So, you are wandering what faither really is, are't you? The bible says in Hebrews that faith is "the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen." I will not argue with that at all.
My friends, simply out, "You gotta see it, before you see it, or you never will see it." Karen Clark Sheard couldn't have put it any better. Faith is trusting God and knowing that what you prayed for has and will happen dispite what the current situation may look like.
If you are waiting on a job, believe that you are working. Dress the part and even learn the language of the job.
If you are believing God to help you get out of debt, believe that you are financially free. Those who are financially free work manage their finances wisely. They pay their bills on time and live within their means.
If you are believing God for financial aid to receive a higher education, trust God. He will provide for you, whether it is through scholarships, grants, or loans. Loans are great to have for a number of reasons. The number one benefit for loans is that is helps you establish a relationship with bankers and strength your credit score (as you make your payments on time).
Faith is believing in the NOW. Hebrews says "Now Faith..." We are not talking about later. You must believe you have what you asked for now. My brother and my sister, I come in agreement with you now that what you are asking for is already done, In JESUS NAME!!!
