I dont think it is showing his love for god it is more showing how no matter what God thinks or his friends he is going to do what he want.

Although Thoreau was a spiritually enlightened individual, the poem expresses his need to fulfill his words though his actions. Also, to be happy with himself as well as please others. Lastly, he expresses that he is not ignorant to God's plan, but he is also not overratting his.... well, designs.
