Many of us can relate to the biblical story of Joseph. “There’s something alluring about a story for all of us, and especially one with so much drama as [his],” says business mentor and author Linda Fields. She adds, “I think another reason we love it is because we all feel like we’ve been in a pit.”
But Fields sees something even more insightful in this popular story, she says on The Linda Fields Show on the Charisma Podcast Network. “Getting revelation is what we’re talking about, getting counsel from the throne room. I really felt like the Lord wanted us to identify with Joseph’s story and the trajectory of his life to get ready to entertain [the idea of] how to receive revelation.”
Fields has, she says, five P’s about how to bring impact on your life, all based on the story of Joseph. The first is the word “promise,” she explains. As a young man, Joseph received a promise and a dream from God. “When we have a dream, there’s an opportunity to embrace it, steward it, interpret it, unpack it, that you don’t necessarily have to take God up on,” Fields says. “And I’m big on stewardship: stewarding a dream through a prophetic call. … Joseph didn’t just have a dream; he received a dream into his DNA.”
