In Daniel

We see a sharp distinction between a distant God in the visions who has simply prescribed all in advancements verses a God who is involved in everyday life in the narrative stories.

It is an interesting difference to note.

I think all through out history we see this and sometimes in our own life we feel this. Times of distance and times of intimacy with God. Out personal God, the Creator, Sustainor, King and Friend.

It is a topic worth pursuing more in thought and in philosophy and Theology.
