Soul Decrees for Kids is Finally Here!!
by Katie Souza
“But Jesus called the little children to him and said to his followers, “Let the little children come to me. Don’t stop them, because the kingdom of God belongs to people who are like these little children.”
Luke 18:16 (ICB)
“You shall also decide and decree a thing, and it shall be established for you, and the light [of God’s favor] shall shine upon your ways.”
Job 22:28 (AMP)
Everywhere I go, more and more, I am encountered by people sharing stories of their kids who have been listening to the teachings and revelations that God has given me to teach throughout the years. I have gotten reports from parents and grandparents about how their children love listening and soaking to these teachings and even want to meet me. Wow! How sweet. And what an honor.
Look, it touches my heart that these kids are longing for and seeking the Lord and that they are being impacted by this ministry. We are touching a generation. These youngsters are called to rule and reign… With them seeking and really digging into God’s Word at an early stage of their lives, they will be able to do things that we can’t do now. We are empowering them to become healed, whole, and sound of mind!
I am so glad we’re here to lead these children step by step into deep inner healing because early on, I remember how unsure I was on how to receive my healing.
You see, years ago, when I first received the revelation about the wounded soul, I was unsure how to go about receiving healing. I remember that time very well. I had been very sick on and off for almost a year. For long periods of time, months even, I would constantly experience fevers and extreme body pain, accompanied by severe vertigo that left me totally incapacitated. My throat was also under assault with painful inflammation, and thick, sticky mucus. This inexplicable illness would come in like a flood with seemingly no end. Even the strongest antibiotics had no effect. Then, just as quickly as it began, it would mysteriously vanish, only to return a few months later. This process repeated itself over and over again, leaving me exhausted and totally baffled!
Finally, after much torment, the Holy Spirit revealed to me that it was an assault from the enemy who was getting his right to attack me from unhealed areas in my soul. In the middle of another round of illness, I eagerly dug through scriptures the Lord had given me in hopes of finally finding a solution to this nightmare.
The first thing Holy Spirit showed me was how our soul man was not made instantly perfect upon our conversion. Then, He led me to various scriptures that revealed that our inner man literally got wounded through things like sin and trauma, and He went on to give me the keys to healing. First, He said I was to plead the blood of Jesus Christ, to wash away the sin that wounded me. Then, He showed me there were other attributes of Christ I also needed to embrace because they would bring healing to the wounds those sins made.
I was shown three main powers that could heal the wounded soul. First was the Light of Christ. I was led to verses like John 8:12 (ICB), where Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. The person who follows me will never live in darkness. He will have the light that gives life.” Upon closer inspection of this verse, I discovered that the word darkness in the Greek meant “the soul that has lost its perceptive powers”, whereas the word life meant “the abundance of life in God for the soul”. I had the first key. The light of Christ could bring healing and life to the dark areas of our inner man.
The second power revealed to me was the Glory of Christ and its ability to heal our wounds. In 2 Corinthians 3:18, it says we are changed into His image from glory to glory. Since our spirits are changed in an instant upon our conversion, I realized it was our soul that got progressively healed in the presence of His glory. This meant the more time we spent in His presence, worshipping and praising Him, the more our wounded souls would be healed since His presence inhabits our praises.
Finally, He showed me what resurrection power could do to heal the wounded soul. After more study, I learned the Bible calls this power dunamis, and according to Strong’s Concordance, that word means “excellence of soul”. As I studied this dunamis power, I learned that when we were born again, our spirit man was filled up with it, which meant all believers had a tank full of soul healing power that would never run out. As I pondered this truth, I wondered why we were all so sick and wounded if we already had all we needed to be healed.
That’s when God began to show me how our faith, the Word, and our decrees could release that power into our lives. The Lord gave me a simple, yet powerful answer one day through two scriptures:
- James 1:21 (KJV): “…receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.”
- Job 22:28 (KJV): “Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.”
I began to understand that one of the many ways I could release and administer these powers I had learned about was by decreeing the Word over myself. The Bible says the Word has the power to heal the soul and, if I decreed it, then healing would be established in my life.
So, I began to amass a list of verses, especially those that specifically spoke on healing the wounded soul. Then I took simple baby steps to just read through my list every day during my worship time. At first, I felt somewhat foolish at this mechanical, repetitious way of seeking a miracle. I was even taunted by the enemy who tried to make me believe that nothing was happening through this daily exercise. That is, until one day when I experienced a breakthrough.
I was sick, as usual. The enemy was immediately in my ear saying, “See, I told you it wasn’t working.” However, I kept up the decrees even though my faith was waning along with my physical body. After worshipping and decreeing my list, I was exhausted and fell into a deep sleep. As I did, I saw a powerful beam of light drill into my eye. At that moment, I remembered that the eye was the window to the soul, which meant my inner man was literally being filled with the Light of Christ! His glorious presence was making me excellent of soul! When I awoke, I was healed! My simple but faithful practice of speaking specific decrees over my soul had worked! I was on to something bigger than I could imagine, and it would continue to grow in power and authority as I helped thousands use the same precepts to receive their breakthroughs.
To this day, I use those decrees for myself and others to open up the realm of the miraculous. That is why I wrote my book, Soul Decrees. Listen, if I had to battle so hard, I knew it might be too difficult for the children to pick up, so that is why we wrote Soul Decrees for Kids.
In this beautifully illustrated book, we guide kids through short lessons and scriptures that teach these young readers how to decree God’s Word and to recognize that God is there for them, and then walk them through developing a vibrant and effective prayer life. They will love the fun activities that make their faith come alive! It also contains the power to heal their souls, which will allow them to enjoy the abundant and prosperous life that God planned for them. We teach them about salvation and decreeing God’s Word, to not only get their souls healed but to bring about healing in those around them. We wish we had known about our souls and the healing process from a younger age. Had we been empowered with this information from the time we were children, it certainly would have saved us, our parents, and many others from much heartache and pain!
The decrees in this book include specific prayers for healing of trauma, offense, and wounds of every kind. There are also decrees that kids can declare that will heal them of any wounds they have in common with Satan’s helpers.
This anointed and beautifully illustrated book will…
- Teach your children not only about salvation, but empower them from a young age, to release the awesome power of decreeing God’s Word.
- Allow kids to begin their walk with the Lord in power and authority.
- Assure children that God is there for them, and instruct them in how to speak God’s Word, increasing their faith, and giving them hope and real victory in their lives!
- Show how the Word of God has the power to heal the soul and, if decreed, healing will be established in their lives.
- Demonstrate that when a child accepts Jesus into their heart, God’s super dunamis power will come to live in and fill their spirit man.
- Show how the Word and our decrees can release that super dunamis power into our lives, to heal the sick, and do miracles.
- Teach your child how to be free from negative emotions such as fear, hatred, depression, anxiety, bitterness, sorrow, a critical spirit, and ungodly appetites.
- Reassure kids that God’s super dunamis power in them is greater than Satan’s bullies.
