Isaiah 54; Our heritage of faith

In this chapter Isaiah says, “this is the heritage of the servants of the Lord”… (verse 17).  What is “this heritage”?  It is blessing (“enlarge the place of your tent, spread abroad to the right and left”), no fear, steadfast love from the Lord, convenant of peace, strong foundation, children taught by and given peace by the Lord, and protection.  In a society and world where things valued are often transient and fleeting, it is reassuring to know that faith can produce and promise these character virtues.
