Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - When Satan's Buttons Stop Working - #4867
I picture Satan sitting there with this big control panel in front of him with your name on it. I'm sure he's got one with my name on it, too. And he knows exactly what buttons to push to get you to respond as he wants you to. After all, he's been pushing your buttons for years and watching you dance to his music. He knows exactly what button to push to get you discouraged, to get you angry, to get you worrying, to get you defeated, to get you down on yourself or back to the old you. But hasn't he played with you long enough?

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Most Dangerous Time of All - #4877
There have been many Davids over the years; godly men and women who sinned or compromised in a way they could never have imagined. And it didn't happen on the battlefield. Many people go down spiritually during their "down" time - those times and places where we're relaxing, where we lower our guard, where we become spiritually careless. David's experience would suggest that the time when you feel safe and relaxed may be your most dangerous time of all.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The "I Can Handle it" Trap - #5049
Don't underestimate temptation and don't overestimate your strength.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Reservation Tested - #5104
Do you remember a time like that; a season of your life when the Lord was so dramatic in the way He revealed himself when He spoke to you? There's no doubt that He's there. Okay, now that's the beginning. The end of the cycle comes with the Spirit triumph.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Turn Around, Don't Drown - #5136
"Turn around, don't drown" is pretty good moral advice, too. I've known way too many people who thought they could handle the temptation, handle being around some stuff that could bring them down, handle flirting with what they should have been fleeing. And they have suddenly found themselves in deeper than they ever imagined - way over their head. And morally, spiritually, they have drowned.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Prize And The Prison - #4046
That's what the police call a "sting operation." And it really worked - offer something good just to capture people. And the police use that strategy to accomplish good things. Satan has been using that strategy for a long time to accomplish his destructive purposes in people's lives. He may be using his sting operation to capture you right now.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Shower Of A Lifetime - #4064
So many of us carry inside the awful burden of the mistakes we've made in the past, or the people we've hurt, the wounds we've inflicted, the damage we've done. There are regrets and guilt that weigh us down - maybe for some destructive choices we've made or some compromises or some sin we wish we could go back and erase. Sometimes it can feel disgusting - like all that dirt that covered our son that day. We wonder if there's any way to get clean, to finally be free of the weight, the dirt, the guilt, the shame.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Losing It Gradually - #4088
There's another thief who operates with that same modus operandi - Satan. He wants to steal from you your closeness to God and all the benefits that go with doing things God's way. He is, the Bible says, the "roaring lion, looking for someone to devour" (1 Peter 5:8) and the "thief" who comes "only to steal, kill and destroy." (John 10:10)

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Who's Holding the Club That's Hitting You - #5277
Satan wants to hit you hard enough that you'll run back to that old habit, that old escape, that wrong relationship, that old attitude. He's trying to drive you onto a spiritual detour like a cattle drover tries to herd his cattle. Once you're on that detour, he knows he can take your farther away from God's plans than you ever dreamed you would go.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - What Really Upsets Jesus - #5283
You’ve been doing things with your body that damage it. Maybe things that dirty it, because you’re dragging the Holy Spirit of God into everything you do with that body of yours - which isn’t yours! Have you been doing things that degrade His temple or devalue it in some way? Have you been using His temple to gratify yourself, to do things that He died to keep you from doing?
