Looking into Hebrews chapter 11 starting at verse 1 will show God used faith to bless the old saints whit heart desires and his promises. God does not change he is the same and he yet use man's faith to bless him. Without faith it is impossible to get to God and all because we don't believe. How can you receive from what you don't believe. If you don't beleive in a person or thing it is dead to you and you never consider it to do anything for you, and it want to you because you don't beleive it will or can ever. The same with Almighty God but yet he love those who don't beleive and keep the sunshinning and weather changing keeping them alive. Yet, they have no clue and many are mean, sad, and lonely in their hearts even if they have money.
