2. Look for the root word (the original 3 or 4 letter word in Hebrew):
Sometimes it is as easy as going back a few numbers and the concordance should point you in the right direction. In our case it says "from H539" above.
A primitive root; properly 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 Isa_30:21; by interchange for H541) to go to the right hand: - hence assurance, believe, bring up, establish, + fail, be faithful (of long continuance, steadfast, sure, surely, trusty, verified), nurse, (-ing father), (put), trust, turn to the right.

Here are some questions that I have asked myself while studying the word faith along with the answers I have came up with:
What does it mean to have faith?
Having faith is trusting In God for who HE is.
Who or What do you have faith in?
Sometimes I am looking to the wrong things and I need to
continually remind myself to look to YHVH and his son Yeshua for everything.
Do you have faith in God?
Do you have faith in HIS son Yeshua for your salvation?
Do I have faith in money to solve all my problems?
No, because it will not. It may even create more "problems":)
Do I have faith in a better house to make me happier?
No, because I am learning to be content in every circumstance:)
Did you know faith can make you righteous?
wow...now that is amazing...it's not the things I do, but faith - cool
What is your response to these questions? What does faith mean to you?
My prayer for you and I is that we will continue to be challenged in our faith and that little seed of faith that we plant and water will grow to bear fruit.
