Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Cannons of Fear and the Courage of Faith - #4769
Fear often keeps us from God's best - parenting out of fear, leading (or failing to lead) because of fear, resisting God's call or God's assignment because of fear, missing God's best because of fear of failure, leaving someone we know spiritually lost because of fear of sharing Jesus with them. Faith, on the other hand, focuses on the greatness of your Lord and reaches for His hand, and says, "I'll go if You're going with me."

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Waiting for Your Father - #4770
Some have been so disappointed, either by the father they had or the father they didn't have, that they've just let their hurt turn hard so they don't get hurt anymore. Others have become desperate, trying all kinds of relationships and experiences to fill the hole that only a father can fill, and they've ended up with scars and regrets and still no father. There's a special kind of loneliness, of emptiness, of loss when you've been waiting a long time at the door for that father who has never come. The father you need most, though, has come, and He's coming your direction this very day.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Orphan No More - #4786
Whatever you're in the middle of, Jesus has come to you today to bring you into His family. But He won't force His love on you. You need to choose it, which means recognizing that you really are in trouble with God because of your sin, and reaching out to Jesus as the only One who can rescue you from that trouble.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Homeland Security for Your Home - #4815
There is no home that is more secure than a home where Jesus Christ lives, and He wants to live in your home because you have asked Him to live in you.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - How a Father Builds a Son - #4832
When God trusts a man with a son, He is putting in his hands probably the most important building project of his life. If a man builds a mighty empire or a billion dollar enterprise and loses his son, can we call his life a true success? A boy will decide what the word "man" means based on the first one he knows and the one he knows best - his dad.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Hearing Your Child - #4112
If you're a mom or dad, you need to hear what the first deaf Miss America said about hearing - that you need to do whatever you have to do to be able to hear your children. Some of us parents whose physical hearing is just fine have often been deaf to what our children may be thinking, or feeling or needing.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Child Snatching - #4123
Jesus made this revealing statement about the devil's modus operandi - "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy." (John 10:10) And one thing that Satan tries to steal is the sons and daughters of people who belong to Jesus. In fact you may be listening today, knowing all too well the grieving of having a child who is away from the God you love. It's a spiritual kidnapping, and it hurts.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Nuzzles And Nips - #4125
Apparently, little horses need both - nuzzles and nips. So do little people. And sadly, too many parents are giving a lot of one to their child and not much of the other. Some give the nuzzles, but not the nips. Some are giving a lot of nips, but not many nuzzles. Even horses know that young ones need both.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Breathing the Air Your Child Needs - #4144
When it's crunch time on an airplane flight, you have to first get for yourself the oxygen you need as a parent, then you can give your son or daughter what they need. In these increasingly challenging days for parents and dangerous days for our kids, we have to breathe deeply what our children need so we can pass it on to them.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Pace Car In Every Race - #4147
Now our word for today from the Word of God goes back to the dawn of all human relationships and the birth of the family, and it reveals who God considers the pace car in life's races. Genesis 3:6 - "When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it." Here, in this awful moment, sin and death enter the world as Adam and Eve trespass the clear boundaries of God.
