It took me very long to understand this as well.
You’re always told that God is a personal God, but it never resonates until you truly experience Him for yourself and understand. That He really is intimately acquainted with every part of our lives and our thoughts. Finding all the answers in the world will never compare to that feeling of knowing that you are truly so precious to Him.
When a stranger prays for you, and suddenly they tell you that God sees a certain part of your life or a certain emotion or a certain detail in your life that this person would never have been able to know unless God told him to say it. In that instant, you truly experience for yourself that God is real and He knows and He speaks to you and He’s so desperately reaching for you.
Or when you read the bible, asking God what the passage tells you about Him, and suddenly He gives you a verse that speaks straight to your heart, and you’re like, how is it possible that there’s a verse in a book that tells me EXACTLY what I need to hear, specific down to the detail? And you realise God really is in tune even with the things you try to hide from Him.
I think what I’m trying to say is, try seeking God Himself, instead of answers about who He is or how He’s like.
Talk to Him, rant, spend time, until finally, He talks back. And trust me, He will. You just have to listen hard enough.

I would honestly be so happy with something like this.
