Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Treasure in Your Desert - #5313
When you come to your Lord in total desperation, running on empty, you open yourself up to an experience of God's power and God's grace you can't get any other way.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - People Sweetener - #3861
Now, if you've been around the Jesus life very long, you've heard plenty about the importance of daily Bible reading, devotions, quiet time and so on. For some, that's a part of a list of spiritual duties and it's one that is often neglected, frankly. Will all of those who have difficulty maintaining a consistent Bible reading time, would you please raise your hand right now? Okay, oh - hands are going up all over the place! Well, there are plenty of us! This has got to be something more than an entry on your list of Christian chores.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - When it Looks Like You Should Turn Back - #5417
It could be that your journey right now is taking you through a very dark and stormy time. There's danger, there's apprehension, there's questions about which way to go, and turning back or bailing out looks like it may be the way to go. But your Father in heaven can see the whole road, and today He's saying to you, "Just keep going. Drive a few more miles and you'll start to see the sunshine!"

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Regrets at the Top of the Mountain - #8048
Don’t sell your soul to succeed. You’ll be at the top of the mountain and you will absolutely hate it there.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - How to Get Rid of Your Heavy Burden - #5431
When you bring a lifetime of selfishness and sin and hurt to the cross of Jesus, you can leave it there forever. You walk up to that cross dirty - you walk away clean! And the feeling of being clean inside may be something you've needed for a long time, and it can start today.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - So Big, So Far, So Doable - #5444
Listen to the teaching of your Master - don't keep dragging your tomorrows into your today. Worry is trying to live your tomorrow before you get there; before you have the grace for that day that God only issues in 24-hour increments. Jesus is saying, "Just do today!"

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Overlooked Treasure - #5460
The sins of our life are the ultimate cause of our feelings of worthlessness. We've defied God and the way He wants us to live, so we're away from the One who gave us our worth in the first place. It took Jesus paying your spiritual death penalty to make it possible for you to find the God that you've needed all these years. He made you. He paid for you with His life. Whatever others may have thought you're worth, you are priceless to Him.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Behind the Happy Face - #5461
Jesus is the one safe place to let it all out. He knows every dark corner of your heart. He died to pay for and forgive every sin you've ever done, every sin that's ever been done against you. His love isn't based on your performance. He loves you unconditionally. He died for you, knowing all about you. If He was ever going to turn His back on you, it would have been when He was nailed to a cross for you. He didn't reject you then. He won't reject you now. He never will.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Help With Your Baggage - #5536
He could be the difference for you. Let's look at the baggage you're carrying. I wonder if John's words describe you, trying to handle it without a Savior. See you were never meant to carry that pain or that burden alone. Jesus says, "Come to me. I want to carry it." He's a burden carrier. He knows your pain.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Asleep at the Throttle - #5548
I'm convinced that many a man, many a woman, has ended up doing things they never dreamed they would do because fatigue made them vulnerable. That's why it's a spiritual responsibility to get that day off, to turn off the TV, to turn off the lights in your office, to get to bed, to go away for a break, to get your perspective back again. To plan for rest like you plan for work.
