What is faith?

Faith in God is less apt to proceed from miracles than miracles from faith in God.

And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him. 
Hebrews 11:6

These two elements [believing that He is, and is a rewarder of those who seek Him] seem most simple, but, alas, how many professing Christians act as if God were not living; and how many others, though seeking after Him, are not expecting from Him as Rewarder!
Newell, commenting on Hebrews 11:6

But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. 
Jeremiah 17:7
