Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Why God is Turning Up the Volume - #4838
I think we all take our turn be spiritually asleep, oblivious to something He's trying to say or do in our life. And that may explain some of the pain, some of the struggle, some of the frustration that's been building lately. It's God trying to get your attention. And like me with our deep-sleeping friend, if one kind of wakeup call doesn't work, He will escalate His methods. He will not just let you sleep.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Panic Mistakes - #4150
Panic really can shut you down, close you off, and keep you from the very thing you need in order to make it. In fact, when you panic, you can make some mega-mistakes.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Cuddle Time - #4151
In our word for today from the Word of God, Jesus gives us the job description of one of His disciples, which I hope you want to be if you belong to Him. In describing Jesus' call to His original followers, Mark 3:14 says, "He appointed twelve ... that they might be with Him and that He might send them out to preach and to have authority to drive out demons."

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Whatever Happened to Peace on Earth? - #4162
The phrase "peace on earth" wasn't invented by some greeting card company. It was part of the birth announcement of the first Christmas. The one delivered by angels from heaven to shepherds in the field, watching over their sheep.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Pressure, The Pain, And The Prescription - #4851
God sometimes lets the pressure build so we will finally deal with what's really wrong inside us -- the sin we've never taken care of. David went to the Soul Doctor and he came away a man who was forgiven and clean. That could happen to you -- that same liberation -- if you'll finally let go of your pride and go to the Forgiving Place. That's the cross where Jesus loved you so much that He died for all the sins you've ever committed. When He said, "Father, forgive them" from that cross, He was including you.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Mountains of Yesterday and Tomorrow - #4859
God leads you in such a way that there's always something to thank Him for and always something to trust Him for! First, you must look back at all the amazing works God has already done and specifically thank Him for them. Your confidence will grow as you do. Then you look ahead at the huge challenges in front of you and you trust Him for those; the same God who brought you through all the mountains before.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - What the Lion is Waiting For - #4869
Satan is a spiritual predator who stalks the children of God. He hates God, and he hates you because you were made in God's image. And like a big cat, he is looking for an opportunity to pounce on you and bring you down.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Safely Behind the Snowplow - #4948
Our Shepherd, Jesus, always goes where He's about to take us, because we are His sheep. He gets there before you do, opening doors, preparing hearts, preparing relationships, removing obstacles, arranging provision.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The "Next to Daddy" Difference - #4953
David snuggled with his Heavenly Father and he was able to relax. You can, too. You can taste the Lord and His goodness in dark times more than any other time. And your panic is slowly replaced by His presence. That can happen to you, even with that medical uncertainty, that job uncertainty, with losing someone you love, with your fear of failing. You may have a future full of question marks; a present that's full of pressures and dangers. But you may have lost your focus because you've been concentrating on the mountain rather than on the mountain mover!

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - How to Never Be Satisfied - #4958
So how do we find that contentment that the Bible calls "great gain"? For starters, if you must compare, compare yourself with people who are worse off than you are. There are many, many of them. And focus on the God you belong to who is working out a unique plan for you, unlike anyone else's on earth. As part of His plan, there will always be people with more of what you want and people with less than what you have. He's measuring out yours in the amounts that will most make you like Jesus and help you be what He made you to be.
