FAITH is KNOWING That It WILL HAPPEN Before Knowing It Can Happen

I am a big fan of faith in action stories and the bible is full of them. The bible says that if we have FAITH as a grain of mustard seed (smallest of seeds), then nothing shall be impossible unto us.

Mark 4:30-32, Luke 13:18-20].
Jesus says, "if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, move from here to there, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you" [Matthew 17:20, Luke 17:6]. Jesus promises "it will move" [Matthew 17:20]; "it will be done" [Matthew 21:21]; it "shall come to pass" [Mark 11:23]; and it will "obey you" [Luke 17:6].
Jesus talks about the quantity of faith that it takes to do the impossible. Jesus compares mustard seeds to mountains. Jesus says that it only takes a mustard seed amount of faith [confidence] in the principles of the Kingdom of God to remove huge barriers such as mountains. Jesus said if you have a mustard seed amount of faith in the Word of God, nothing would be impossible to you.

I LOVE this particular story of FAITH IN ACTION:

Mark 5:25-34

King James Version (KJV)
25And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,
26And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,
27When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.
28For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.
29And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
30And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue (MY INPUT /dunamis power..from which we get our word dynamite) had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?
31And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?
32And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing.
33But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.
34And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.

I have read that in the Hebrew language, Faith is the catalyst that actually makes things happen.

I have seen it described this way:

"Faith is KNOWING it will happen BEFORE knowing that it can happen"

Read that last statement TWICE. If you let it sink into your being, you will begin to get a grasp on how faith actually works.
