As Israel journeyed from Egypt to the Land of Canaan, the Lord provided everything for them, including a sign that he was always with them: 

Now on the day that the tabernacle was raised up, the cloud covered the tabernacle, the tent of the Testimony; from evening until morning it was above the tabernacle like the appearance of fire. So it was always: the cloud covered it by day, and the appearance of fire by night.

– Numbers 9.15–16 

While they did not see the Lord himself, he had made known to them that he was with them. Likewise, we have not seen the Lord, nor can we see him now, but he has promised that he will be with us until the end (Matthew 28.20).
