Such a devotional faith to the Buddha seems similar to the faith-faculty (saddhindriya) and power (saddhaabala) in the teachings of the five faculties (pa~nca indriyaani) and the five powers (pa~nca balaani) according to the Indriya Sa.myutta and Bala Sa.myutta of SN.
Saddha beejam - tapo vutthi (faith is the seed - practice is the rain).
What if a rain falls into a field where there are no seeds?
