FAITH - (Hebrew Strong’s #530 emunah) an action-oriented word meaning “support.” Western concept of faith places the action on the one you have faith in, such as “faith in God.” But the Hebrew word FAITH places the action on the one who “supports God.” It is not a knowing that God will act, but rather I will do what I can to support God.
This idea of support for the word FAITH can be seen in Exodus 17:12 - But Moses’ hands grew weary; so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat upon it, and Aaron and Hur held up his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side; so his hands were steady (faith) until the going down of the sun.
Behold, he whose soul is not upright in him shall fail, but the righteous shall live by his faith. (Habakkuk 2:4-ASV)
But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways. (James 1:6-8)
Faith is put to work by what we say, and what we do, and every time you say, ‘I seem to be getting a terrible headache,” then you’ve got one. Every time you say, “I’ve got a terrible backache”, then you’ll get one.
By FAITH, Jesus is the healer.
