The earth and all that is in it belongs to God who created everything and we are living as His guests in His house. How ironic that most people neither know nor desire to know the source of all that they have.
Miriam, a prophetess and elder sister of Moses, became a blessing for Moses and the Israelites but also suffered for criticizing him, though Aaron was let off by God. God is not a respecter of persons yet then and now woman always carries the blame.
Every believer is always engaged in a battle against the forces of darkness and the victorious in Lord Jesus first win in prayer and then goes to war while the defeated fight and then pray.
Prayer is heart work to match our thirst for God with His desire to bless us and it is the only way to prepare and enlarge our own heart to make it ready and equipped to welcome God within.
Darkness is not a curse but to continue to live in that is, and the one, who despite having the blessed hand of God reaching out to pull him, rejects the offer, is cursed indeed.
