Faith as it relates to Finances  

I know that faith is essentially "the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" (Heb 11:1; KJV) or, as the NIV puts it , faith "is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see".

As you may or may not know I have been out of work for some time now, but I have been believing God for work and for my finances. As such, I have been looking for and studying scriptures that deal with faith, finances, etc. I have come across a few and have been standing on them and speaking them. I would like to know though what others believe faith to be and how faith relates to our finances (our financial situation).

Just as an interesting note: I recently came across an interesting definition of wealth that says that wealth is "a balance of physical and mental health, spiritual fulfillment, family happiness, true friendships, love, social kindness, the development of wisdom through knowledge and understanding, and financial prosperity" (Affirmations of Wealth by John Alexandrov). Given this definition, how many of us can say that we are truly wealthy?
