Confidence (with faith)

There once was an army officer whose subordinates always followed his orders, and he, in turn, was apparently concerned for their welfare. When one of his servants became disabled by palsy, the officer wanted to help. So he asked for assistance from a stranger who he firmly believed could make the servant well. And the officer's confidence in the stranger's authority was a major factor in the servant's quick recovery.

You may have recognized this as the Bible's account of how Christ Jesus healed the centurion's servant. See Matt. 8:5-13 . The Bible shows the qualities the centurion expressed, such as courage, humility, and confidence.
