) tradition maintains (ityamnatah).
