Ever watch a baby learn to walk.... s/he goes through so much... to take those first few steps... wobbling like crazy... so very easy for them to cry... but it all begins in Faith... That kind of Faith makes itself reliable, trustworthy, it's the kind that doesn't deflate. Once that kind of Faith is awarded, the babe takes hold... and zooms forward. Try to catch a little one, full of vigour and life. That spark creates lightning. Faith gives us confidence to enter a thing with gusto... boldly... as it rings with that substance that says... Yesssss...inside.
Faith gives rise to motion, emotions, movements. And yes you are correct that Faith can hold many positions... we have proof of this, throughout history. The Fruit of Faith proves much; wrongly placed Faith is unfruitful... look through history, it' proves so much.
