Enable

“Enable” – defined as to make someone able to do something, or make something possible.

Anything worthwhile that we have accomplished, we were enabled by God to do.

Through the Apostle Paul, God clearly informs us, “We don’t have the right to claim that we have done anything on our own. God gives us what it takes to do all that we do.” (2 Corinthians 3:5, CEV).

Let us repeat this truth to ourselves and for our friends close and far away,
“We don’t have the right to claim that we have done anything on our own. God gives us what it takes to do all that we do.”

Anything worthwhile that we have accomplished, we were enabled by God to do.

Who, then, deserves the glory, all of it?

God does.

Humbling, is it not?

Perspective altering, is it not?

So when no one seems to notice our efforts, we can be at peace.

We are instruments who are privileged to be enabled by God to do what He has called us to do. 

May His be the only approval that we seek.

I am joining (on a Monday) the Five Minute Friday writing community, hosted by Kate Motaung, for our weekly writing adventure. Please click here to learn about Five Minute Friday. This week’s prompt is, “Enable.” The definition of “enable is from the Cambridge Dictionary.
