Heritage of Protection

No weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed, and you shall refute every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their vindication from me declares the Lord.”

Isaiah 54:17

“Nahla,” the original Hebrew word for heritage, means “inheritance, property” [1]. When we give our lives to Jesus, becoming part of the Lord’s family, we inherit His protection. No weapon formed against us nor lies said about us will succeed. Life doesn’t feel that way sometimes, but feelings lie; God doesn’t. We can rely on God’s promise of protection.

I just finished writing my latest book, “Living Divinely.” In it, I share the story of my journey back to Christ as an adult. Becoming a flight attendant after graduating college, I didn’t follow the Lord. Even though I asked Jesus into my heart at twelve, when my Dad died between my junior and senior year of high school, I blamed God and turned my back on Him.  Writing the book, I realized how the Lord protected me during those days when I didn’t follow Him.  Now available on Amazon, “Living Divinely” helped me see what I couldn’t see before.

God protects us when we place our trust in Him. We will endure attacks, but they won’t succeed. Victory came on the cross when Jesus picked up our beams, taking on our sins and receiving the punishment we deserved. Willingly, God’s Son did for us what we couldn’t do for ourselves. Placing our faith in Christ gives us His heritage of protection.


No weapon formed against us will succeed.


Lord, thank You for adopting us into Your family and giving us a heritage of protection. Let us not falter when the enemy attacks, knowing victory comes through You.  Help us serve You well as we move through our days.
