Sometimes, believers reach a point in their lives where a paradigm shift must occur if they want to move forward, Pastor Mia Wright says. They must either take the initiative to make changes or continue to wallow in misery.
That's what happened in the biblical story of the woman with the issue of blood. After 12 years of suffering, she decided to touch the hem of Jesus' garment and be made well. She told herself, and the enemy, "Enough is enough."
This story inspired Wright, co-pastor with her husband of Fountain of Praise Church in Houston, to help shatter the ideals of her traditional upbringing where women had little to no voice in the church.
"We just have to get to the place in our lives that we say, 'I want something different, something I've never experienced before,'" Wright told Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of "Greenelines" on the Charisma Podcast Network. "All our lives we're trained to believe one thing, even if it's not what God wants for us.
"What do you believe? What do you believe God can do in your life? I want to trust God for something that He has told me about. Maybe it's a promise years ago that I haven't realized. We have to challenge what we think about those things so we can do it and see God's hand when we do it. When God begins to reveal his truth to us, we have to begin to open up our mindset to understand it and embrace it."
