God's presence with us is not the same thing as we being in God's presence. God is every were, he is omnipresent. There is no place were he is not. Why would we need to travel or come into his presence if he is right here with us right now?”. Psa 139:7-8 (7)Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. Jer 23:23-24 (23) "Am I only a God who is nearby?" announces the LORD. "Am I not a God who is also far away? (24) Can anyone hide in secret places so that I can't see him?" announces the LORD. "Don't I fill heaven and earth?"announces the LORD. (NirV) How can God be near us and far away at the same time?
