Christian reality star gives away all of her possessions following call from God

by Heather Preston

A Christian actor and influencer says she felt prompted by God to give away all her belongings in celebration of her birthday.

Khafi Ekpata announced to her 1.4m Instagram followers that everything, other than her baby boy and the bare essentials were up for grabs to mark the special occasion.

The new mum turned 32 on Wednesday.

Speaking to Premier Khafi, who also presents Premier Gospel's Naked Love podcast, explained that she felt God speak to her whilst she was in her bathroom the day before her birthday.

"I was just having a shower thinking, what should I do for my birthday? Normally, I don't really celebrate my birthday so much. I kind of like thank God for the year, and I have some quiet reflection. But, I just heard it very clearly - just give everything away."

Fans were instructed to direct message the star to receive a location and time to help themselves to anything from clothes and make-up to books and furniture.

When asked how she feels about letting go of so many possessions, Khafi said that although it was nerve-wracking, she was excited to trust God for the next chapter of her life.

"I feel like God is just making way for the new in my life. 

"I've acquired all of this stuff over the years and by God's grace he's provided and given it to me, but I feel like God was just going to do something new in my life and I'm really excited."

Khafi, aka A Cup of Khafi says a sermon she heard by American preacher Michael Todd gave her the faith to trust God in her decision to give.

"[The sermon] was all about sowing seeds in all areas of your life. So then when I heard that, I felt like that message had already primed my soul for what God was going to ask me to do," she said.

Ultimately, Khafi says she hopes her step of faith will bless others: "A lot of the time we think that we don't have anything to give but actually I feel like God is just showing us that actually even with the little that we have, (you know the parable of the loaves and the fish) he can multiply, he can do good with it. So I just really pray it's a blessing to others."
