How to expand your influence in this season. (Part 3 & 4)

Do you know that as a child of God you do not need to strive to create an influence?

When the rulers and elders of Israel saw how the ordinary disciples, Peter and John were working miracles, they realized that they had been with Jesus. (Acts 4:13).

When you walk with the Light you will begin to create influence without any striving.

Watch Part 3 & 4 of this 4 part series where Author Kim D’Souza expands further on how you can expand your influence in this season by walking with the Light and the importance of moving by faith.

You Choose Your Fears!

You Choose Your Fears!

A couple of days ago, as I woke up in the morning, within a flash of seconds I saw something that felt so real. I saw a sizable group of people filled with fear, shivering in terror at the sight of something. It was the sight of a new year being unveiled. While the world was celebrating in anticipation for what 2024 holds, this weird group of people were sitting in the dark and were traumatized at the sight of the new year’s sun rise.

Fear

In my spirit, I knew what I was a seeing was a reality and I began to pray for this group of people.

Precious Holy Spirit spoke to me saying: “Tell my Body – It’s you who choose your fears.”

If you believe in your fears so much, they will work for you, just as the principle of faith works. For instance, if you fear things will become worse for you in your job and keep meditating on it, before long you shall see your fears manifest. If you fear that sickness will come for you, it surely will. If you have fears in your heart that you will never get married, those fears will bring that fruit to you. Job said: For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me ( Job 3:25 ).

Just as God gets attracted to faith, fears draw the presence of demons to you.

God is blatant in saying that He has not given His children a spirit of fear, but of power, love and of a sound mind ( 2 Tim 1:7 ).

Be rooted and steadfast in the Word of God. Know that Jeremiah 29:11 is a reality, when God says: For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Child of God, you choose your fears, so choose well. Choose the fear of the Lord over and above everything else. His Word is your protection and peace.

What I Learned From The Dried Lemon Tree🍋

What I Learned From The Dried Lemon Tree🍋

Due to some neglect, my lemon tree completely dried up. This lemon tree is no ordinary tree I purchased from the nursery. In a season of learning about seeds in the Kingdom of God from my spiritual father, Pastor Derrick D’souza, 4 years ago, I planted this seed from its fruit. I planted and watered this lemon tree, and seeing it grow was like seeing the glorious works of Yahweh.

With little understanding, I remember pruning it when it grew vertically because I wanted it to be a certain height so that it looked appealing.

A friend had come over, and as soon as she looked at the tree, she said, “Ohh, the tree is gone; you should throw it.” Now, she was not wrong; the neglect had dried all the leaves; it looked as good as dead, and watering it seemed like a waste of time. But I smiled at her and said: “It will come to life.”

Lemon Tree

Look, I don’t know anything about gardening, but I know how to listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit. I heard Him say these words to me: “It will come to life,” before it happened, and all I merely did was repeat those words.

After 15 days of faithfully watering the lemon tree, I noticed it had grown fresh leaves today. I laughed at the enemy, as good as dead, you said. The God of my father is a God of resurrection.

Two things I learned from the Lemon tree:

1. Being rooted in Christ

Even after months of neglect with no sunlight or water, the lemon tree could sprout back because it was rooted. When you fail, do not be disheartened. Just smile and say, “It will come to life.” Suddenly, you will see fresh green leaves – I call it the sweet, sweet grace of our Father in your life.

To be rooted in Christ means Jesus provides all the essential nutrients we need to grow and bear fruit and also provides the foundation we need to stand firm when we face trials or tough seasons.

“As you, therefore, have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.” Colossians 2:6-7

So, If the enemy tells you it’s over, know that your roots are strong enough for you to spring back.

2. God is working, even when you don’t see it.

You may not see any change in your situation right now, but know that God is working. Don’t settle for what the world has to say about your life; your God’s steadfast love never ceases, and His mercies do not end.

“Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23

Let His mercy locate you every morning.

Girl, what you invest your time in today will help you get through challenging times. Me pruning the tree made the roots stronger for it to thrive in a time of drought.

Similarly, as you spend time building your roots on the Word of God, you will thrive when others are barely surviving.

Why We Must Never Give Up Praying for Our Unsaved Family Members

Why We Must Never Give Up Praying for Our Unsaved Family Members

Girl, are you the only believer in your family? You encountered the Father’s unconditional love, and you realised this is where your heart feels at home because you were always designed to be in union with your Creator. You experienced love, joy, peace, and deliverance, and you decided that there was no way you would go back to your old life.

However, you soon find out not everyone close to you is as excited about Jesus as you are. You realise that those close to you still want to live in the old way of life you decided to leave behind. Not only that but now you may find a lot of opposition from the people closest to you.

When you realise that it is a spirit operating behind them that hates you and is attacking you because the devil is so scared of you, you will be able to guard your heart against offense and bitterness. The Bible says, “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12 NKJV

Declarations

It is the enemy who wants you to give up

Even though the enemy may use broken people to attack and hurt you, the Word of GOD encourages us to pray for those who don’t know JESUS so that they, too, can come to the knowledge of the truth.

“For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” 1 Timothy 2:3-4 NKJV

It is the enemy who wants you to give up. You may have been praying for your loved ones, and still, you see them making wrong choices, unwilling to listen and open doors for things they should have never done, inviting one storm after the other in their lives. You always pray, but you still see them in the same place with the same demons, and you wonder when everything is going to change.

Don’t be deceived into thinking that nothing is happening. The Word of GOD in James 5:16 NKJV says, “The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” Keep believing that your prayers avail much. Don’t believe the lies of the enemy.

As my spiritual mother, Prophetess Kim D’Souza, says, “Can you doubt your doubts? If anything, doubt the enemy but never doubt the Word of GOD.” The word of GOD says clearly in Romans 3:4 NKJV, “…..Let God be true but every man a liar.”

Give them a new name.

My spiritual father, Prophet Derrick D’Souza, says if you want to see a change in a person’s life, start by giving them a new name. We see in the Bible that only after Abram and Sarai’s names were changed to Abraham and Sarah did they birth Isaac and become father and mother to many nations. After Jacob’s (a supplanter) name was changed to Israel, meaning ‘Let GOD prevail,’ he received the covenant his father and grandfather had received.

If you want to see a change, start by giving them a new name. Call them the next Revivalist, JESUS Lover, Son of GOD, The Light, etc. Start calling things that are not as though they are, and you’ll see them come to pass on earth.

Do not allow discouragement/ disappointments and hopelessness to creep in.

I remember one time Prophet Shyju Mathew prophesied over a lady, saying, “The very fact some of your family members are alive is because of your prayers.” He added that they would have been long dead had you not stood in the gap and prayed continuously.

I learned that day that just because we don’t see a change in the physical doesn’t mean nothing is happening. The very fact some of your family members are even alive today is because of your fervent prayers. Beloved of the most high, let that encourage you!

Never stop fellowshipping with fellow believers.

Many times, when you go to church or prayer meetings, your loved ones may get irritated and attack you. But I want to tell you it is the devil; never ever give in to the lie that if you stop attending church or prayer meetings, there will be peace in your house, and no fights or irritation will happen. That is the tactic of the enemy.

Many will be offended by your choices, but you keep growing strong in the LORD. Increase your prayer life. No matter what, never leave fellowshipping with fellow believers. Never skip church. Skipping church will not bring peace in your house. In fact, it will give the enemy a free hand.

Don’t live to please people. You are called to live for the audience of ONE! When you honor GOD, the very people who dishonored you because of your choices will see HIS hand upon your life and come to you to know about this KING!

GOD is working behind the scenes for you

Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them. Mark 11:24 NKJV

For the longest time ever since I became a believer, I’ve prayed for my biological father. He was a staunch non-believer with a hardened heart towards the LORD. Along the way many people too, prayed for my father declaring he would come to the LORD. Years passed by yet I didn’t see much change in him. Then last year, he had a brain stroke. While he was still in coma, my spiritual father Prophet Derrick D’Souza prayed for him and said that the LORD has reconciled my father to himself. Soon my father regained consciousness, and overtime I began to notice a change in him. While his memory and ability to hold conversations was still improving, whenever I would share about JESUS to him he would weep.

Many a times my father still is not fully aware of his surroundings, yet he is aware of GOD. His spirit immediately recognises praise and worship songs which he has not even heard before. And when the song stops, he turns around, looks at me and says, why did it stop? Keep playing it.

One day I sat next to him with a gospel song playing in the background. While listening to it he suddenly began to touch my feet as though he were pouring something on it. I asked him, what he was doing? He replied that he was washing my feet. In that moment, I realised he was seeing JESUS and was washing the LORD’s feet in worship. I told him that JESUS loved him. He wept bitterly and said, “I know, I love HIM too. He’s great.” Overwhelmed by the goodness of GOD, my father weeps when someone reads the word of GOD to him. Beloved, I realised many a times I allowed the enemy to fool me but now I know, even when nothing seems to be happening,our Heavenly FATHER is working behind the scenes and we must believe HIM and not the voices that discourage us or pushes us into disbelief. GOD not only brought my father alive from the hold of death but also from the hold of spiritual hell.

Daughter of the KING, let the joy of the Lord be your strength. One day, you will stand before the King with your loved ones and see how you not giving up made such a big difference!
