By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
Hebrews 11:9-10

There are two parts to Abram's story. The first part says that by faith he went out into the land, and the second part says that by faith he stayed in the land. That tells me that he might have been tempted not to stay there.

Abram was in a strange country where he was an absolute stranger. The culture was different. The lifestyle was different. Everything was different.

Abram was not only a stranger in the land, he also had not seen everything God said he would receive. Yet, he decided to stay, and because he stayed, we know about Abraham today.
