What is Faith?
I take FAITH to be a full practical conviction about the WILLINGNESS and the ABILITY of God to DO what He promises in His WORD.
Practical Conviction: It informs and guides all that we do,we live convinced that WE ARE who He says we are, and that WE HAVE what He says we have, that WE CAN DO what he says we can do.
Beyond the tangible: Even when we cannot see it, we are still convinced, because we know He is not a LIAR (Numbers 23:19), we take His word to be TRUE, and though we can see it, we BELIEVE, that why FAITH is assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1).
God is not human that He should lie,
not a human being that he should change His mind.
Does He speak and not act?
Does He promise and not fulfill?
(Numbers 23:19, NIV)
