Faith and Favor: Biblically?
Is it if you have faith you gain Gods favor or do they have anything to do with each other biblically?

Favor-ALL of us want to be liked by our associates. To a Christian a far stronger desire is to find favor with God. Of Jehovah God, it is stated at Psalm 84:11: “Favor and glory are what he gives. Jehovah himself will not hold back anything good from those walking in faultlessness.” At the birth of Jesus, the joyful cry of the heavenly angels promised “peace on earth for men whom he favours!”—Luke 2:14, Moffatt.
To gain Jehovah’s favor and approval, we must take care to see things from his viewpoint.
Jehovah God examines a person’s heart and favors those who display such qualities as love, goodness, kindness, and long-suffering. We should do likewise. (1 Samuel 16:7; Galatians 5:22, 23)
To gain God’s favor, we must continue to seek accurate knowledge of God and of his Son, Jesus Christ, becoming well educated in the pure language of truth. (John 17:3, 17) In so doing, we too will be among those whom God favors.
Faith only come from taking in an accurate knowledge of the truth. One cannot have true faith based on speculation.
(Hebrews 11:1) Faith is the assured expectation of things hoped for, the evident demonstration of realities though not beheld.

Biblically, snakes talk and donkeys talk and bushes talk, so I wouldn't put much trust in the term "biblically."
