Why is God invisible to us?

I look at creation, the ocean, galaxies far away, tiny molecules. There is PROOF of design everywhere in everything if we look deep enough. But why does God hide himself? This is the fun part and what I

And have made us kings and priests to our God; And we shall reign on the earth.”
Revelation 5:10 NKJV

It is God’s privilege to conceal things and the king’s privilege to discover them.
Proverbs 25:2 NLT

For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,
Romans 1:20 NKJV

But why conceal the truths of His creation? Why is it not plain to see for everyone?

The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things that are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.
Deuteronomy 29:29 ESV

Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;  And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:
Ephesians 3:8‭-‬9 KJV

God knew we would not believe, He has hidden Himself in creation so we will search, as we do all over the world. For the truth.

I have much more to say to you, but right now it would be more than you could understand. The Spirit shows what is true and will come and guide you into the full truth. The Spirit doesn’t speak on his own. He will tell you only what he has heard from me, and he will let you know what is going to happen.
John 16:12‭-‬13 CEV

“For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor?”
Romans 11:34 ESV

Behold, God is exalted in his power; who is a teacher like him? Who has prescribed for him his way, or who can say, ‘You have done wrong’?
Job 36:22‭-‬23 ESV

Consider this next time you see the stars, glorious sunset or the hills and valleys. Look at creation and consider a God who created it all!

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord . For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55:8‭-‬9 ESV
