What does it mean to have faith?

Often, especially if we are dealing with life’s challenges, we are encouraged to have faith. So, what does it mean to have faith?
Does it require church attendance or worshipping a higher power? Does it require us to blindly follow someone else’s teachings?
Perhaps having faith means expecting a higher power to act on our behalf without any effort on our part.
While you may have your own perception of what it means to have faith, here is what I’ve learned through my own experience.If I receive divine guidance and wait for something to manifest without acting upon that guidance, that is not having faith because I expected the spirit world to do the work for me.
Instead, having faith requires that I trust the guidance that I am given, act on it, and then allow myself to receive. Sometimes, that is easier said then done, but in the end, it is always worth my time and effort.
