Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Always Taking Notes - #4963
God has put the people in your life from whom you can learn something about Him, about yourself, about good choices, about bad choices, about your blind spots. Whether or not you keep getting "wiser still" depends on the openness of your heart to this world of teachers around you, to new information, to new ways of seeing old information, to uncomfortable information.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Purpose-Driven Day - #4983
Each day, give each member of your family all of you, even if it's only for a short time. Each day, you pray for God to give you an opportunity to tell someone about your relationship with Jesus. Each day, encourage as many people as you can. Each day, make some progress on your long "to do" list, putting the most important ones first. And each day, at the end, sign off with God, crowning Jesus the Lord of what you didn't get done today.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Eyes Too Wide Open - #5017
You don't see better when your eyes are wide open to everything; you actually get blinded by it! That's what happens to your spiritual eyes, to your heart when you let things in that should never let in. It may be that you're being gradually blinded right now by all the images, and ideas, and conversations, and humor, and gossip that you're letting flood into your mind. You are less and less innocent about what is evil. You are more knowledgeable about things God calls sin; things which took His Son to the cross!

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Roots That Hold - #5019
A life that's deeply anchored to a growing personal relationship with this Lord is holding onto the one thing that no storm can uproot.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - How to See Through Your Blind Spot - #5054
We're so used to doing things a certain way, that we'll never see some sins without the help of someone else. God doesn't want our blind spot to remain there. He knows a blind spot can make you crash, so He puts mirrors with two legs into our lives. Do you have some two-legged mirrors in your life? Those are people who love us enough, or maybe even dislike us enough, to tell us the hard truth about ourselves.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Right Answers Under Pressure - #5094
Talk to the God of heaven before you talk to that person on earth. Connect yourself to the throne room of God. Get prayed up, and even if you're scared, go ahead to the opportunity that God is opening up. We're all playing Jeopardy and coming up with right answers under pressure, but we have a direct pipeline to the One who has all the right answers. Let Him come up with your answer.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Always in Touch With the Tower - #5098
He's living in your body; He's in your personality. All day long He's trying to tell you the next thing God wants you to do, or something He wants you to avoid or change. You need to decide. That's why it says, "Keep in step with the Spirit." You can't just plug in in the morning and then again at night. You never know where the Lord might want to steer you next.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Your Stabilizer When You're Crashing - #5140
Jesus has been the Flight Controller for my wife and me through our most painful times. When we lost a baby, Jesus was the difference. When the finances were caving in, Jesus was the difference. When the accident was nearly fatal, when the loss of a loved one was very sudden and very painful, when they said my wife might not make it, when the doctor's news was awful; always, Jesus was the difference. He wants to be that for you.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Secret of Getting Where You're Supposed to Go - #5143
Just like that day at the airport when I got my direction just by staying close to the captain. He had the information I needed, but I never would have known that information except for my proximity to the one who knew. It's like that with knowing God's will. It's not your cleverness in figuring it out; it's your closeness to the God whose will you're looking for!

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Smudged Glasses - #5154
You may be doing all kinds of good things to get God's guidance; you're reading His Word, you're praying for His direction, and you're seeking godly counsel. But if there's something impure in your heart, it will block the view. That may be why no answer has seemed to come. God is waiting for you to clean up what isn't pure.
