Today, It’s Donald Trump 


Dearly Beloved,

“God doesn’t have favorites” – 1 Peter 1:17 (CEV). He bestows favor, not favoritism. He does everything for a reason. Today, it’s Donald Trump. Glorious things are spoken of you today too. God is with you no matter what. He is for you and not against you.

What he does for others, He will do for you. What He did for Boaz and Ruth, He is able to do for you or anyone connected to you this year. May all your prayers come true in Jesus Name! – Ruth 4:13.

May God “give you a good life”. May He cause you to possess your possessions. May He “make you more prosperous and numerous than your fathers”. May He restore you to favour – Deuteronomy 30:5 (MSG). Amen!

In Him,
~Ali Papa.

Life Is A Fight 

Beloved of God,

Life’s a fight. You fought at least one in 2016. This is 2017 now… the devil has been defeated according to His Word. Stop trying to defeat him. What you have left is the fight of faith, and it’s a good fight! I encourage you to stay up, stay hopeful and stay faith-filled because you are not without help. 

Job 22:27-29 says, God will answer your prayers… He will do WHATEVER you ask, and life will be bright for you. When others are saying that there is a casting down, your testimony will be that there is a lifting up. 

This year is not the time to start blaming yourself or your family for your situations. God that has seen and has heard. He is the God that will answer your prayers.  HE will carry you and all yours. He will stand by you and fight for you. HE will defend you and open mighty doors for you. 

Challenges will come, weapons will be formed and fashioned against you but you will never know failure nor sorrow. Press harder and fight a good fight of faith. As you do, God will answer your prayers. He will do whatever you ask. He will help you carry your burdens from now and forever. HE will end the era of sufferings permanently in your life.

You will dream good dreams and they will come to pass this year. God will restore you to favor and to a higher position – Genesis 40:9, 13, 21 (TLB).

In Him,
Ali Papa.

Don’t Be Worried 


Have faith in God. Don’t be worried and don’t let your heart be troubled or distressed – John 14:1.

Believe in yourself and never be embarrassed to have faith in God. Irrespective of whatever it is that you have been through, rest knowing that afflictions shall not arise a second time. He will see you through. May you have help today in that matter – Romans 8:26.

In Him,
Ali Papa.

For His Name Sake

Beloved of God,

Many are the afflictions of the righteous but count them all joy because God is on your side. The year might not have started well for you but God is rooting out for you. Stop listening to the lies of the devil, God wants you to be successful and free from those challenges for His name sake.

Psalms 23:3 (AMP) says, “He refreshes and restores my life (my self); He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake”.

For His Name sake, for the sake of His reputation, God is about to restore you back to favor. He is about to restore your strength and your soul. He will refresh you with new ideas. He will lead you through the right paths. He will cause you to arise for His name sake. For His name sake He will prepare a table before you in the presence of your enemies. He will anoint your head with oil.

It doesn’t matter in which street of life or valley you are in, keep trusting, keep trying, keep learning, keep loving, keep growing, keep praying and keep praising Him. The Lord will do a new thing in your life this year not because of you but for His name sake, for His reputation. In the days of Daniel, the lions’ mouths were shut for HIS name sake. In the days of Moses, He took a people out of the nations for His name sake. This is your day now, God can and will do anything that you desire for His name sake.

No matter what you are going through, God will make sure you come through for His Name sake! It doesn’t matter what is happening to you, you belong to God, He will never allow you to be disgraced for His name sake. Whatever the circumstances and no matter how dark everything looks, He is bringing you out of it for His name sake. He doesn’t want you to die from that sickness. He wants you healed. He wants you to succeed for His Name sake.

“May all the gifts and benefits that come from God our Father, and the Master, Jesus Christ, be yours” – 1 Corinthians 1:3 (MSG). May you have a closure to every difficult problem. May God give you a great victory for His name sake. May He give you that job for His name sake. May He restore and completely make you well for His name sake. May He manifest Himself in your impossibilities in Jesus Name.

In Him,
Ali Papa.

Hold Your Peace

Beloved of God,

Stop asking God how many more challenges you have to face before He can restore you to your place of rest. Life is not an easy road. You will meet challenges here and there but you can go through them because God will always send you help. When God wants to bless you, He sends a person into your life to restore you to favor.

God didn’t bring you this far to leave you. You have come too far and sadness shall neither define nor confine you anymore. God will finish what he started in you. He will not give up on you. The Lord can turn your mourning and sorrow into joyful dancing. He can take heaviness and depression and replace it with His joy. He can take a school drop out and turn him into a billionaire. He can take a nobody and makes him somebody.

Your situation might look dead but God can resurrect it! Your dreams might look dead but God can resurrect it. Your marriage or business might look dead but God specializes in things that seem impossible. He can give it a new life. He had the power to breathe in new life into them. In the eyes of men, you may look dead, but not with God. He is about to wake something up. Psalm 30:5 says, “At night we may cry, but in the morning we will celebrate!”

Hold your peace. Keep your faith and keep talking the Word. David said, “11 You have turned my sorrow into joyful dancing. No longer am I sad and wearing sackcloth. 12 I thank you from my heart, and I will never stop singing your praises, my LORD and my God” – Psalms 30:11-12 (CEV).

Let that be your testimony too. Let that be your daily confession in that situation. God will cause you to see things differently. He will make a way where there seems to be no way. He can do far beyond what you can imagine or ask Him for.

Remain faithful to His calling on your life and be blessed.

In Him,
Ali Papa.

Don’t Rush It!

Beloved,

When the time is right, God will show up for you. You will know when you see that open door. When the time is right, God will let you know. He will let you have it. When the time is right, God will make it happen. He will handle it accordingly. When the time is right, God will send you a man or woman that deserves you. He will provide. When the time is right, God will bless you with a baby and the right person to go on that journey with.

Don’t rush it. Trust His perfect timing. God will show up for you. He will answer your prayers.

“I am the Lord; I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall be performed (come to pass); it shall be no more delayed or prolonged” – Ezekiel 12:25 (NIV)

In Him,
~Ali Papa.

Your Place In Christ 

Dearly Beloved,

Situations don’t last for long. It doesn’t matter if your situation is a temporary one, a tough one or a bad one, they won’t last for long. If you are in Christ, that situation you are in will not last for long. Your conditions are changing. You only need to be in Him.

The Bible didn’t say in 2 Corinthians 5:17 that if any Jew, American, African, Asian or Caucasian man is in Christ, It didn’t say if any professor, medical doctor, president or Attorney General is in Christ, It didn’t say if any Pastor, Deacon or Pope is in Christ; It said IF ANY MAN [irrespective of his profession, background, nationality, mistakes] IS IN CHRIST [meaning Christ is a place], HE IS  [he is not going to be, he is not about to be, he is now] in a new world [a new creature]: the old things [cancer, poverty, depression, barrenness, sins, etc], have come to an end; they have truly become new.

So in whatever situation you are in today, be comforted and be encouraged. Know who you are and where you are in Christ. The darkest nights produce the brightest stars. So have faith and be strengthened, the good is just around the corner – 2 Corinthians 13:11-12, 14.

In Psalm 23:1, David didn’t say the Lord WILL be his shepherd, he didn’t say he is in want and lack a job or good health. He said: “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want”. You need to know who you are too. You need to know the power that is at work in your life. Once you do that’s when you’ll feel a supernatural lift, an anointing that will help you accomplish what you could not accomplish on your own.

Lay claim, in faith, to whatever you need today. Take it away from the devil in Jesus’ Name – Philippians 2:10. That money, that job, that promotion, that property, that contract, name them…, they belong to Jesus (and to you as His joint heir.) – Romans 8:17.

Be Blessed!
Ali Papa.
