Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - How to go from the Basement to the Penthouse - #4455
Now, one of the secrets of peace in the midst of great stress, of poise when everything is up for grabs, of perspective when you could be freaking out - the secret is to start celebrating the kind of God you have.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - No Retreat, No Defeat - #4527
No matter how intense the battle, no matter how weary the warrior, no matter how overwhelming the odds - do not retreat! With the Word of God in your hand, with your brothers and sisters by your side, with the Lord your God fighting for you, it won't be you who retreats - your enemy is going down!

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - When the Devil Pulls Your String - #4554
Cowardice and criticism and negativity are contagious, and they're Satan's favorite tool to discourage a believer - another believer. Don't fall for it. One other string your enemy loves to pull: lies about who you are

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Your Best Weapon is Your Teeth - #4427
Our word for today from the Word of God comes from {bible}Nehemiah 2:1{bible}. Now, Nehemiah works for the king (he's the king's cup bearer), and he's pretty down because of news he's gotten about conditions back home. The Bible says, "I took the wine and gave it to the king. I had not been sad in his presence before. So the king asked me, 'Why does your face look so sad when you are not ill? This can be nothing but sadness of heart.'"

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Making it Through the Pain - #4563
You can lose your health, your business, your marriage, you can lose people you love and still not lose heart. How? First, remember these four letters - TTSP. They stand for, "This too shall pass." Your ordeal is, in Paul's words, "momentary" and "temporary" against the backdrop of your eternity in heaven. It won't always be this way.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - It Really Is "How You Play The Game" - #4406
Well, at least on God's team. That's why Jesus' finish line commendation for His players will be, "Well done, good and faithful servant" (Matthew 25:21), not "Well done, good and successful servant." What God cares about - what God rewards - is an all-out effort. The results are in His hands. The effort is in yours.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Gone So Long, But Home At Last - #4306
And deep down inside the soul of each of us is a longing for home that is hard to explain and even harder to satisfy. There's this spiritual homesickness - you can call it restlessness or incompleteness or just the absence of inner peace. Some who feel like they've never had a home think that they would have peace if they could find a home. But then those who've had a fair amount of love and acceptance are strangely homesick in their soul, too.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Fog Cannot Win - #4316
The fog never really stands a chance - it's no match for the inevitable victory of the sun - in a majestic mountain landscape, or in the dark moments of your life and mine. And it could be that you're in one of those seasons right now. It's been a time of loss, of grief, of doubt and confusion, of a prodigal loved one, of no answers. Maybe you've been walking through a fog where evil seems to be winning; where injustice seems to be prevailing. The fog has rolled into your life and obscured things you were once so sure of. It's covered the joy you once had with a sense of sadness and fear and even thoughts of giving up.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Star Wars - And Our Wars - #4364
Spiritual power you can harness to help you win battles that you can't win with your own resources - that's actually a pretty interesting idea. Of course, our battles aren't about storm troopers or villains with light sabers. We're trying to make a marriage work, to be the parent our child needs us to be, to beat the personal monsters of anger, depression, addiction, selfishness, loneliness.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Flying Through The Dead Zone - #4386
Now you may never fly an airplane, but you probably know about navigating life's dead zones - those times when it seems as if heaven is silent, answers just aren't coming, no one seems to understand, and your feelings are either blah or they're all over the map. It's a lonely season. Maybe it's what you're flying through right now in your life journey.
