Here, "God in heaven" is an exclamation, similar to "Oh my God". He's expressing his surprise. More literally, "God in heaven" refers to a God located in heaven. Alternatively, it could be used to address "God" formally in a prayer. Ex: God in heaven, Tony. Will you please shut up! Ex: God in heaven! I'm late for my interview.
