As-Salaam alaikum,
In a Hadith-Qudsi, Allah Ta'ala says:--

"I am as My Servant thinks I am, I am with him whenever he remembers Me:
If he thinks of Me, I think of him; if he mentoins Me in a gathering, I mention him
in a gathering even better than it.

If he draws near to Me a hand's span, I draw near to him in an arm's length;
If he draws to Me an arm's length, I draw closer to him by 2 arms length; and if
he comes to Me walking, I go to him running.'' (Bukhari and Muslim)

This Hadith tells us the speed at which Allah Ta'ala changes a person's reality as He remembers him. Because Allah has no need of travel, He does not have a body and isn't in creation, when He says ''I go to him running'', this refers to shaping man's perception of Him, meaning 'I shape his reality quickly', -- the more a person comes to Allah by remembering Him, the faster Allah changes his perception towards good.
Did you not hear the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said: IHSAN (human perfection) is to worship Allah as if you see Him, which is the highest form of worship. And in the Holy Qur'an:--

"He is with you wherever you are" (57:4)
"And We are nearer to him than his jagular vein'' (50:16).
