Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Courage for the Unknown - #4351
It's amazing the difference your Father's hand can make when you're walking into the unknown - which is exactly where God may be leading you now. You've sensed His leading, and He's leading you out of the "tent" of your comfort zone, out of the light of the familiar and the safe, and He's leading you into some new territory for your family, your security, maybe for your career, your location, maybe your ministry. And the trail ahead is full of questions - maybe even bears.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Around, But Not With - #4357
There's something I've learned over the years from my relationship with Karen. It's easy to be around someone but not with him or her - like a couple watching a movie or TV. When you're just around someone, there's no real dialog, no real exchange, no real transaction, no real difference. I've done that with my Lord far too many times. Maybe you have, too.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - A Leader's Real Assignment - #4377
The first portrait of Jesus I can ever remember seeing as a child was one that portrays Him as the Good Shepherd, with His sheep following Him closely and one little lamb cuddled in His arms. Interestingly enough, now that I'm in Christian leadership, I realize that picture is supposed to be what I'm about. And you, too, if God has entrusted you with any kind of influence or direction in people's lives. You're template is supposed to be that of a shepherd - of whom people say, "He or she sure makes a person feel loved."

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Why You're Waiting So Long - #4378
OK, here's my guess. Your Heavenly Father is working on something for you that you're going to love, but you're having to wait for it. And it's a long wait. And it's driving you crazy. In fact, you may be starting to panic and considering doing it your way instead of waiting for God to do it His way and in His time. There are millions of His children, living right now with the consequences of their impatience, wishing for all the world that they had waited for God's answer.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Danger of a Drifting Light - #4570
Whether or not you realize it, there are people watching your light. It may be your child, your coworkers, a Christian brother or sister, family members, folks you minister with. And for any person in your world who does not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, you are the lighthouse or the lightship that may be their only hope of finding their way to heaven. If the light fails, if the light drifts, they will sail right into an eternity you don't even want to think about.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - When You Force it, You Break it - #4600
Right now, maybe there's something in your life that isn't working as you thought it should. Maybe the romance isn't there. Maybe you need to help God out a little bit, you think. Maybe the money isn't there and you need to figure out a way to help God with it. Maybe the future isn't working out the way you want it to. So, you're just going to try to make things happen. Please, don't Hagar. Don't force it. Hagar is a verb. Don't grab a wrong way to get a right thing done. You'll pay for that mistake for a long, long time.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - No Way There's No Way - #4650
Right now you might be facing a seemingly impossible situation and you're shaking your head like the Jews at the Red Sea and you're saying "No way." Then there's this unexpected whisper from God's heart to yours: "Way." He's just trying to assure you that He will make a way through mighty waters that seem overwhelming and unmovable - through the desert, a place where there seems to be no resources.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Dynamite Praying - #4211
A prayer meeting and an explosion. You know, maybe those should always go together. Consider the model prayer meeting in Acts 4, beginning with verse 24. It's our word for today from the Word of God. The powerful council that had arranged for Jesus' crucifixion has now ordered Jesus' disciples to shut up about Jesus - or else. Peter and John reported this to the believers - a very volatile situation. Here was their response.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Finding Out When You Need To Know - #4220
It's not uncommon in the military - you get your orders on a "need to know" basis. It's not uncommon in God's army either. In fact, it God's modus operandi. Of course, like the military on those ships with the mystery destination, we think we need to know right now! But our Commander reveals our orders when He thinks we need to know. He won't reveal your ultimate destination, but he'll always make sure you know what you need to do today.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - A Father's Legacy - #4248
And just in case someone asks, "How do you know that's what a father's supposed to be doing?" we can just look at Ephesians 6:4, our word for today from the Word of God. It says, "Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord."
