This is a good answer. You are right, we often don’t recognize Him, and partly because we are looking for elaborate and exciting examples of His Presence. It does us good to reflect on our day everyday, and make an effort to see Him in the little things.
For example: Your running late to work and are annoyed, but because of that you avoid a huge accident at an intersection you usually go through on the way there.
Here is two experiences I had when in my 20’s.: I had to have surgery on both of these occasions, so of course my work. Guess what? Both times the store was robbed at gun point, and on one occasion hostages were taken. Lucky me, I was sick enough to be in the hospital, safe and sound.
We really don’t know why a lot of things happen, but we should never assume that they are not part of what God has planned to keep us safe. Even if we are annoyed at the delays, having to wait, not getting the job we think we want etc. God is active all the time. We just need to pay better attention.
