Are We A Wind-Up Toy?

Does God really wind up the universe and then let it play out like a spring-loaded toy, as some have said?  Or is He actively involved in our daily lives?  Check out this passage:

“In those days the LORD began to reduce the size of Israel. Hazael overpowered the Israelites throughout their territory east of the Jordan in all the land of Gilead (the region of Gad, Reuben and Manasseh), from Aroer by the Arnon Gorge through Gilead to Bashan.”  — 2 Kings 10:32-33

God gets involved, even to the point of determining the sizes of nations.  There are many ways He could accomplish such a task.  And note that He brings about a reduction in the nation’s size at the same time that their evil nature is growing worse.
