"And if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him."1 John 5:15 "Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and He saveth them out of their distresses. He sent His Word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. Oh that men would praise the LORD for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men!" Ps 107:19-21
According as His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 2 Peter 1:3,4
The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: 2 Peter 2:9

Faith in God then, is having the kind of trust and confidence in God and in Christ that leads you to commit your whole soul to Him as Saviour (Justifier, Cleanser, Healer, Deliverer) and Lord (Master, King).
The NIV translation says, "Faith is being sure of what we hope for, and certain of what we do not see."
Romans 8:24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all.Who hopes for what he already has?
2 Corinthians 4:18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen.For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal ...
