The just shall live by his faith – Habakkuk 2:4.
This Scripture is repeated four times in the Bible, once in the Prophets and three times in the New Covenant. Faith is one of the virtues that thoroughly pleases GOD, or we may say one that really gets things done. The LORD Jesus demonstrably proved this point Himself time without number. He went on to say that if you believe all things are possible for you, i.e. nothing’s impossible for a man or woman of faith.
Faith is among the big three constants mentioned by Paul in 1 Corinthians 13:13. Faith is the evidence that we love GOD and trust Him with our lives. It’s through faith that we believe everything about Him and the Scriptures. It’s through faith we’ve been saved by His grace and are what we are. Thus we should practice to live by faith day to day, step by step. It’s by faith we prove that we love and trust GOD, and it’s by faith we prove His promises.
