Katie was once broken,oppressed, in bondage to a life of mental and physical painuntil God gave her a new life and powerful messages of how youcan heal your wounded soul.

Now, here is Katie to begintoday's program.

>> Katie Souza: Hi, I'mKatie Souza, and you're watching "Healing Your Soul," real keysto the miraculous.

Are you sweating your brainsout, and starving yourself to death in order to lose weight?Diet and exercise are good, but there are also supernaturalpowers from God that can bring you breakthrough in the areasof weight loss and overeating.

Grace is one of those powers.

Today, I'm going to tell you a story about a time when I wasgaining weight even though I was exercising and eating right.

I couldn't figure out why it was happening, and I was gettingvery frustrated.

Then, one night, God instructedme to just listen to Scriptures on grace, and that's when I gota breakthrough.

Not only did the weight gainstop, but grace also caused me to lose all those pounds withina week.

How is that possible?I'm going to show you how today.

>> Katie: I didn't always looklike this, amen? And I didn't always feel likethis.

Okay, I've had a problemmy entire life.

I always ate too much food.

I was never satisfied no matter what I ate.

Okay, I always ate super fast.

And it started from when I wasa child, from when I was a little kid.

I can remember for my 10th birthday, my mom, she mademe my birthday meal, right? She got me a porterhouse steak,it's like one of those big ones that doesn't fit on a plateand you have to have a platter.

And she got the biggestbaked potato she could find, then she got a half a gallon ofvanilla ice cream, she just left it in the carton, opened it up,and then surrounded it by half a dozen of those reallybig vanilla glazed donuts.

I ate every bite of that on myown at super high speed, all right?That was me from a little kid.

>> Katie: The more you start tounderstand about grace and how it keeps your soul, strengthensyour soul, increases your soul, causes your soul to becontrolled by Christian virtues, and the more you positionyourself to receive grace in your life, the more physicalmiracles you'll have in your body too, okay?Did you hear what I said? The more grace comesin–remember, grace is a holy influence that keeps the soul,strengthens the soul, increases the soul, okay?The more you receive that grace, that free, unmerited, unearned,undeserved grace into your soul, the more it will heal your soul,right? And then the more you'll havephysical miracles out here, okay?Does that say that in the Bible? Yep.

Acts 6:8, this is just one example, there are others.

It's talking about Stephen, remember Stephen?It says, "Stephen was full of grace.

"Everybody say, "Full of grace.

" "He was full of grace and power,and he worked great wonders, signs, and miracles amongthe people.

" There's no coincidences.

The Bible says Stephen was full of grace, and then he also,connected to that, worked signs, wonders, and miracles, amen?And I thought, "What does that mean, God?"So, here's Stephen, he's full of grace, and man, he's working it.

He's gotten–he's got miracles going on, and all kinds ofcrazy, amazing signs and wonders happening, and it's becausehe's full of grace.

What does that mean, God?So, I actually went and looked it up.

I looked up the word "full.

" What does it mean to befull of grace? You are not going to believewhat the word "full" means there.

You ready for it? Listen to this.

To be thoroughly permeated in the soul.

Did you hear that? Stephen must have known aboutgrace so much, he must have had his faith high for grace so muchthat he was full of grace.

Literally grace had come intohis soul, and was keeping his soul, strengthening his soul,increasing his soul, causing his soul to be controlled byChristian virtues.

His soul was full of a powercalled grace.

He was–full means to bethoroughly permeated in the soul.

He was thoroughly permeated in his soul with this power ofgrace.

And because he was, he hadsigns, wonders, and miracles happening in his lifeall the time.

Do you get it?Wow.

As I read–I read my ownpreaching and went, "I want more of that, Kate.

Oh yeah, amen, Kate.

Good word, Kate, amen.

I'm going to do that too, Kate.

" I have put my expectation highfor grace in my life, amen? For grace, grace,grace in my life.

So how do we–how do weappropriate it? How do we do it?I mean, do we just sit there and go, "Mmm, I believe, ching.

I believe, ching.

" Well, faith is actually a bigpart of it, but we need to put our focus on something so thatwe can–we can receive the fullness of the giftthat God has already given us.

See, it is through our faiththat we receive grace.

That's what Ephesians 2 saysabout our salvation, right? That it's through grace.

It's by grace through faith that we are saved.

So, our faith–when faith is released and faith rises upin us, it actually releases the power of grace.

Okay, so how do you have more faith so you can have evenmore grace? You can grow your faith.

Did you know you can grow your faith?What does it say? Faith comes by hearing,and hearing by the Word, right? So, what happens when we heara Word about grace, like this preached right here?You're hearing a Word about grace.

Do you feel your faith rising for more grace as you heardthe preach? Because the truth ofthe Scripture is happening right now.

Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word.

As you've been hearing me preach the Word, your faith isgrowing up.

And little did you even realizethat, as you sat here right now, and you heard the Word beingpreached, that your faith grew and grace is being releasedin you right now.

Right now, right now.

It's going into your soul, it's keeping your soul,it's strengthening your soul, it's increasing your soul,it's causing your soul to be controlled by Christian virtuesjust by you hearing the Word about grace.

Amen? Go home, watch other preacherswho preach a balanced doctrine about grace.

As you listen to it, your faith will grow up some more,to receive even more grace.

And automatically, as that faithrises up in you from you hearing the Word, then grace will bereleased even more, more waves of grace.

And where do they go? Bam, they go right in here,baby.

They go right into your soul,amen? Go home and get your Bible out,look up every Scripture with the word "grace" in it, amen?And read it, and read it.

Faith comes by hearing,hearing by the Word.

Faith comes by hearing,hearing by the Word.

As you hear the Word of grace,as you read it and you meditate on it, and you listen to it, andyou speak it out, your faith is going to rise and rise and rise.

And every time–every moment that your faith is increasing,more grace is coming.

More grace and more grace,until finally, as you saturate yourself with the Word of grace,you'll become like Stephen, full of grace.

Your soul will be completely permeated with grace, and you'llstart to see physical miracles happening in your body,just like he did.

Said he was full of grace, andhe had signs, and wonders, and miracles happening all the timein his ministry, amen? Whoo.

You know, sometimes I'll just, like, use grace like a daggerto stab at my issue.

You know, that Scripture,all right, in Hebrews 4, what does it say?"The Word of God," right? Faith comes by hearing,hearing by the Word.

"The Word of God is alive andactive, shaper than any double-edged sword, penetratingeven to the dividing of the soul and the spirit.

"The grace Word is like a dagger.

You pick it up, you begin todecree it, you being to read it, you begin to meditate on it,and what'll it do? It'll go boom.

It'll go right into your belly, and separate soul from spirit.

It'll start judging, delivering, and healing the things inyour soul that are causing that problem in the first place.

Use grace like that double-edged dagger, amen?The Word of grace.

Do you know in the Old Testamentthat there was a man, a king, named Eglon king of Moab.

And the Bible says he was grossly fat.

He was a very, very overweight king.

And there was an Israelite man named Ehud, he was a Benjamitethat fashioned a double-edged dagger, and used it to kill thisfat king.

It says that in order to getinto the king's presence, he brought him a big gift of food.

I suppose that's what you'd bring if you wanted to go visita guy that really liked food, right?Bring a big gift of food.

So, he went in and he said,"Here's this gift I brought for you, and I've got a Word fromthe Lord for you.

" And he said, "But I have to giveit to you in private.

" So, he sent out all hisservants, and then here's Ehud with his double-edged dagger hidunderneath his robe.

He walks up to the king and hegoes, "Here's the Word of the Lord for you,the Word of the Lord.

" And he pulled out that word.

Remember, the Word is like a double-edged sword, amen?And it said he stabbed him right in the belly.

And this fat king, it says all the fat and all the you knowwhat came out of that king when he stabbed him rightin the belly.

" Do you know the word "belly"there means the soul? He killed that fat king bystabbing him in the belly with the Word.

He stabbed him in the belly with the Word, the double-edgeddagger, and all the fat and everything else came out.

He stuck him right in the soul, the root of the problem.

That's what you're going to do, amen?There are demonic powers, fat kings in the demonic realm thatare over your soul, and they're causing you to gain weight.

But you're going to take that double-edged sword of God, theWord of God, that grace Word, and you're going to stab itright in the belly, and it's going to separate soulfrom spirit.

It's going to judge that stuffin your soul, and it's going to keep your soul, it's going tostrengthen your soul, it's going to increase your soul,it's going to cause your soul to be healed.

Amen? >> Katie: I was sent an amazingstory from an inmate who was the leader of a motorcycle gang.

He was involved in a shootout in a casino, where nine menwere killed.

While serving a life sentence,he read one of my books, and now he teaches Bible classes tothe other men in his facility.

I struggled with lifelong food issues until God showed me thatmost of my problems were coming from wounds in my soul.

You can too.

>> Katie: I just went through, like not too long ago, not toolong ago at all, I had a moment.

I was doing really great, andthen all of a sudden, out of the blue, I started gaining pounds.

I was gaining a pound every day or two.

And I was eating less, and I was exercising.

But I just kept on going up and up and up and up on the scale.

And when I reached, like, 10 pounds in, like,a week or two, I was like, "Oh, something's going on here.

I ain't even eating.

There is something going on,God.

What is it?"So, I went to bed, and I actually made myself thisreally cool disc.

I recorded all the graceScriptures, and I put a little music underneath it, and I mademyself a little soaking disc.

And I turned it on, and Istarted soaking to this grace disc, and just listening tothe grace Scriptures.

Remember, faith comes byhearing, and hearing by the Word.

So, as I'm listening to them as I'm going to bed, my faith isrising to get more grace, right? And that grace was becomingthe double-edged sword that would divide soul from spirit.

So, I'm listening to it, and I'm receiving all this power,my faith is rising, and grace is being released, and it's goingin here, and it's keeping my soul, and strengthening my soul,and increasing my soul.

And I'm listening to it whileI'm about to go to bed, and all of a sudden.

[snoring] fall asleep.

And I have a dream.

I have a dream there's this big,fat, plump spider in my house, black widow spider, and I'mtrying to drive it out of my house with this water pipe.

And I'm trying to squirt it to go out of the house, but itkeeps on getting away from me.

And so, I finally reach in and Ipulled out a dagger.

Remember, I was listeningto the grace Scriptures.

I pulled out a dagger, and Iwent and I started to stab that fat thing.

And every time I did, it got smaller and smaller and smaller,until finally it was dead.

I woke up the next day,stopped gaining weight, and lost the weight within 2 weekswithout exercising or dieting.

Grace did it.

I was listening to the Word of God.

Remember, Hebrews says the Word that God speaks,is alive and active like a double-edged dagger,separating soul from spirit.

I was listening tothe Word of God, I was listening to the Word of grace.

And that grace, as my faith raised up to receive it, wasactually releasing grace into my soul.

And whatever it was that was causing that to happen to me,God healed.

Amen?It got healed.

I believe that's what's going tohappen to you, amen? How many of you are tired ofworking for it and you just need some grace?Amen.

Okay, I want–we're going toactivate into this.

I want you to sit, and I'm goingto–I'm going to decree some grace Scriptures over you.

And as you hear the Word, faith comes by hearing,and hearing by the Word, right? You're going to start rising up,your faith is going to start rising up to receive grace.

And know that, at that exact moment, grace is being released,amen? It's flowing into your soul, andit's going to start causing your soul to be thoroughly permeatedwith grace so you can be like Stephen, full of grace, and thenyou can have miracles in your physical body, amen?So, just close your eyes and just receive right nowas I pray over you.

I decree right now thatthe power of grace is free, unmerited, unearned, undeserved,and that you received it in your salvation through your faith,so you already have it.

It's already there.

It's already working for you.

And there's nothing more youcan do right now but just receive it.

And I decree this grace is going to keep your soul, strengthenyour soul, increase your soul, and cause your soul to becontrolled by Christian virtues.

It's keeping your soulright now.

It's strengthening your soulright now.

It's increasing your soulright now.

Grace is causing your soul to becontrolled by Christian virtues right now, by you just–yourfaith to receive it.

I decree you're going to becomefull of grace, like Stephen.

You're going to be thoroughlypermeated in your soul with this free, undeserved powercalled grace.

And you're going to seemiracles, signs, and wonders because of it.

You're under a covenant with God.

There's no way you can't be receiving grace right now.

You are in covenant with Jesus Christ.

It was by grace through faith you were saved, and you steppedinto a covenant of grace, and nothing can break that covenant.

There is nothing that can take this grace power away from youright now, nothing, nothing.

No demon in hell, no sin,no–nothing you could have ever done or not done could stealthis covenant of grace from you.

And I decree every time youhad a slip, a lapse, a sin, or a fall by eating too much,or falling into an addiction or a sin, that you are now beingcleansed, and healed, and washed by grace.

For where sin abounds, grace, grace abounds, surpasses,and increases, and even super-abounds.

I decree every time you ate too fast, grace is washing itaway right now.

Every time you ate too much,grace is healing you of that right now.

Every time you took that addiction into your body,grace is there right now, super-abounding that sin,increasing, going over that sin, and super-abounding more thanthe sin could ever be.

Receive it.

It's free, unearned, unmerited.

Whether you sense it or not,it's moving right now, wiping out every sin, penetrating intoyour soul right now.

I decree sin will not even havedominion over you.

Romans 6:14 says, "For sin shallnot have dominion over you, for you are not under the law,but under grace.

" I decree you are under grace.

Grace is healing your soul so you will not sin.

Sin will not have dominion over you because you will not desireto sin anymore.

Grace is healing that area whereyou have been controlled in your soul.

I decree it right now, grace flowing in to that place whereyou have been controlled.

In your soul, that wounded areathat's caused you to have an appetite for stuff that youshouldn't have, grace is going to that place.

Maybe you're always angry, you can't stop being angry.

Grace is going to that place.

Maybe you're always fearfuland you can't stop, you're consumed by fear.

Grace is going to keep your soul, strengthen your soulin that area.

Maybe you're always offended andyou can't stop being offended.

Grace is going there to causeyour soul to be controlled by Christian virtues.

You are under grace and not under the law.

And sin shall not have dominion over you.

You are full of grace.

Full of grace right now,full of grace.

Every good and perfect gift,God's showing you gift heaped upon gift, spiritual blessingupon spiritual blessing because of grace, because of grace.

Right now, in Jesus' name.

And I decree every time youcross the line from a grace move to a works mentality, you'rebeing healed of that right now in Jesus' name.

I ask that the Holy Spirit would give you discernment to showwhen you've gone from Holy Spirit inspired instructionto a work that was dry, and had no oil on it and no grace.

And God would show you when you cross that line so you wouldnever cross it again.

I decree all your promisesare going to happen as an act of grace through faith.

Right now, just meditate on the promise God has given you andjust say, "I believe it, God.

I believe my promise is comingto pass because of grace through my faith.

I receive the inheritance of my promises because of grace.

"Right now, thank you Jesus, now Jesus, now Jesus, now Jesus,now Jesus, now Jesus.

Just start saying it toyourself, "I'm full of grace, I'm full of grace.

"Just start saying, "Grace, fill my soul.

Fill my soul right now.

Cause my soul to be kept,strengthened, increased, and controlled byChristian virtues.

" Remember, it's free.

It's unearned, undeserved.

I don't have to work for it.

I just have to believe.

Help Katie reach out to the thousands of prisoners witha powerful message of God's ultimate healing power.

>> Katie: People often come up to me and ask why I spend somuch time and money to go into prisons.

Well, it's simple.

I had countless arrests myself,and spent years in federal prison.

I've seen firsthand inmates that are real people that societyhas forgotten.

We as Christians have forgottento love them.

When we go into prisons, we seeincredible miracles, like the young man who was hit in the eyewith a bat, and it caused his retina to detach.

It left a large scar, leaving him almost totally blind.

During the meeting that he did not want to attend, Godcaused the scar to disappear.

After he could see,he was totally in.

Our prisons are full of peoplewho have gone through horrific things.

They're broken, abandoned, and alone.

Ninety percent of them are suffering from some sort ofsickness or mental illness, and many are serving a lot of timewithout hope.

If God is pouring outextravagant miracles and hope to those in prison, how can we notshow them this same love? >> Katie: Join me next weekas we start a whole new series.
