Hebrews 11:1 tells us exactly what faith is.
“Now faith is the substance of things hope for; the evidence of things not seen.” (KJV)
To further that let’s hop down to verse 3.
“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. ” (KJV)
This brings us all the way back to Genesis 1:1
In order to have faith we need to know what it is. Not just know it but know what God considers faith. Memorize this scripture if anyone ever asks you what is faith you give them exactly what God views as faith.
