How Can We Know The Truth?

If faith is a firm belief in something for which there is no proof, and truth is anything which is in accordance with fact or reality, is it possible that faith and truth may not overlap? To be more specific, if someone does not personally know whether their faith is in accordance with reality, should this be a reason for pause? I get deeper into trying to discern this distinction in my post: Is Faith Synonymous With Truth? Check it out and let me know what you think?

​When thinking about our beliefs, and in particular when we are talking about faith, which can often be understood as confidence, what is it exactly that people are so confident about? Is faith itself a form of knowledge? Do people arrive at the truth by having faith, or is knowledge something separate from that? How can we know the difference?
