"Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God."  2 Corinthians 3:5

If you really concentrate on this verse it is quite amazing.  It should give you comfort where you feel you are lacking and humble you if you are proud.  We are not sufficient of ourselves.  All this talk in the know how it goes...that we can do anything if we put our mind to it.  But this verse says likewise.  It says that our sufficiency is from God.  Therefore, should we dare to glory in ourselves?  All of our abilities, our accomplishments, etc. are a blessing from Him.  The good that we accomplish is His handiwork.  Let us therefore be amazed and praise Him from whom all blessings flow.

Father, only through you am I sufficient.  I thank you for blessing me with gifts that I may glorify your name.  In Jesus name - Amen.
