Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Beautiful Things That Fall Apart - #4119
Maybe you've experienced that kind of disappointment in your life - not with jewelry but with relationships, your job, your dream, your accomplishments, or even your marriage. It was beautiful for a while, but then it just fell apart. It's almost like many of the things we depend on for happiness and meaning turn out to be hollow inside.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Too Tired To Drive - #4142
For some of us, that is the only way we will ever give up the wheel - to God, that is. If we're just too whipped, too beat up, too tired to drive. And we were never meant to control the direction of what's going on in our life. But we try, and we give God a major fight over the wheel; especially in areas of our life that really matter to us where we want control. Maybe that's why the pain is so great right now, the frustration so unrelenting, the load so overwhelming.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Supporting the Weak Spot - #4148
After forty days of not eating, I mean it's obvious that Jesus' weak spot was His need for food. And where does the devil aim his temptation? Well, of course, at Jesus' need for food! Notice Jesus' response ... a scripture verse that directly addresses the point where He was vulnerable.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Too Close to the Edge - #4853
Suicide is also the ultimate act of selfishness toward the people who love you. They'll never recover from the awful agony of this decision. Don't do this to them. And suicide is the ultimate waste of the life Jesus gave His life for. He didn't die on that cross just to have you throw away the life He gave everything for. One last thing -- suicide is the ultimate surrender to the devil who hates you.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Maestro at His Best - #4170
When did the master most powerfully demonstrate his skill? When he had the least to work with - one string. When does the Lord Jesus - our Master - most powerfully demonstrate how much He can do? When He has the least to work with. When our strings are broken and we have almost nothing left - that's when He plays His masterpieces.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Never Forget Who You're Fighting - #4172
Actually, that's an important secret of spiritual victory, too - never forgetting who your real enemy is. That's why the Bible warns us to be alert because "your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour." (1 Peter 5:8) We're told to "take your stand against the devil's schemes" because "our struggle is not against flesh and blood." (Ephesians 6:11-12) Now, it's easy to fall into thinking that we're fighting just people or problems or obstacles, but we need to keep our real enemy in front of us.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Feel Down at the Top - #4960
From adolescence through adulthood, we keep thinking what we're looking for is just over that next hill. But no matter how many hills you've climbed, the peace and meaning wasn't there, was it? You need to climb one more hill - the one with that cross on the top where Jesus is dying for your sin so you can finally experience the God-relationship you were made for.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Wind That Changes Everything - #4964
Some of us are such driven, type-A, "make-it-happen" people we miss the miracle of being carried by a God who makes it happen. We get all stressed, brittle, frustrated, exhausted, depleted because we don't allow the God-takeover that is where the power really is.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Using Your Winter to Win Your Battles - #4982
Discouragement and fear and drifting from God - those are your greatest enemies, not what faces you on your battlefields. This winter is not dead time or despair time. It's get ready time. What you do with your winter will decide whether you win or lose!
