So expect a miracle! The Power of Powerlessness - #6831 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-hard-times/the-power-of-powerlessness-6831 2013-03-18T10:47:45-05:00 Right now you have the opportunity to run and wrap yourself around your Heavenly Father like a desperate child. And in that complete dependency His power takes over unobstructed by your efforts to do it. It's all God; it's none of you, because there's no more of you left to fight. And at that moment you are more powerful than you have ever been - powerless but powerful. Who Scores the Points? - #6818 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-mission/who-scores-the-points-6818 2013-02-27T09:43:56-05:00 Success is not something you achieve; it's something you receive from God. You faithfully do your part, but it's a gift from Him to you. You're the instrument. You're not the musician. The instrument gets no credit. You're the glove; you're not the hand. The glove can't do anything. The hand in the glove does it all. Addicts Need a Meeting - #6804 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-personal-power/addicts-need-a-meeting-6804 2013-02-07T09:38:35-05:00 Now, our support group is a support person. We cannot stay away from sin unless we have our meeting - yeah, our meeting with God - regularly. The day you skip your meeting is the day you start to slip. We're not talking about some legalistic ritual where you have check the box Christianity: Read my Bible and prayed. No, not doing your duty. It's a love thing. Fighting it Early - #6694 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-personal-power/fighting-it-early-6694 2012-09-06T09:50:52-05:00 General Douglas MacArthur said, "The history of failure in war can be summed up in two words - too late. Too late in comprehending the deadly purpose of a potential enemy." Now, think about this in terms of sinful thoughts: Too late in realizing the mortal danger, too late in preparedness, too late in uniting all possible forces to resist it. First, Breathe It Yourself - #6659 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-most-important-relationship/first-breathe-it-yourself-6659 2012-07-19T17:42:26-05:00 The biggest single answer for your child's weakness is to let Christ transform that weakness in you. He has redeeming grace for your son, for your daughter. But first, breathe it yourself. Super Donkey - #6653 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-most-important-relationship/super-donkey-6653 2012-07-11T10:50:46-05:00 The finger of God may be reaching down from heaven and pointing to something or someone that we're holding tightly. And He's saying, "The Lord needs it." When the Kids All Agree - #6633 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-personal-power/when-the-kids-all-agree-6633 2012-06-15T10:33:58-05:00 I've asked young people before, "How many people are in your prayer triplet?" The answer - four. Because Jesus said, "You can see three, but I'm right there." So don't just pray for people. Pray with people. Don't say, "I'll pray for you." Put an arm around them and pray right there. Get a regular team of partners together who agree on some things and be prepared to see mountains moved, and hearts changed, and answers discovered. Seldom a Lot, But Always Enough - #6593 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-hard-times/seldom-a-lot-but-always-enough-6593 2012-04-23T09:58:44-05:00 Take your assignment from God in 24-hour chunks. Count on enough grace for each day. My kids knew that their Father would see that they had what they needed that day. God's kids know their Father is much better than that. Easter - Up Close and Personal - #6583 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-most-important-relationship/easter-up-close-and-personal-6583 2012-04-04T11:34:24-05:00 I'm so glad the arms of Jesus are still open wide this Easter, to send those who know Him to "go and tell" those who don't, and to welcome one who's been searching for a lifetime to "come and see" His love and His power for themselves. Yeah, Jesus walked out of His grave that first Easter, and He's ready to walk into your life this Easter.
