Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Antidote For Scary Nights - #8119
That’s the way to rest peacefully when you’re going through a scary time—surround yourself with Jesus.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Back-To-School Butterflies - #8093
There’s a promise from God that’s been an anchor for us as parents for a long time and maybe it might help you worry a little less, nag a little less, be a little less controlling or frustrating your kids with smother love.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Ground Zero-When Heroes Are Afraid - #8097
It’s interesting how the Bible describes our mission of telling people about Jesus in rescue terms. When Jesus said He had come to, “seek and to save what was lost,” (Luke 19:10) He was talking in life-saving terms.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - No Rescue Without Risk - #4437
But that's how it always is when there's a rescue. A drowning person; a person trapped in a burning building or the unstable rubble of an earthquake. There's no such thing as rescuing someone from a comfortable spot. There's no rescue without risk.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - When Fear isn't Final - #4458
When the Bible talks about rescue, it's not just referring to saving a person so they can live maybe thirty or forty more years on earth. When God talks rescue, He's talking about saving a person so they can live forever. Some of the spiritually dying people Jesus came to save work where you work, they live where you live, they go to school where you go to school, they participate in things you participate in. And He's placed a rescuer in their lives so they can have a chance at Jesus, and a chance at heaven. You probably looked at that rescuer in the mirror this morning.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Linus Minus his Blanket - #4434
Now, maybe we shouldn't be so amused by Linus and the security blanket he can't do without. Because most of us, maybe all of us, have a blanket of our own. Not literally, of course. But we're all pretty attached to something or someone that we really, really need. Maybe someone or something that to a significant extent defines who we are. Unfortunately, there comes a time in all our lives when we can't hang onto that blanket anymore. Sometimes, it's literally stripped from our hands.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Missing Ingredient - #4310
One missing ingredient made all the difference. You know, that's not just true of baking a cake. According to the Bible, there are two ingredients needed for relationships to work as they're supposed to. And things come out flat many times because one of these two ingredients is missing. In fact, if you're like most people, you're pretty strong in one of these ingredients, but a little short in the other one.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Courage for the Unknown - #4351
It's amazing the difference your Father's hand can make when you're walking into the unknown - which is exactly where God may be leading you now. You've sensed His leading, and He's leading you out of the "tent" of your comfort zone, out of the light of the familiar and the safe, and He's leading you into some new territory for your family, your security, maybe for your career, your location, maybe your ministry. And the trail ahead is full of questions - maybe even bears.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Squeezed To Obey - #4353
Our word for today from the Word of God begins with Jesus' parting instructions to His followers in Acts 1:8. "You will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." Now, guess which part of that they liked best? Right. Jerusalem. That was home. That was the familiar. I'm not sure they would have ever gotten beyond Jerusalem unless they were pushed, unless they were squeezed to go.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Bumpy Road to a Beautiful Destination - #4361
Actually, you may be navigating a very bumpy road in your life right now, and you're not enjoying this process much at all. And as you're having to really slow down and to absorb the shocks, it's tempting to turn back, isn't it? But God wants to remind you today of something it is easy to forget when the road is rough: there's something beautiful -- something worth it -- at the end of this difficult journey.
