Power of Two: Strategic Pairing of Gifts and Callings


Ever wonder why God lines you up with certain people and not others?  God is strategic when aligning people’s gifts and callings.  The power of two extends to strategic business relationships.

There is power in combining the calling and resources of two unique people.  Check out where Isaiah 11:2 gives a description of several aspects of the Spirit of the Lord:

  • The Spirit of wisdom and understanding
  • The Spirit of counsel and power
  • The Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord

Notice they are mentioned in pairs.  By strategically pairing gifts and callings, God will take the effectiveness of your calling and increase it dramatically.

Godly designed matches

Husbands and wives can be a vitally important, specifically designed match to promote a key area of impact in God’s Kingdom.

This can mean that one spouse may take on a supportive role, enabling the other spouse to have a higher impact. Other marriages operate as a team.  In Luke 10:1, Jesus sent out seventy-two of His disciples to minister, purposefully sending them in teams of two.

Making sacrifices and providing stability so that another person may serve God is super powerful. Not all ministry couples share the role of being in front of crowds.

My story

My wife, Linda, provides emotional support that I lacked for years.  With her, I am now able to fulfill my higher calling.  Although she is not up front ministering with me, she brings wisdom.  I tend to operate in understanding the bigger picture of how things fit together.  She has counsel and I operate in power (remember Isaiah 11:2 above?).  There are many other areas where we complement each other’s gifts.

My challenge to you:

  1. Take a look at your own unique gifts, talents and desires.
  2. Now look at the people or businesses God’s surrounded you with right now.
  3. Where has God placed you to be matched up with the right people to increase your depth of knowledge, relationships, anointing?

God is increasing your power within this wonderfully crafted combination of you and another.  Flow with God’s grace in it.

Another happily-ever-after God story

I know a man in ministry who became a widower a few years ago.  God brought a woman to him who is much younger than he.  She had been divorced years ago and was waiting for God to bring a new marriage to her.  Their marriage was a strategically paired Divine Alliance.  As they came together, their marriage was for the purposes of ministry and expanding God’s Kingdom.  She is an intercessor, getting words of knowledge, while he has a prophetic gift.  They minister together.  As he teaches, she gets words of knowledge for ministering to people and for his writing.

Not all marriages will function this way, but there will be a dramatic increase in ones like this over the next few years.

Power of Two: Strategic Pairing of Gifts and Callings — 4 Comments

  1. Exodus 35:31 (NKJV)
    31 and He has filled him with the Spirit of God,
    in wisdom and understanding,
    in knowledge and all manner of workmanship,

    Deuteronomy 32:30 (NKJV)
    30 How could one chase a thousand,
    And two put ten thousand to flight,
    Unless their Rock had sold them,
    And the Lord had surrendered them?

  2. All that you shared is more confirmation to my marriage and how uniquely God brought us together and said you and you, I want you to get married and w/in ten weeks He had brought it all to pass.  He showed us early that He’d brought us together to grow us up and then use us for ministry for His plan . . . have many testimonies regarding this how we didn’t understand why each of us was so different and not the same. 
    It took a long time with our lives secreted in the Secret Place as He revealed His love and His purposes and plans to us until now we know that we know each of us is different but God fit us together uniquely so He could be glorified in and through us in the Last Days! 
    Thank you so much for sharing!

  3. Amen to that!  It reminded me of years ago the Spirit of God once revealed to us that “There is no perfect spouse, there is only perfect match.”

  4. I am a daughter of God standing and waiting for that Godly Designed match in both my professional and personal life.
    thank you for the encouragement.
    many blessings of God upon your life and ministry
