According to Hebrews 11:1, ..Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”
Abraham is called the father of faith because he demonstrated a great deal of faith in his walk with God. It can be seen in this Bible quotation below, Genesis 12:1.
Now the Lord had said to Abram: “Get out of your country,From your family And from your father’s house, To a land that l will show you “.

Abram turned from vain idols to walk with the Lord, and all of this was by God’s grace. The hearing of the Word creates faith (John 5:24 and Rom 10:17).

4. You are not afraid of what others may say or do. (Heb 11:30).
True Faith is not in a hurry and is ever willing to wait as can be seen in Isaiah 28:16)
“…..he that believeth shall not make haste”.
Hebrews 6:12 says :
“….who through faith and patience inherit the promise s”.
