Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - What the Hard Times Reveal - #8286 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters
I was speaking recently for some business leaders in Manhattan–the epicenter of America’s devastating financial quake. One highly successful Christian brother told me the surprising truth that the hard times have revealed. He said, “A few months ago, if you’d asked any of us what we were depending on, we would have said we were totally depending on God. Until we lost a lot of the things we were really depending on.”

I’m Ron Hutchcraft, and above you and me is unlimited power—the power of Almighty God; power great enough to energize and hold together the whole universe, to create the universe with a word, to destroy the universe in an instant.

I’m Ron Hutchcraft, and I decided I want to be like Mr. Cedar Tree. Well, in a word—resilient. No matter how hard the hit, no matter how heavy the load, resilience is the ability to bounce back.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - What God's Up To In Crazy Times - #9195 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters
Maybe you remember when a major earthquake shook the San Francisco area back in 1989. It was strong enough to break the Bay Bridge and create traffic headaches for months. The Golden Gate Bridge literally has one leg on the San Andreas Fault, but it was undamaged by the same quake. The reason? The Bay Bridge was built rigid all the way through. The Golden Gate is solidly anchored, but it’s built to flex when there’s a whole lot of shakin’ going on.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Slow Down for Construction
These words present a beautiful scene, but there are some potentially troubling words here: "He makes me lie down..." We tend to slow down rather unwillingly, but God has a lot of ways of putting on the brakes. God can use one visit to the doctor, a child who is in crisis, an emergency in the life of someone we love, or bad financial news as brakes to slow us down. It could be a dramatic change that we never could have anticipated. The brakes are different, but the result is the same—we get slowed down.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Pieces and Masterpieces
Genesis 50:20 from God's Word says, "You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives." Joseph is speaking to his brothers who left him in a pit and sold him into slavery. Now he is second-in-command of Egypt, saving their lives with the food program he has developed. Up close, this looked like tragedy but when you look at the big picture, it was the tapestry of God.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Hands Tell It All
Isaiah 49:15-16 from God's Word says, “Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you! See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands.” That lady gave away a picture of worn, wrinkled hands. You could see that those hands had obviously worked hard for a long time. That is how she wanted to portray her life.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Reservation Tested
Luke 4:1-4 tells the familiar story of the temptation of Jesus. It says, “Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the desert, where for forty days he was tempted by the devil. He ate nothing during those days, and at the end of them he was hungry. The devil said to him, ‘If you are the Son of God, tell this stone to become bread.’ Jesus answered, ‘It is written, Man does not live on bread alone.'" There are two more temptations that come right at Jesus, and He answers each time with the Word of God. When the devil finally gives up and leaves, it says in Luke 4:14-15, “Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him spread through the whole countryside. He taught in their synagogues, and everyone praised him.” That was the beginning of the public ministry of Jesus Christ.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Mission Impossible Prayer
Nehemiah prayed a mission impossible prayer. His prayer in Nehemiah 1 changed the course of history, because that Jerusalem wall was rebuilt in fifty-two days under Nehemiah’s leadership. We can get a happy ending to our mission impossible by praying like Nehemiah.
