Cocktail for Life – Grace – God in You – Inspirational Bible Verses

Grace Life John 10 10

In life we find ourselves in situations where we are overwhelmed, and with deadlines that are unattainable. It is in these times of crisis that we should always turn to God.

When it is crunch time and we are in dire straits we need to turn to our Creator, asking Him to work on our behalf. When you pray for God’s help, may I submit to you to allow God to become you. Allow your Redeemer to take you over, and to let His Spirit guide your thoughts and your actions. Allow the Lord to take over your mind and your speech. Let your tongue become mute, your mind blank, and let the words that preceded out of your mouth be spoken by His Spirit speaking for you. We are at our best when He is not only working for us, but in us.

There is human knowledge, and there is Divine knowledge. God’s knowledge is the cause of everything that is and will ever be. He knows and sees your situation and identifies the solution into being. What He knows, is – and what He thinks becomes reality. He thought creation into existence and He will think your problems into solutions. This is the way of grace. Trust him – when you are doing that, you are living the life of grace.

Philippians 2:13 – God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.

When we submit ourselves and allow God to work within us, this gives us the power and desire to do that which is pleasing in His sight. When we try to do things “our” way and affect our own destiny, we are destined for certain failure. It in our own human nature to try to take control of our own lives. We must submit to Him, and allow Him to carry out His will in our lives. This releases the power of the Spirit to do things in our lives that lead to success and we are in turn able to do that which pleases our Lord.

Ever patient and always faithful, God delights when we turn to Him in faith, submitting ourselves. By doing this we receive his grace and mercy and reconnect with his loving plan by placing our confidence in Him. Our heavenly Father gathers all of our thoughts, formed and unformed and aligns them into His proper channels.

As He guides our will, thoughts, mind and emotion into His design, we become recipients of His mercy as it overwhelms our lives for the good. This is the power of His grace. Humanity for centuries has tried to lift themselves into Heaven by the goodness they perceive within themselves, when they answer has been staring them in the face all along – Grace.  Grace has to be gulped down straight, not watered down, and with no ice. This is the “cocktail” for abundant life.

John 10:10 –  I have come that you might have life, and have it more abundantly.

  1. This is so awesome! I love the part where you write “When you pray for God’s help, may I submit to you to allow God to become you.” It’s so true, when we need Him most we should become His vessel! Thanks so much Darrell!

  2. Thanks. It’s what a needed this morning. I drank it down straight!

  3. “Grace has to be drunk straight, not watered down, and with no ice. This is the “cocktail” for abundant life.” Amen and amen! I love this. Blessings.

  4. Thanks brother, i see God thinking my problems to solutions right now, in fact i’m blessed.

  5. Yes Darrell it is True men/woman have battled for many years with their Carnal flesh but unless it is put to death we cannot live the Christian life.

    Paul shows us this in Romans 7 when He was battling with his flesh but he knew Jesus was the only way to be victorious, He has set us free so we won’t be slaves to sin, He lives His Live in us.

    Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

    Paul tells us in Romans 8 and other Scriptures how to put our flesh to death (Romans 8 :12-15-Colossians 3:4-6 -Galatians 5:24 -26) so we don’t sin, as we aim to be perfected in Love and as we see in the Scriptures below, we cannot sin when we are Born Again, yes we can’t earn our Salvation but we will show we have it, as we walk as Jesus walks, in The Spirit.

    John 8:34-36 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

    1 John 3:9 No one who is Born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been Born of God.

    1 John 3: 6-8 whosoever abideth in Him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen Him, neither known Him. Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous.

    1 John 5:18-20 We know that no one who is Born of God sins; but He who was Born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him.

    Christian Love in our Unity in Christ Jesus -Anne.

  6. Always appreciate your way with words Darrell, well said. “I must decrease so that He may increase”.
    Blessings brother.

  7. Just what the doctor ordered. Thy will be done Lord.

  8. Thank you for this word, Darrell. It has affirmed my path.
