If God is real then why isn’t he presenting us with any evidence of his existence?

This is a test to see if mankind and follow with blind faith. We are his sheep and his is our Shepherd. You must trust him. If there was physical proof then it would not be a test.

Well, tell us what YOU suppose 'evidence' would amount to (which might explain why you haven't yet noticed it.) Some of us have noticed the evidence, you see. Indeed, a few billion people over the centuries have noticed it. Maybe you're just looking for the wrong thing? Or in the wrong places? Would you be open to considering something as 'evidence' that had never crossed your mind before? If so, there's a chance you are sincerely wanting to know.

People know God exists, but choose to dismiss this knowledge as irrelevant.
So He dismisses them as irrelevant.
By wickedness they forcibly suppress the truth. Because what may be known about God is plain to them for He has made this plain to them; His invisible qualities: His eternal power and divine nature are clearly seen through what has been made, so they have no excuse. The skies declare the glory of God. The firmament speaks of His handiwork. Nature speaks: it is God's 'other' Bible. So although they know God, they neither glorify Him as God nor do they give thanks to Him. Their thinking, futile; their foolish hearts, darkened. Claiming to be wise, but have become fools. Therefore God gave them over to the desires of their hearts: to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator of all things — who is forever praised. Amen.

"What is Truth?" Almost 2000 years ago, Truth was put on trial and judged by people who were devoted to lies. "Sounds familiar, right?" Yes, and it is still happening today. Infidels, cults, rebels and atheists are creatures exactly like us, they have the same intuitions, moral and spiritual faculties, and the same rational and religious tendencies. They differ not one whit from us in their original make-up (though most will deny it); just like Caiaphas (the High Priest) who declared the Truth guilty because the Truth claimed to be God in the flesh---they not only condemn God, but also themselves. Why this wilful ignorance? Because confusion has reigned in their ranks ever since.
What is the pinnacle of folly again? "For man to sin against his own nature and identity and remain ignorant of what he ought to know and should know about God." He is so adamant that he originated from an explosion, that he's still in a fog since the accident. But wait, there's more... While claiming to know nothing, he claims to know everything about God, so as to dogmatically state His inability to reveal Himself to His creatures... Give us a break!
God appeals directly to the soul---Yeah, TRUTH speaks to the SOUL for the soul already believes that He exists.
"Now hear this, O foolish and senseless people, who have eyes but do not see, who have ears but do not hear" [Jeremiah 5:21]. The proof of God is everywhere and so clear that no-one can plead ignorance; it has been so often presented that they cannot allege that they had no opportunity of knowing it. [Romans 1:20]; [Genesis 1:1]; [Psalm 19:1].

He does, some just ignore it. The very concept of God disturbs them. Denial is their only coping mechanism.
Romans 1:18-22 — But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness. They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools.

He does. He just set things up so that we would have to learn and grow in the process of obtaining the evidence for ourselves.

Not always good but by faith alone.

He did 4 B.C. - 30 A.D., did it do any good?

So you seriously believe that hundreds of millions of intelligent people all believe the same thing, to the point they are willing to die rather than deny it, without evidence?? Not too big on rational thinking, are you? Any rational person observing this reality would have to conclude that there MUST be clear evidence, even though they themselves have not yet discovered it.

Don't be churlish and foolish.
Why should He reveal Himself to those who do not want Him?
