Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Shrinking Your God - #4457
Faith is the key that unlocks all the great things God has for you. And He isn't about to let your faith stay the same size. He's in the faith-enlargement business. He's let something come into your life that defies human solution, that overwhelms human answers, so you can experience how big your King really is. When the bad news gets "badder," your God does not get smaller. He's still the Sovereign Lord, the great and powerful God. Let yourself be overwhelmed by the God you have - and you'll find that nothing but Him is truly overwhelming!

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 - Wounded But Still Fighting - #4301
If you've taken some hits lately - you're hurt, you're knocked down, you're wounded - then the stirring testimony of the Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 4, beginning with verse 7, should be an encouragement and a challenge to you. It's our word for today from the Word of God. It comes from one who has been wounded over and over again, and who refuses to stop fighting for Jesus.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Where To Go When It's Impossible - #4311
I hope this doesn't come as a shock to you and ruin your day, but there is no Superman. But there is one the Bible calls Sovereign Lord and the Most High God. And if you're facing a situation or a need that is going to require "powers far beyond those of mortal man," you have this awesome God to turn to. That's when you get a ringside seat to see the greatness of the Most High God.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - When You're at the Edge - #4322
For you, that might be right now. You are at one of those points we all reach several times in our life -- sometimes several times in a year! You're at the edge -- financially, with a son or daughter you don't know what to do with, or maybe in your marriage. It could be you're at the edge emotionally; you're not sure how much more you can take, or your responsibilities have gotten so heavy that they're taking you to the edge.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Tougher Than The Tornado - #4324
There are moments for all of us when we get hit head-on with the emotional equivalent of an F5 tornado. There are some of life's hits that threaten to blow away everything we've depended on. A divorce can do that, a disease can do that, a disaster or a disappointment. A death can sure send everything spinning. We know that most of what matters to us is something we can lose - and if and when we do, there is sometimes not much left but the pieces.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - A Killer Storm and a Calm Captain - #4336
A calm captain who has been through these fearful storms before, who knows everything will be okay at the end of the day, who has brought so many others safely through. Now, that's what makes the difference when it feels as if the storm is going to sink you. If you belong to Jesus Christ, you have such a Captain! That's why the writer of "Amazing Grace" could write: "Through many dangers, toils and snares, I have already come. 'Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far, and grace will lead me home."

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - "I Love You" At The Finish Line - #4058
Now, Paul is describing here two generations of loving wives, with the veterans teaching the rookies about that kind of love. Women whose husbands know they are really loved, end up reaping what the Proverbs 31 woman did.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Dangling in Space - #5346
Your security comes from who is holding the rope: your big, strong Heavenly Father. You may be in a situation where it seems as if God is all you've got. That's when you find out that God is all you need. And it has nothing to do with your ability to hang on; it's all about God's ability to hang on.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - One Safe Place - #3885
The world's gotten pretty stormy lately, hasn't it? There's a lot of uncertainty, anxiety, even fear about what the future holds. We need a harbor - a place where we can be safe while the storm rages around us. And there can be one. Our word for today from the Word of God talks about it.
