Faith is refusing to be the slave of circumstance, by looking, not to the visible, but to the invisible.
By his faith, the righteous is victor at all times; even within the worst trials, he is able to worship, to abound in praises, precisely and above all when things are bad, and this is priceless in the eyes of God.
"Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen." (Hebrews 11:1)
