Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Squeezed To Obey - #4353
Our word for today from the Word of God begins with Jesus' parting instructions to His followers in Acts 1:8. "You will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." Now, guess which part of that they liked best? Right. Jerusalem. That was home. That was the familiar. I'm not sure they would have ever gotten beyond Jerusalem unless they were pushed, unless they were squeezed to go.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Bumpy Road to a Beautiful Destination - #4361
Actually, you may be navigating a very bumpy road in your life right now, and you're not enjoying this process much at all. And as you're having to really slow down and to absorb the shocks, it's tempting to turn back, isn't it? But God wants to remind you today of something it is easy to forget when the road is rough: there's something beautiful -- something worth it -- at the end of this difficult journey.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - No Conquest Without Risk - #4387
It doesn't just apply to reaching the top of a mountain - it pretty much describes everything worth doing in life. No risk, no meaningful conquest - a triumph without glory. Low risk, low return. High risk, high return. It's a principle that defines spiritual greatness - or spiritual mediocrity.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Riding to Glory - #4395
For most of us, our ride through this life will last, on average, about 70 years. Some will get more, some a lot less. The question is how much of a mark will you leave in the years you have left? Inside all of us is this deep desire to make our life count, a desire to do something significant while we're here.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Miracle Rush - #4622
You may think you're running out of time, but when God moves, it doesn't take much time. He delivered a nation in a night. It's like the old ketchup saying, "When I hit my ketchup bottle, first none will come and then a lot'll." That's how God works. It might take you a long time, but God can do in an hour what might take you 50 years. So don't panic just because it's taking longer than you thought.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Price of a Runner's High - #4623
Maybe you're running pretty hard right now. Be careful. There might be some damage you can't feel because of your runner's high. You may be unaware of a partner or a child who's being neglected and they're not yelling. They're not screaming for you. They're just quietly hurting and missing you. They've been left in your busy wake, and you can't feel it because you're running so hard. Maybe the people around you are getting stepped on, ignored, feeling used. Could it be that you've become a stress carrier without even being aware of it?

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Good News about a Cold Season - #4222
Most of us have lived long enough to see it happen - something good coming out of something that's difficult and unpleasant. If you're in a season in your life that's pretty cold right now, that may be an encouragement that would be good to remember. As you're feeling the chill of the moment, God is doing something that you're going to benefit from later on. Something that couldn't happen without this time of bitter cold.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - How Good Soldiers Go Down - #4718
In Rome many years ago, and among God's spiritual soldiers today, when you neglect your armor you'll go down to your enemy. If you belong to Jesus Christ, and especially if you are or hope to be making any difference for Him, you can be sure you have shown up on hell's radar. And a lot of the battles you're encountering right now are, at their core, spiritual attacks conceived in hell.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Only Impression that Matters - #4768
There's something very wrong if you are using Jesus to make a name for yourself or to impress other people with you. You're actually hijacking His glory. And there's something wrong if you're not telling people about Jesus because of something about you. It's not who's doing the telling that's the issue, it's who you're telling about - the One who offers the greatest love in the world.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The High Price of Running - #4818
If you tend to be a Jonah - running from things instead of dealing with them - consider the incredibly high cost. First, you hurt the people you love. Second, like a runaway bride or a runaway prophet, your running stirs up consequences you never dreamed of. Thirdly, you end up where you never dreamed, in a situation far worse than the one you were running from. And your running has given you no more answers, just more problems.
