Do you know what the bible says about how much God knows about you personally and how much He really loves you? Ever given it any thought?

In GREEK, the "word family" which comes into English as "faith" has both noun and verb forms. In other words, "I BELIEVE" and "I HAVE BELIEF." (Faith and belief are the same Greek word.) As a verb, it occurs in the Greek New Testament 217 times. As a noun, it is used 227 times.In the Old Testament, the Hebrew word "faithful" occurs 49 times. A different word, "break faith," occurs 35 times.This gives us an original language total of 528. There are a couple other words that "faith" might be used as part of the English translation, but they would only account for a handful of instances of the English form.Differences in the number of occurrences as you cross languages are usually due to the use of synonyms (like belief) and do not necessarily mean something is "wrong" with a given translation. Faith, faithful, and faithfulness are all related and may be rendered interchangeably in certain contexts. To "have faith" is essentially the same as "being faithful" or "showing faithfulness" or even "NOT breaking faith." It just depends on what English phrase the translators believe best represents or relates the original language idea.

The word 'faith' occurs 270 times in the NIV. This number does not include other words like faithful, faithfully or faithfulness. Faith in God is not taking a blind step into an unknown darkness; it is taking a safe step into a well-lit room. In other words, faith is not a blind leap into the dark; it is a sure and confident leap into the arms of God... The safest place to be. Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see (Heb. 11:1). The amazing reward for such faith in the unseen is to see the unseen. Faith is a present and continuing reality, not simply a virtue sometimes practiced in antiquity. It is a living thing, a way of life. There are realities for which we have no material evidence, though they are not the less real for that. Faith enables us to know that they exist and, while we have no certainty apart from faith, faith does give us genuine certainty. Faith is the basis, the substructure of all that the Christian life means, all that the Christian hopes for.
