Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Why Your Load Seems So Heavy - #5088
We do worry - a lot. And in so doing, we carry a heavier load than we're designed and equipped to carry. God has promised to give what we need to carry today: daily bread, strength equal to your day, mercies new each morning, a cross to bear one day at a time, the renewing of our spirit day by day.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Pebbles in Your Shoes - #5149
I'm so glad that Jesus is a sparrow-counting, hair-counting, daily bread kind of Savior, aren't you? But I need to go to Him with the small frustrations! We could live much more victoriously if we would immediately go to Jesus for the grace He's promised us in the mini-messes - not just the big ones.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Test - Then the Lessons - #5173
You get the lessons first and then the test, right? Well, in school, maybe, but not in God's training program for your life. See, He approaches it in the reverse order. First, you get the test, then you get the lessons. And because you may be experiencing one of God's tests right now, that's something it will really help you to remember.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Problem with Looking at Yourself - #4003
Poor bird. When he just kept looking at himself, he got confused and disoriented - and he kept running into things. Just like us - when we get all focused on ourselves, that is. And maybe that's where you are right now - the stress, the hurt, the load has gotten you all focusing on yourself, maybe without you're even realizing it. And you may actually be fluttering around emotionally, feeling disoriented and discouraged, even crashing sometimes.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Sweetener - #4025
And that might be exactly what you need to be praying for right now. Actually, “crying out to the Lord for,” as Moses did. That’s not just a casual, trite little prayer. That’s a desperate cry to God for something so hard that only He can do it. Right now, you may be thinking of someone in your personal world who is bitter. There’s resentment, sarcasm, cynicism, anger, maybe unforgiveness. The good news is that God is the world’s leading Heart Surgeon – He can change a heart in ways that no human could ever dream. But you need to be faithfully, fervently praying for God to do whatever it takes to change the heart of that bitter person. Especially if that bitter person is you.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - How A Thermometer Becomes A Thermostat - #4084
What most of us would like to be is a thermostat - someone who controls the temperature in our situation. Your family sure needs for you to be a thermostat; if everyone's a thermometer, it's chaos there. The people you work with, your friends - they need someone who is under control, who doesn't go off with the stress, who's steady and caring and peaceful. Those thermostat people are rare - and valuable.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Big Man Behind You - #5264
Because of this all-powerful person who's with you, you can go on, you can tackle what's bigger than you are, you can challenge Satan's dominion, and you can beat what has always beaten you.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Facing Your Fears - #5332
Where's the issue you've been afraid to deal with? Like Paula, it could be some very painful things in your past, or a loss you haven't allowed yourself to grieve for, or some area in which you've refused to obey God's direction because of your fear of the unknown. Maybe there's a ticking time bomb in your marriage, in some of your children, or in your church. It could be you've got a fear of abandonment. But if there is any issue like these that you have been too afraid to face, you know that ignoring it doesn't make it go away. It never has.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Financial Bad News - #8021
It’s a good time for all of us to do a little security check, like a bare knuckles honest answer to the question, “What am I ultimately counting on for my security?” Because a life that matters is anchored to something you can’t lose.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Breakthrough Power - #8034
God is wanting to do much bigger things than we’ve been trusting Him for. Like me, maybe, you’re tendency is to over-worry, over-work and under-pray.
