Much like a friend who makes a promise and you have no direct evidence of whether or not he or she will keep the promise, faith in the Biblical understanding and usage is defined in a similar manner. It is an assurance.

Bit of a skewed analogy here. You have evidence of your friends existence and hopefully of prior isntances of him keeping a promise.
You have no evidence for the existence of a God or any of the miraculous events described in the bible.
