Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Yesterday's Shame - Today's Victory - #4465
Never is that more dramatic when God takes the sinning you've done, or the sinning that was done against you, and makes it into a boomerang to hit the very devil who once used that stuff to bring you down. Now all that ugly becomes something beautiful in Jesus' hands, causing people to listen to you when you talk about Jesus, providing living proof of His power - and maybe even helping you climb a tower for His sake.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Your Mirror, Your Friend - #4494
The truth you keep running from never really goes away. Everywhere you go, you take you with you. God loves you too much to let you keep running, denying, and living a lie. So He's put someone in your life to hold up a mirror. Don't reject what the mirror is trying to show you. And don't blame the mirror - it's the message the mirror is trying to give you, not the messenger that's the issue.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Slowly - But Surely - Submerged - #4524
You've got to stop that killer strategy with the first look, the first date, the first lie, the first flirtation, the first thoughts of divorce, the first detour from God's Word. This is going to take you where you don't want to go - unless you stop it now. Before today's compromise gives birth to tomorrow's tragedy, run from it.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Never Forgetting What it Cost - #4528
Forget the cross, and you start feeling like trash again; forgetting how much Jesus thinks you're worth. Forget the cross, and you'll start settling for junk instead of holding out for the best that He died to give you. And if you forget the cross, you'll probably be ashamed of Him, ashamed to let people know you belong to Him and how they can belong to Him. But when I envision the shame He went through for me ... when I remember that He was not ashamed of me, even when it meant hanging on that cross, then how can I be ashamed of Him?

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Dark Closet - #4552
You've hidden it, but the sin and the price and the guilt continue to grow behind that door. It's going to be tough to open that closet and deal with what's in there. But it's going to be a whole lot tougher not to. It's haunted you. It's shamed you. It's shackled you long enough. Jesus is right there with you to help you open that door, and to once and for all get rid of the awful secret behind it.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Beautiful Scars - #4592
He turns trouble for us into comfort for others. He's the God of all compassion. He's the God of all comfort. If we open up our scars, and our hurt and our pain to Him for the rest of our lives, He gives us something to give other people who are hurting. In other words, in God's skillful hands, the ugly can become something beautiful.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Moving With the Quake - #4700
The Bible acknowledges that we will make plans; the question is whether those plans are rigid - if we're rigid about having it our way. That "but" after the part about our plans tells me that God has the right to pre-empt my plan, or delay my plan, or redirect my plan. After all, that's what "Lord" means. Often He leads us toward a certain outcome, only to surprise us with an interruption, or with the realization that He did want us on this road, but for a destination other than the one we expected.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - How to Banish the Darkness - #4807
Celebrate Jesus and you evacuate the devil, who can't stand even the name of Jesus. Because it is at that name that he and all his demons must one day bow in total surrender, because the devil's death warrant is signed in the blood that Jesus shed on the cross. So in those times when the darkness seems to be closing in, you can literally praise the darkness away.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Love That Cannot Let You Go - #4820
If we don't get rescued, we'll end up separated from God and His love forever. That's the penalty for spiritual hijacking - taking over a life that God was supposed to direct. So whether or not you realize the spiritual danger you're in, your only hope is a rescuer. And there is one - only one. He doesn't want to leave you lost.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Someone to Lead You Home - #5021
The only person who is equipped to lead you out of the guilt and the death penalty for your sin is the one who took all that guilt and all that dying on Himself. That's what Jesus did when He died on the cross. And then, He walked out of His grave under His own power! He's alive right now, and He's pulled up next to you today.
