[The LORD] takes no pleasure in the strength of a horse or in human might.

Psalm 147:10

Zechariah 4:6

It is not that we think we are qualified to do anything on our own. Our qualification comes from God.

2 Corinthians 3:5

All glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.

Ephesians 3:20

GOD GIVES US special abilities to advance his Kingdom here on earth. Perhaps he has given you leadership ability, made you unusually compassionate, or given you a heart that delights in encouraging others. Your abilities are unique because he chose to give them specifically to you. Abilities give you the potential to do good, while faith gives you the power. Neither potential nor power alone is sufficient; they must work in harmony. If you don’t know what your special gifts are, ask him! He promises to answer. Pray for opportunities to use your abilities, and trust God to bring them into your life. All you need to do is wake up each day with a willing heart, be faithful to obey his promptings, and watch God do more than you could ever ask or imagine through your willingness.
