How faith works

I have heard so much about the blind faith christians are supposed to have, my faith has never been blind. Hebrews ch:11. v. 1 defines what the faith of christians is...Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen. St. Paul further explains in Romans ch:10. v. 17 ..Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God.
When you hear the gospel message, if you will humble yourself to listen to it, God will put faith into your heart to believe it.
This imparted faith is rock solid, you can then step out and recieve from God the blessings His word has promised.
Now God is extraordinarily patient and merciful and He may sometimes seem [but it is only seem] to change the order of things, like when fierce, arrogant Saul, breathing out hate for the christians was on his way to Damascus and suddenly a light brighter than the noon-time sun shone on him, knocking him off his horse. But he still had to seek out Ananias to be instructed on the way of salvation in order to recieve faith in his heart to be saved.
YOU come to God right this minute, hear His words about how Jesus died on the cross to bear away your sins and then ask Him for the pardon He has promised and the new life in the spirit which He will impart to all who believe.
