Have you ever felt disconnected in your calling, as though your professional life and your spiritual life didn’t quite match up?
You’re not alone, says host Linda Fields on the “Linda Fields Show” podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network. The Old Testament patriarch Joseph experienced this in both the prison and the pit. And accessing his wisdom, she says, is part of what she calls “going to the counsel table of the Lord” for strategy and prayer.
Business strategist and intercessor Dean Briggs, her podcast guest, agrees that gaining access to supernatural wisdom is critical. “When [Scripture] talks about the prophets in the Old Testament, you see them talking about having access, kind of behind the veil, to dimensions of heavenly realities that are part of the birthright of the believer in the New Covenant, but it was only occasional in the Old Covenant.
“When we talk about the range of problems facing the earth, they are beyond human wisdom, yes, but they are not beyond the wisdom of the Lord. And … we can learn how to—by faith and practice and discernment and experience—understand that we’ve been given access into heavenly dimensions, heavenly realms, and that there are answers in the heart of God for the trials we’re facing today.”
Briggs again points to Joseph as an example of an average man who received unfair treatment but “his gift made room for him; he’s literally going from slave to second in command. And Pharaoh says, ‘Where can we find a man like this, who has the Spirit of God in him?’
“Every business professional has that potential to be in their sphere of influence, in their market, in their demographic, in their business, and have the Spirit of God in them in a remarkable way.”
