Seek good, and not evil,
that you may live;
and so the Lord, the God of hosts, will be with you,
as you have said.
Hate evil, and love good,
and establish justice in the gate;
it may be that the Lord, the God of hosts,
will be gracious to the remnant of Joseph.

Amos 5:14-15

Where do you go to look for God? Is he in the church building? By the graveside of a Christian? In the serenity and solitude of nature? Is he high above you, unreachable, in the sky? Is he nearby in a painting or a sculpture bearing his likeness?

God is among His people; the people who seek His will and do it. If you want to find God, seek the good you can do according to His commandments and He is already within you.
