Take It by Force

“From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and the violent take it by force”(Matthew 11:12).

Our assignment on earth is to advance the kingdom of God, to walk in authority and dominion and to take possession of everything that God has promised us. The enemy wants us to live broke down, depressed, oppressed and well below our potential. When we come into the fullness and complete understanding of who we are in Christ Jesus and the power available to us, we will no longer live with what the enemy is serving up.

Jesus Christ died and rose from the dead, to give us power to tread upon serpents and scorpions and over every power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means harm us (Luke 10:19). If you are sick, we recognise that healing is a promise to the children of God. “You shall serve the Lord your God, and he will bless your bread and your water, and I will take sickness away from among you” (Exodus 23:25). Daily tap into what the word says about healing, in order to build your faith in that area and then claim your healing in Jesus Name.

The Bible provides prescriptions for healing from mental, emotional and physical infirmity. It offers hope and insight for lack and debt and hope and strength for the weary. Time is never an excuse for not studying the Bible, when we find time for so many other distractions. Besides, when we come to the understanding of how we can use the word to win our battles, we won’t miss out on learning the word in order to claim from its promises.

God made us in his image to rule and reign as Kings and seated us in heavenly places in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:6). God’s promise is that he has made us the head and not the tail, above and not beneath (Exodus 28:13). We take our rightful seat of authority on this earth and refuse to settle for being restricted, held back and treated like second class citizens.

The enemy will not surrender territory willingly, so we progress violently through prayer and claim our rightly possession. We use the word of God as our weapon, which is quick and powerful, sharper than any two edged sword. Piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12).

I am a trained Social Worker who currently provides professional leadership on a programme to support Social Work students and Newly Qualified Social Workers entering the Social Work Profession.

Born and raised in Jamaica in a Christian family where my father is an ordained Pastor and Deacon who has served for over 50 years in the ministry. My father is also a trained musician and our family can be described as a musical family. I grew up in a small farming community in St. Peter’s, St. Andrew and my parents also have a small farm.

I credit my gift of writing to my father who I watched and listened to over the years as he wrote sermons, poems and other recitals in his capacity in ministry. English has always been an easy subject for me and over the years I have developed an increased interest in writing.

I am a Trainer, I sing and have a passion for worship, the spoken word and the free flow of the prophetic anointing. I am married to my best friend Andrew Christopher Young who is an advanced Musician and whose music you can find on YouTube and Facebook. I am a trained Coach and Mentor and I love experimenting with food so I love cooking. I enjoy trying cultural dishes from across the world and I view food as an entry into cultures and languages.
