God our Heritage

Isaiah 54:15-17 (NIV)

15 If anyone does attack you, it will not be my doing; whoever attacks you will surrender to you.  16 “See, it is I who created the blacksmith who fans the coals into flame
and forges a weapon fit for its work.
And it is I who have created the destroyer to wreak havoc;17 no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and this is their vindication from me, ”declares the Lord.

There are different rules for those who are known by God.  When we are children of God, He protects us.  We should not be surprised when satan or anyone else attacks us, but rather should expect it for we do not belong to this world.  It is not God who is attacking us even though satan would want you to believe it.  It is satan who is overstepping his boundaries.  God created satan with a purpose in mind, so if He created him (satan) He can and will destroy him.  There is nothing that can separate us from the love of God and we shall overcome because God said so.  This is our heritage that God will stand up for us, refute our enemies’ accusations, and defend us.
