"Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears our burden, the God who is our salvation. God is to us a God of deliverances; and to God, the Lord belong escapes from death." (Psalm 68:20-21)
God is not changed by our thoughts. He is who He is regardless of our beliefs. The atheist does not affect the reality of God, nor the agnostic or unbelieving.
But what are you experiencing of God? How much of Him are you tasting? What are you able to tell others about God? Adrian Rogers said, “I don’t know how much of God you have, but I can tell you this, you have all you want.”
David drank deeply of the riches of God. He came daily, hourly to the Lord for help and comfort, strength and protection, and always found His Father sufficient. He came in Psalm 68 amid great turmoil expressing some of what He knew of God.
To David, the Lord was One who "daily bears our burden and "who is our salvation. God "TO US" is a God of deliverances," David sang. He was experiencing this as He turned in trust and cast his burdens upon the Lord.
You can carry your burdens yourself. You have some right now. You will have days of small, multiple burdens and great, overwhelming burdens. Who carries those? Who bears the weight of them? For David, the burden bearer was God. He offloaded them to shoulders far bigger than His. And God (who is always faithful) delivered him, over and over again. In fact, every day.
How much of God are you experiencing today? You can have all you want.

When you’re lifted up in pride or bowed down in discouragement, look at the stars. Every bright light reminds us that He is God and there is no other. The One who made the stars and knows them by name, made you. And you are of infinite worth to our Sovereign Creator.
“He made the stars also.”
