Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - What Makes the Battles Worth It - #4471
You may not be on any military front lines, but the battles you've been fighting are taking their toll on you. Maybe you've been shot at, run down, there hasn't been much of a break in the action, and you've got some serious combat fatigue. In fact, it feels like you're losing the battle right now. You need some personal time with your Commander-in-Chief. No, not the President. No human leader can hold a candle to your Commander. He is, according to the Bible, the King of all kings - King Jesus.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Altar - Whatever it Takes - #4488
Maybe you've almost put your life on hold until you find that man or woman to marry. Don't waste a precious day of your life waiting for what you don't have. Live this day - single or married - with all your heart! And don't let your waiting start to turn you hard and cynical and bitter and negative. Those kinds of responses insult the God who said He will meet your needs, and they repel love rather than attracting it.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Hard to Turn - #4531
The leadership of Jesus in your life is dynamic not static, and stubborn people can miss it so easily. If you go against God's plans, it's guaranteed pain - needless pain. No amount of rationalizing or spiritualizing can manipulate God to agreeing with your plans. You need to line up with His. That's where the peace is.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - When the Plan Comes Together - #4433
A flawless plan, a leader who carries it out without explaining it, an amazing outcome when the plan comes together. Whoa, that's more than a scenario for some fictional TV show. It may well be exactly what is playing out in your life right now.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Many Dry Wells and One Gushing Spring - #4557
All those places you would normally turn for the strength and encouragement you need just aren't able to meet your need this time. You're feeling very alone. And bitterness, discouragement, anger, depression are starting to creep into your soul. But at a moment like this, David remembered the spring! There is a spring that never runs dry, that's gushing water for your soul even in the midst of an unrelenting drought. David turned to the infinite resources of the Lord his God and found strength when it seemed no strength was possible.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Brightest Stars in the Universe - #4560
I don't know what you're focusing your best energies on right now, your influence, your prayers, your ambitions. But if it doesn't impact eternity, it is too small to matter much. That's why the Bible says, "He who wins souls is wise."

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Everything You Need For The Trip - #4320
You know, the outfitter makes the difference -- on the river ... in your life. And if you belong to Jesus, you have no one less than the God of the universe as your Outfitter! He knows what's ahead on the river you're navigating. He knows everything you'll need to make it, and He's making sure you have what you need.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - When You Don't Like What's On Your Plate - #4326
I know you have days like that -- when you don't particularly like what's on your plate. Or you don't like how much there is of it. As a parent, you may have to handle some things that really aren't much fun these days. As a son or daughter, or a student, you've been stuck with some jobs that you really don't want to do. At work, it's getting pretty messy, pretty heavy, pretty boring. At church or in your ministry, you're not particularly liking the way it's going in what you're trying to do for the Lord. But it's just part of life -- days, and sometimes lots of days, when we don't like what's on our plate.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - No Timeouts, No Victory - #4344
We're busy playing the game. We lose our perspective because we can only see things from the position we're playing. But the Coach, of course, can see it all. It's worth it to stop the game for a little while to get the perspective of the one who's got the big picture. If you're a child of God, that timeout is called prayer. And we can't win without it. But we sure try.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Around, But Not With - #4357
There's something I've learned over the years from my relationship with Karen. It's easy to be around someone but not with him or her - like a couple watching a movie or TV. When you're just around someone, there's no real dialog, no real exchange, no real transaction, no real difference. I've done that with my Lord far too many times. Maybe you have, too.
