What is Faith?
Faith is the assurance that the things revealed and promised in the Word are true, even though unseen, and gives the believer a conviction that what he expects in faith, will come to pass.
God is not man The ways of God are not the ways of man. It is only God who knows our end from our beginning. The man unfortunately can only live by faith. Even to foretell what the next day will look like, man is only left but to imagine.
Faith is the strong belief in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual conviction rather than proof. For Christians, it is a complete trust or confidence in someone or something who is supreme and that is God.
Faith is the substance or assurance of things we hope for, but have not yet received. faith (confidence, belief, trust) is also our evidence of that which is not seen. As humans to practically live by faith is a prerequisite to conform with our trust and reliance on our ultimate creator.
“Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.”― J.R.R. Tolkien,
Living A Life Of Faith.
While is it difficult to completely trust someone we even know, trusting God is even more difficult especially when we depend only on assurance either by his words or revelation.
If we have to be honest, one can assert that having faith in another is one of the most difficult task to perform. Those who trust God in the Bible Abraham is best known for the depth of his faith.
In the book of Genesis he obeys unquestioningly the commands of God and is ready to follow God’s order to sacrifice Isaac, a test of his faith, though in the end God substitutes a ram for his son. This is a child who came by a promise which many would have given up while waiting.
However, he waited and trusted God and the words of the Lord came to pass. Now that same child is to be slaughtered for sacrificed as damanded by God. Of intrigue is the fact that Abraham had not even been told if a miracle would take place.
All he had with him was the thought of killing his son and the assurance, confidence, and trust that it was practically impossible for God to leave him halfway.
Now that’s faith. It still was faith that motivated Abraham to obey God’s call and leave his family to discover the territory he was destined to inherit from God. It doesn’t matter how difficult the situation is or hard as it might seem.

God does not fail. He does not lie because he is not a man. He watches carefully over his words so they manifest. With just faith like a mustard seed, a lot of our worries could be settled. Be rest assured God can never disappoint. It’s all about our faith.
Trust him and let him bother about fulfilling his promises. To live boldly amidst the challenges and difficulties of life, faith is required to keep us steadfast in our journey on earth while headed towards heaven.
