That is the definition of faith.
Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
2 Corinthians 4:18
Believers walk by faith, not by sight.
For we walk by faith, not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:7

For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth,
why doth he yet hope for? Romans 8:24
