A very famous person has defined faith as a state of mind which can be induced or created through repeated affirmations or instructions to the subconscious mind through the principle of autosuggestion. Another definition or description of faith, which is given in the Bible is “faith is that which comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.”
An analysis of both definitions will find one common denominator. They both refer to, or imply that in order for one to have faith, that person must continue to do something. i.e. it is a continuous process: “repeated affirmations or instructions,” and “comes by hearing.” Note that the statement said “comes by hearing,” it didn’t say “when you hear.”
When the bible says to hear and continuously hear the word of God, that corresponds to the other definition of faith that says to repeatedly affirm or instruct your subconscious mind. Both definitions also show or imply the role the individual plays in having faith. You (and no one else) are the one who must continuously hear, so also you are the one who must repeatedly instruct your subconscious mind.
