Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Getting Worse So You Can Get Well - #5396
Sometimes our symptoms have to get so acute, so painful that we just have to finally go to find what's wrong, and to be healed by the only One who can heal us. And that's very important, because our condition is terminal - forever.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Renewing Fire - #5407
What kind of new life does God bring out the flames? For one thing, He helps us focus the rest of our life on the things that really matter. Everything in our lives goes in one of two columns - the stuff that matters and the stuff that doesn't. And a lot of times we get those confused, don't we? The times of struggle and loss help us get everything in the right columns. So many people emerge from the fire more committed to the eternal than they ever were before.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Rescue Ready - #5429
You can't do anything about those missed opportunities, and we all have plenty of those. But you can make up your mind that you're going to do what you have to do to be ready for rescuing from now on. "Like what?" you say. Like thinking through how you would explain what Jesus did in the kind of non-religious words that a lost person would understand. Talk about life's most important relationship - not a religion!
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - How to Get Rid of Your Heavy Burden - #5431
When you bring a lifetime of selfishness and sin and hurt to the cross of Jesus, you can leave it there forever. You walk up to that cross dirty - you walk away clean! And the feeling of being clean inside may be something you've needed for a long time, and it can start today.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - A Breath of Spring in the Cold of Winter - #5437
The problems are still there, but God's joy and God's peace are the wind beneath your wings that enables you to soar when otherwise you would be grounded. You get that joy and peace "as you trust in Him" - not in your feelings, not in what humans can do, not in what you can see, but in Him. It may be winter all around you, but it will be spring inside you!
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Missing the Turn that Saves Your Life - #5455
You may know a lot about a lot of things, but there's nothing more important in all the world than to understand the turn that will keep you from God's punishment and take you to God's heaven.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Seeing the Need Behind the Deed - #5468
Step back from their bothersome actions and ask God to help you see what He sees when He looks at them, including the needs that are driving their deeds. Instead of just reacting to their deed, do something about their need.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Copying Daddy - #5516
Stuff we hated when we were growing up. Stuff we swore we'd never do when we got older. Stuff we're doing and stuff we're becoming in spite of ourselves. And now, another generation is about to experience the same kind of hurt and damage that you did because you can't stop what you can't stand. But there is Someone who can.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Inside Information on What's Ahead - #5535
The Bible says that every one of us has defied the order of the universe by, in essence, saying to God, "You run the universe and I'll run me, thank you." And we've taken our life where we wanted it to go, done what we wanted to do, and then maybe we've tried to pacify God with a little religion that in no way can pay the death penalty for a lifetime of disobeying God.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Giving it to Your Guard - #5537
Ask God for the Jesus grace to not retaliate when the harshness is just being hurled at you. Don't answer it. Don't stoop to their level and become like them. The Bible says a soft answer turns away anger.
