Vaheguru Jee Kaa Khalsa Vaheguru Jee Kee Fateh

Please if Gursikhs can explain this shabad, im feeling rather confused right now. In Gurbani does it not say that all these devte are just creations of Vaheguru,not Vaheguru himself and that they have ego and want human life so they can get naam? The whole difference between us and hindus is Hindus believe the devte are Vaheguru's forms, etc. however this shabad to my stupid mind doesn't make sense.
I'm begging for help please.
Dhanvaad ji.
