What does having faith mean?

In Romans 4:18-21, Apostle Paul wrote about Abraham's faith:

18. Hoping in spite of hopeless circumstances, he believed that he would become "the father of many nations," just as he had been told: "This is how many descendants you will have."
19. He did not weaken in faith when he thought about his own body (which was already as good as dead now that he was about a hundred years old) or about Sarah's inability to have children,
20. nor did he doubt God's promise out of a lack of faith. Instead, he became strong in faith and gave glory to God,
21. being absolutely convinced that God would do what he had promised. (ISV)

Having faith is hoping in spite of hopeless circumstances. Having faith is never doubting the promises of God. Having faith is being absolutely convinced that God would do what he had promised to do.
