Promised land (Hebrews 11:9)

Bible Verse:
”By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise.”(Hebrews 11:9)
Today, “promised land” can be generalized to mean any place blessed with plenty of resources. It can be interchangeably used with “land flowing with milk and honey”.
Origin and Application:
Abraham is known as the father of faith. Because of his faith in God, God blessed him with riches, children, and a land from the river of Egypt to the Euphrates river, i.e. the modern-day Israel.
American television presenter Oprah Winfrey describes her 42 acre house in California as “The Promised Land.”
Keywords :
