First of all, what you are asking for, isn't a what.

God isn't lost. He doesn't need to be found. He's not playing hide-and-seek with us.
However, since Adam ... we play hide-and-seek with God. Because we always want to hide everything we think is wrong with us or unacceptable to Him. When really, He loves to meet with us exactly where we are because He already loves us for who we are. No more and no less.
Jesus tells us that His Kingdom is AT HAND.
So stretch out your arm and look at your hand.
Where is it?
That's where God is.
The Bible says that His Word is NEAR US, so close we can breathe it in.
Not somewhere tucked away.
Not somewhere in a tower that we have to climb.
Not somewhere on another planet that we have to travel to.
God is I AM.
He is also IMMANUEL. Which means He is WITH US.
As close to you as your hand, as your next breath.
It's not a matter of going where God is.
It's a matter of letting God into where you are. Into your emptiness and lack so He can fill it with Himself.
When you let Him in, then you will have Shalom, because Jesus is the Prince of peace, and where He goes, His peace goes with Him. So if you have Him, you have Peace.
He who has the Son, has life. He who doesn't have the Son, doesn't have life. It's really pretty simple, actually.
Even so, come Lord Jesus!
