2 Corinthians 12:9

But when they have delivered you up, have no anxiety as to how you shall speak or what you shall say; for at that very time it shall be given you what to say;
for I will give you utterance and wisdom which none of your opponents will be able to withstand or reply to.
And remember that I am about to send out my Father's promised gift to rest upon you. But, as for you, wait patiently in the city until you are clothed with power from on high."
1 Corinthians 3:6
I planted and Apollos watered; but it was God who was, all the time, giving the increase.
1 Corinthians 15:10
But what I am I am by the grace of God, and His grace bestowed upon me did not prove ineffectual. But I labored more strenuously than all the rest--yet it was not I, but God's grace working with me.
For it is God Himself whose power creates within you the desire to do His gracious will and also brings about the accomplishment of the desire.
I have strength for anything through Him who gives me power.
Every gift which is good, and every perfect boon, is from above, and comes down from the Father, who is the source of all Light. In Him there is no variation nor the slightest suggestion of change.
