FAITH

Habakkuk 2:4 Behold, his soul [which] is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.

Acts 13:8 But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith.

Matthew 6:25 {Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?} {Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?} {Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?} {And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:} {And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.} {Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, [shall he] not much more [clothe] you, O ye of little faith?} {Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?} {(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.} {But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.}

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
