Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Unstoppable Plans of God - #5204
Now it may be that right now there appears to be no way things can turn out right. The money isn't there, your health isn't there, the relationship looks impossible, the job frustrations are mounting, the mountain isn't moving, and the answer isn't coming. It looks as if there's no way for things to work out, not enough time for an answer to come. But you belong to the God who, with the stroke of an evil man's pen, moved an empire to place His kids, Joseph and Mary, right where they were supposed to be.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Store Is Yours! - #4017
It's pretty exciting when the person who owns it all throws open his store to you. That's exactly what God has in mind for us when we pray to Him. The One who owns it all opens up His resources and says, "They're yours - for what you're facing right now." But so often we either neglect to go to the owner, or we go in asking for a single dip when He wants to give us so much more.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Taming the Final Frontier - #4019
I’d say that idea is close, but not the prize winner. The last frontier isn’t outer space – in fact, it’s inner space ... what’s inside you and me. Which includes our imagination, but plenty more. God’s view would seem to be that the “last frontier is the human heart.” That is the vast and violent wilderness that remains untamed inside us. And it’s usually the people closest to us who can attest to the fact that our dark side is alive and well – and yes, it’s untamed. They get to see and feel it all too often.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Living Between Trapezes - #4077
Now, that may be where you're living right now. One phase of your life is behind you; you're counting on a new one ahead. But right now you're in one of life's great "in between" times. So were the people God was advising in our word for today from the Word of God beginning in Jeremiah 29:5.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - How God Makes You a Masterpiece - #5249
We're all that shapeless lump of clay until we put ourselves in the hands of the Master Potter. Only the One who gave you your life can shape your life into what it was created to be.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Only Hope for a Dying Heart - #5256
We all have heart trouble - potentially terminal heart trouble - according to God. Even if you have perfect EKGs and cardiac test results, you may very well have the kind of spiritual heart trouble that can only be removed by the greatest Heart Specialist in the universe. Like David Letterman, if you don't allow the Surgeon to take radical action, your condition will be fatal - forever.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - What Does All This Make? - #5262
I think God's more interested in what you may become through the process than He is even in the result. So, don't just trust Him for the outcome, trust the process God is taking you through, too.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Dreams on the Scrapheap - #5300
Sooner or later, our path of dreams lets us down; it leaves us empty. That's when we might finally be ready to consider what God thinks will make our life make sense. Since He's the One who made you, He's the One who knows why you're here. It was the dream He dreamed for you even before there was a you! It's the destiny you were made for, lived out one meaningful day at a time.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - What to Ask a King For - #5302
Our praying is often just so predictable, so routine, and that is an insult to the God who's invited us to come to Him for "no small gifts." When's the last time you really believed God for some things that are so big that only God could do them?
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Your All-Access Pass - #5337
You may never have worn an all-access pass in your life, but if you belong to Jesus Christ, you possess the most valuable all-access pass in the universe. God has hung a pass around your neck that allows you to walk into the Throne Room from which the universe is governed - anytime. In fact, you have priority clearance.
