Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - How to Burn Off Your Personal Fog - #4541
The fog's winning right now. What you need is the sun, and the sun is giving thanks. That means making a decision to focus today on what is rather than what isn't, to focus on what God has done in your life, to concentrate on answered prayer rather than not-yet-answered prayer, to go through your day on a God-hunt, looking for where He's at work.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - When the Plan Comes Together - #4433
A flawless plan, a leader who carries it out without explaining it, an amazing outcome when the plan comes together. Whoa, that's more than a scenario for some fictional TV show. It may well be exactly what is playing out in your life right now.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Silent Guys - #4308
Now if you ask most women, that's part of the problem in our relationships. This guy thing called "not much talking." Or at least not much talking about what's really going on inside us. Oh, we'll talk about work and sports and cars and "stuff." But too many men just don't talk much about what they're feeling ... about what they need ... about what's hurting, what they're hoping for, what's wrong.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Missing Ingredient - #4310
One missing ingredient made all the difference. You know, that's not just true of baking a cake. According to the Bible, there are two ingredients needed for relationships to work as they're supposed to. And things come out flat many times because one of these two ingredients is missing. In fact, if you're like most people, you're pretty strong in one of these ingredients, but a little short in the other one.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Open Window - #4313
That's one reason God gives us some very practical advice to avoid getting stuff you don't really want in your life. It's brief, it's to the point, and it's our word for today from the Word of God. Ephesians 4:27 says, "Do not give the devil a foothold." Or we might say, don't leave any window open that the devil could use to get in.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Never More Than You Can Carry - #4338
We all have some loads to carry -- that's the nature of life. And sometimes it's so heavy that it takes everything we've got to keep from dropping it or caving in beneath the weight. This might be one of those seasons of heavy burdens for you. I've got some good news for you -- news that's contained in our word for today from the Word of God in 1 Corinthians 10:13.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Peace in Daddy's Arms - #4339
Our granddaughter felt safe, not because she wasn't in the middle of chaos -- believe me, she was -- but because of the security she has being in her Father's arms. It's a kind of security maybe you can only wish for right now because everything around you is up for grabs.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Galaxies and the Groceries - #4595
Look at God with the wide-angle lens trained on Him. He's in heaven. His name is to be revered, hallowed, reverenced, and we should be driven to our knees by who He is. He's the God who rules a hundred billion galaxies, and when you pray, you are in the throne room from which it is all governed. Prayer should never be boring or wimpy, or trivial again when you know Who you're with.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Leaving Without a Fill-Up - #4602
We have to take time to get "prayed up" before we start running for Jesus. The prayer meeting needs to precede any other meeting. We have to be in His book, looking for His personal guidance. We have to get on our knees or our face and re-surrender to Him for that day, for that work. We need to come to a point of seeing that we're unworthy and powerless when it comes to doing anything for Jesus, and then let His power take us over.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Key that is Right in Front of You - #4634
The Bible says that "He carried our sins in His own body on the tree." The one you and I have sinned against stands ready to forgive every sin we've ever committed. He died to do that. This officer heard Jesus say then, "Today you will be with me in Paradise," to a thief on the cross next to Him. This Jesus has the power to take us to heaven with Him. It's ultimate peace to know that on the day your heart beats for the last time, Jesus is going to say to you, "Today you will be with me in Paradise."
