No, living by faith is not something that only certain people do in special circumstances; it is the way we should all be living. In fact, it is the way the Lord has commanded us to live. “The just shall live by faith,” says the Word. Don’t you think it is time you learned what faith is and how to obtain it, so that you can start living by it?
Faith is the noun from the Greek verb ‘pisteuo’, which is usually translated as ‘believe’. It means to be fully convinced of something – to know without any doubts. So if you have doubts, then you are not believing or exercising faith. Anything that does not give you the total assurance of God’s provision and answers to your prayer is not faith at all. It is simply very strong hope at the best. And if you think that living that way is going to bring results, then you are going to fall flat on your face.
