Seer prophet Jenna Winston has learned much about freedom in Christ. She left a life of homelessness and addiction when she came to Christ and experienced an immediate call to ministry.
A part of her calling she says, is to help people grow in their knowledge of how God wants to break them out of poverty mindsets and "into royalty, into everything that He says in the Bible that He's called us to. We're a royal priesthood, a holy nation," she says on a recent episode of Through the Eyes of a Seer Prophet on the Charisma Podcast Network. She realizes that growing up, she received an incorrect picture of Jesus. The picture of Jesus others painted for her, she says, was of "this kind of broke guy who walked from city to city. ... I never had the idea that Jesus was such an extravagant, loving God."
And so even when she raised support to attend Bethel's School of Supernatural Ministry, she says, she continued a poverty mindset. God had told her to focus on ministry, and she wasn't supposed to get a job. Yet she lived from month to month, ending up on food stamps, unable to pay her rent.
In that situation, she says, "I did what a lot us do ... I prayed for just enough. I begged, 'Lord, if You just pay my tuition. Jesus, if You would just pay my tuition, if You would just pay my rent, Lord,"—that's what I prayed. I begged for just enough. And that's what I got was just enough in the final hour.
"Well, how many times have you heard Christians and other people say, 'Oh, God always comes through in the final hour'? You know what? It's because we believe that so often, we expect and believe, to have to wait on God to the final hour, because we always want to believe that He's growing us ... how many of us have fallen into those belief systems?"
