For jews that believe Maimonides: Why does the Tanakh emphasize the sky (heaven)?

I agree with Maimonides that the Tanakh teaches
1) That G-d is equally everywhere. Up in space, underneath the ground, etc.
2) There is no “heaven” like in Christianity, (where G-d lives in the clouds, and dead “souls” go when they die)(but rather that the afterlife is only after a physical resurrection, and that it takes place on earth)

With that in mind, why does the Tanakh keep emphasizing the sky when referring to G-d?
