The use of anthropomorphic language in relation to the God refers to using human language to communicate information about God in a way humans can understand. E.g., Psalm 34:15 says: “The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry.” Since God is a spirit (John 4:24), God doesn’t have ears and eyes but the use of that kind of language conveys that God is aware of and interested in the affairs of the righteous.
