I have come across some people who do not believe in God and when in total mess, they somehow call for help of God. May be when in deep difficulties, people falter, become weak and then tend to believe in God.
I have also come across people who are wonderful human beings in their deeds but they do not believe in God. It is their choice to believe or not.

Brother. Higher power and God are entirely different. Any human who can change your life for better n better equipped to do it with wealth and power are higher power. There are rituals like sycophancy to get ingratiated to them and derive advantage. They, with power and money would get you out of any difficult situations. I am sorry. You may be a believe in God as as a saviour. But I can't believe in a god who has less common sense than me. I know a powerful person could save you from any situation. I have no idea abot gods. Only spurious god man know it. Any mess you create can be solved if you are connected to a powerful man.

What will I get out of it?
That is the QN that rules majority of Humanity. This is because they are confined to MATERIAL LIFE. They dont see BEYOND matter. Even some of the religions preaches the same philosophy....if u do certain things u go Heaven....if do or dont do certain other things you go to Hell. This is a BEGGARY...... living in GREED for rewards and FEAR of punishment.
Now coming to ur QN.....such person pose as an atheist to put up an image that they are brave and intelligent. That image is his reward. But that is just his pretension, when he is challenged, his pretensions drop and he runs for escape...seek refuge under any roof... be it God or Devil.

People often boast of being atheist when in a better condition...
but the same person at times resorts to God's grace when in sheer trouble....and never hesitate to resort to superstitious activities to get relieved from that trouble.....even most educated ppl are not free from such trauma.....

Among the believers there are two kinds of people
(1) For those whom (as you have mentioned) God is a concept
(2) For those of whom God is a reality because He has chosen to reveal His existence to them
While the first kind keep struggling with the concept, the second type live a happy and contended life, (like a child) comforted with knowledge that he is loved and cared for by the Almighty
