Gods are how non-too-bright man tries to manipulate the universe.
God is how a particular non-too-bright (or honest) culture justifies itself.
God didn’t give America to these savages;
God gave it to the King of Spain (or France, or England)
and therefore to me, his conquistador (or hero, or pirate)!
God didn’t give America to these disgusting, contemptible people;
he gave it to me, P. Lorillard & Co,
and therefore to me, their executive
(Their President, their blah blah blah.)
Note the lower (or upper) case letters.
Note further: the above is true but has nothing to do with the truth (or falsehood) of whether or not there is an actual this or that god existing within (or without) the cosmos. Neither has it anything to do with whether his name is Jehovah, Jahweh, Mars, or Mary.
