The word believed is translated from the Hebrew word אמן | 'âman which means to build up or support; to foster as a parent or nurse; figuratively to render (or be) firm or faithful, to trust or believe, to be permanent or quiet; morally to be true or certain; once (in Isaiah 30:21) to go to the right hand: - hence assurance, believe, bring up, establish, + fail, be faithful (of long continuance, stedfast, sure, surely, trusty, verified), nurse, (-ing father), (put), trust, turn to the right.And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.
And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.(Genesis 15:5-6)
Faith means saying Amen when God has said something to you. Faith is always based on the word of God. "Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God’ (Rom.10:17).
We cannot have faith, if we do not listen to God. Abraham heard God first. Then he said “Amen”.
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the LORD Jesus Christ. (Philemon 1:3)
