Bible: Faith = assurance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen.
Webster: Faith = complete trust or confidence in someone or something.
The bible was written by men, just like Webster's dictionary.
The power of faith is something that few really understand until they live it out. George Muller was one such person. Needed milk for his orphanage in China so that night he prayed for milk. the next morning a milk wagon on its way into the city broke down in front of his orphanage. Not wanting the milk to go to waste the man gave the milk to the orphanage. the chances of a milk wagon breaking down right in front of the orphanage to the answer of a prayer is said to have been 1 with 40,000 zeros after it.
Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Faith is a power,it is full belief that what is asked for will take place but not just in or on anything it is only by "Faith in God". Have faith in God is what Jesus said. He didn't say have faith in the system, the nation, the world, the Devil he said, "Have faith in God".
Mr 11:12-14; 19-24 And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry: And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet. And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it. . . . And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine. And when even was come, he went out of the city. And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away. And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
