Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Why Your Big Bowl Suddenly Got Small - #5252
For us to have the better perspective, the closer walk, the inner power that Jesus wants to give us, He often has to slow us down and temporarily shrink our world.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - When a Planet Becomes Your Sun - #5284
There's some confusion about the fact that the planets revolve around the sun, not the sun around the planets. That's not just a scientific issue. It's a spiritual issue, too. Because too many of us have forgotten what is supposed to be the "sun" at the center of our life. We've put one of the "planets" of our life at the center, and in reality, everything is revolving around it. The Bible would call that a word we wouldn't like to accept - it's an idol.

Spiritual Journaling: Richard Peace
Recording Your Journey Toward God. Go back and understand the critical elements of your life—the events, relationships, patterns, and experiences that shape you—you will gradually find yourself viewing the future through the lens of conformity to the way of Jesus.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - God All Over Your Day - #3802
If you've ever been to one of those church meetings where they ask people to share their favorite verses, you've probably heard somebody mention our word for today from the Word of God. Proverbs 3:5-6 - it might be your favorite - "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding." Notice what's the opposite of trusting in the Lord with all your own heart--trying to figure it out for yourself, doing what you think is best...leaning on your own understanding.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Getting Left to Get Found - #3804
You're probably not a Girl Scout, and you're not stuck out in the woods, but it could be that you have been left...or you're feeling lost. A person you were counting on has bailed out...or maybe even died. Or something that has been one of your life anchors suddenly isn't there any more. You've been left out or left behind or left high and dry. And you're not sure which way home is. Because so much in life is temporary, it's only a matter of time before we all experience the pain of being left or being lost.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Filled with the Good Stuff - #3813
Now, my glass filled with water is actually a picture of one of the most powerful prayers you can pray for yourself or for someone you care about. In fact, it is such a good prayer that it's one of the relatively few that God thought should be included in the Bible so we could all read it. The basic thrust of this prayer is repeated several times as Paul tells us what he prayed for when he prayed for the important people in his life.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - A Thousand Teachers - #3823
Now looking at everyone you meet as someone from whom you learn something, that's an outlook that can make you a millionaire - spiritually, intellectually, emotionally. Our word for today from the Word of God actually defines major differences between a wise person and foolish person.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Lifting them Higher - #3825
When you have the spirit of Jesus, you look for those who are on the edges, who tend to be left out - and you lift them up by showing interest, including them ... by building their confidence. God also tells us to encourage the weak, the people who, on the surface, may not seem to have much going for them - but, if you give them a lift, they're the people who can find the strength to do what they're never done before.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Blowing the Lid Off - #3826
Paul says, "The God to whom we pray is one awesome God. And He can do so much more than we can imagine!" Which leads us to the kind of prayer that I learned to pray that night in the arena - the "blow the lid off" prayer. It's for those situations where the Holy Spirit seems to be saying, "I have more for you, much more." I'm convinced that we are often under-living because we are under-praying. We are praying under the mighty thing that God really wants to do.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - When You're Tired of Climbing - #3847
It could be that you're climbing a pretty steep slope right now. It's been a long climb - and as you look ahead, you've still got a long way to go - maybe spiritually, maybe emotionally, maybe in getting through a time of great pain or need - maybe in working through some family problems. And right now you're battling some discouragement, some feelings of giving up, some deep weariness. You're discouraged by how much is left to do - the amount of ground you still have to cover. And it may be bringing you to standstill.
