75 and strong
God told Terah and Abraham to go to the land of Canaan, they stopped in Haran and God blessed them there with possessions and servants, Abraham started to become rich and he led a huge flock on their way to Canaan, Abraham was 75 at that time and I think he felt as strong as ever.
It is a person
Even today God blesses people in the same way. However there are conditions to be met and they are real blessings giving both inner peace and material wealth. God knows what you need, it is not things, it is a person, the way to a rich life on earth and a gate to heaven, His name is Jesus, Matthew 6:33
To know the land
Abraham was full of hope and eager to see the land that God promised him, so he didn’t settle down somewhere, and relaxed after this long journey from Haran to Canaan. No, he wanted to see the great land that God had promised him. Abraham traveled through the land as far as Shechem, he had seen the Canaanites who lived there, had been on the mountains, in the valleys and along rivers and lakes. Crossing the landscape like that with all his animals when in Shechem Abraham knew most of his homeland pretty well.
