Father, thank You that the work You’ve given us doesn’t depend on our own abilities. It’s all dependent on You and our willingness to follow Your lead, no matter where You take us or what You ask us to do. Help us to trust that You’ve equipped us well and will always be with us. In Jesus’ name, amen.
