I can't remember if it was Thayer's Greek-English Lexicon that had a
comment on the text you have alluded to. I believe Thayer et al calls this
the "objective use of the genitive" which would refer to God in this case as
the object of faith, the One we should put our faith in. It will be
interesting to see the commnets of the other members.
