Life Is Not A Straight Line

Dear Someone,

I don’t know who this is for, but understand me well as I type these words.

Your current challenges are not there to kill you but to build you up. They are not there to stay but to pass. Your current challenges are not the most difficult thing you’ve ever had to face — acknowledge them but do not live in them. Your mistakes are your own mentorship, they are part of your story — they are not who you are.

Irrespective of the turns and detours in your relationship, stop wondering and asking if they ever really loved you. Irrespective of the detours that life has thrown at you, understand that where you are right now is where you’re supposed to be. Understand that “Sometimes, your ‘Plan B’ is really God’s ‘Plan A’. And your “detours” are all a part of His plan for your life.”- Dr Sorke.

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.

A New Beginning Is Coming 

Beloved of God,

​If this year has already been good for you, it’s going to get better. If it hasn’t been good for you, get ready, a new beginning is coming your way. Every piece and every part will fit together. You will go to places you have never been before. You will be at the right place and at the right time. No weapon formed against you will prosper. That evil plan, it shall be thwarted and taken away! Hidden things, they shall be revealed and uncovered.

In Him,
Ali Papa

James 5:16 (AMP) The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available dynamic in its working.

Don’t Lose Hope as You Wait

Beloved of God,

Whatever it is that you are going through today, God is saying, “it’s not going to take long”. Don’t lose hope as you wait. You are on the brink of a miracle. A turnaround is coming. Stand strong. You will experience things shifting quickly.

Don’t give up yet because of your circumstances! No matter how long you’ve been struggling and how tough it’s been, a turnaround is coming. If I can survive 7 years of silent hell and have a turnaround, you too can. If the man who is in jail for 15 years for wrongful conviction can have a turnaround, you too can. If a messed up man can have a turnaround and goes on to pastor a church in his home town where his past mistakes are public knowledge, you too can. 

A turnaround is coming for you if you will stay the course and stay in faith looking only to God for divine rescue. Your situation will not remain the same. No, things will not stay the same, but there will be a shifting and a changing in the days to come.

Be blessed!

@IamAlipapa.

ISAIAH 40:31 (MSG)
BUT THOSE WHO WAIT UPON GOD GET FRESH STRENGTH. THEY SPREAD THEIR WINGS AND SOAR LIKE EAGLES, THEY RUN AND DON’T GET TIRED, THEY WALK AND DON’T LAG BEHIND.

Your Season Is Here

Dear Someone,

GOD is about to give you a STANDING OVATION. God is about to SHOWCASE you. GOD is about to ANNOUNCE you to the world. Stay the course and on purpose. Something BIG is headed your way.

You may be in a dark season right now, but a TURNAROUND is coming your way, for which God wants all the glory! You’re about to TESTIFY. Your breakthrough is in arms reach. PEACE is in the valley. Hold on, a turnaround is coming. Greater is on the Way. A turnaround is coming. Stay FAITHFUL and be encouraged. Don’t shake. Don’t quake. God’s got you. What looks impossible RIGHT NOW, God is about to make it POSSIBLE and bring a MIRACLE!

In Him,

@IamAlipapa.

JOHN 11:43-45 (MSG)
43 THEN HE SHOUTED, “LAZARUS, COME OUT!” 44 AND HE CAME OUT, A CADAVER, WRAPPED FROM HEAD TO TOE, AND WITH A KERCHIEF OVER HIS FACE. JESUS TOLD THEM, “UNWRAP HIM AND LET HIM LOOSE.” 45 THAT WAS A TURNAROUND FOR MANY OF THE JEWS WHO WERE WITH MARY. THEY SAW WHAT JESUS DID, AND BELIEVED IN HIM.
