Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - When Daddy's on Deck - #4641
Will the company decide it? Will the economy decide it? Is this disease going to have the final word? Your mate? Your feelings? Or is everything in this situation totally under the authority of your Savior, Jesus Christ? Yes or no. If it is, and you make that your bottom line, the panic is over.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - When the Eagle Can't Fly - #4651
If we can grasp how it is that an eagle in crash mode renews his strength, we'll understand how we can renew ours - and then "soar on wings like eagles." Just picture that usually strong eagle, sprawled out powerlessly, eyes focused on the sun, and his body and spirit soaking up its strength. He totally gives up in order to gain strength. The law of God's renewing work is simple - you have to surrender to get strong.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Taking it to the Boss - #4206
Authority is really the decisive factor in getting anything done - putting it in the hands of the person who is in charge. Now that is a fundamental secret of getting things done when you pray! Those who understand that mountain-moving faith is about realizing Who's in charge are people who pray with power and who get results.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Surprising Secret of Greatness - #4213
If you've listened much to what Jesus says about leadership, these recent "discoveries" shouldn't be a great surprise to you. In Mark 10, beginning with verse 42, our word for today from the Word of God, Jesus presents what most people believe about being a leader - and then the truth according to Jesus.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Kidney Factor - #4672
It won't ultimately be your burdens that sink you, it will be your self-pity, or depression, or your bitterness, your anger, your fear. Jesus at your side can replace all that with His forgiving grace, His enabling strength, and His protecting power.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Settling for So Little - #4617
How often has God been ready to give us a bigger answer than we've ever seen, and we miss it because we've only got this "eight-inch pan?" It's time to blow the lid off your prayers by trusting your God - within the perimeters of His perfect will - for something only God could do!

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Disproportionate Power - #4707
Let's say you're a battlefield reporter. On one side you have a force of a thousand people. On the other side, one little guy. Who's going to win this? If the Lord God is fighting for that one guy, you will see the thousand running for their lives. That is disproportionate power. A biblical principal that opens up otherwise unthinkable possibilities for you, your family, for your ministry, for your church.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Sweet and Sour Strategy - #4247
When it comes to eating, sweet and sour can be great together. When it comes to the business of leading and shaping peoples' lives, it's that combination that can lead to some very positive results. It takes some sweet and it takes some sour to change people.

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."

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Poison Protection - #4265
Something like TV Guardian was invented for parents who realize a very important assignment that they have - to protect their children from anything that could harm them. Of course, a parent is going to protect their son or daughter from physical harm - like getting too close to the edge of a cliff or running onto the Interstate. But Mom and Dad have no less a responsibility for protecting their kids from things that can hurt their soul. And there's a lot of soul poison out there.
