Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional January 28th – Competent For Any Task

(The Grace For Excellence Is Yours!)

TO THE BIBLE: 2 Corinthians 9:8
“And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.”

Every Christian has the grace to excel in everything. God is able to direct all the grace you require for anything in this life towards you, such that you’re never behind in competence or ability.

You’re qualified for any task; that’s what it means to have “all sufficiency in all things”; it means you have all the competencies and special skills required for excellence in every good work.

The word translated “sufficiency” in 2 Corinthians 9:8 is the Greek “autarkeia” which means competence. This indicates a state of self-sufficiency whereby you require no aid or support.

God has given you a life that makes you so competent that you don’t require any help! You can be competent in all things—school, in your family, and daily pursuits.

Also, another word for the word “sufficiency” in 2 Corinthians 3:5 is the Greek “hikanotes,” which means ability: “Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God….”

This means that the ability of God has been made available to you. No wonder Apostle Paul concludes in Philippians 4:13 as he said: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

You too have been specially enabled to live supernaturally to the glory of God because it says your sufficiency, your ability, your “hikanotes” is of God. Refuse to function with your human ability; rather, function with divine might.

That’s what you’re going to do throughout this year: use supernatural ability. You can do all things through Christ!
