Welcome to Empowered Bible Study Ministries

Bible study is essential to our Christian walk. As we study God's Word, our personal relationship with God grows deeper and deeper. It empowers us to live for the Lord in every aspect of our lives. This is what has inspired me to do an online Bible study.

Many years ago my husband introduced me to a commentary on the book of Colossians and I was so blessed as the Scripture came to life before my very eyes. Since that day we have developed an extensive library and enjoy studying God's Word.

I have prepared some Bible studies that I would like to share with you. My prayer is that they will bless you as much as they have blessed me in preparing them. I pray your life is touched and that it would inspire you to live every moment of every day for Christ.

Lord Hear my Prayers

We not only believe in God's commission and command to pray but we have also seen the power of answered prayers and are here to pray for your every need. 
 
Psalms 17:6 'I have called upon You, for You will answer me, O God; Incline Your ear to me, hear my speech.' (NASB)

What an encouraging scripture! David knew that when he prayed, God would hear him. And what a beautiful picture of God inclining His ear down as David prayed. My friend, God inclines his ear down to listen to your prayers also! Trust in the Lord with all your heart and know that He cares for you as He inclines His ear to hear your prayers. Blessings to you

Life is a Gift

Thank you Lord for my life - In return I will Live it for you: 
 
In Psalm 90:12 it says: “Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom”. There is an important reminder in this Scripture that life is very short. Our days are numbered; our lives are limited; Life passes extremely fast. The Bible says that a person’s life is like a breath or vapor.  Realizing that life is short can inspire us to be more dedicated to the Lord. Realizing that life is short can help us to properly value things.

My friend, We are Not promised tomorrow, life is but a vapor; therefore, live Every second of a day for The Lord. Remember that every breath you take is a blessings - a gift from God! Live it to bring honor and glory to our Lord Jesus Christ!

Walking with the Lord

My friend, we are here for a short time and as we journey through this life we are to walk a godly walk. We should be of one mind living in unity with compassion, tenderheartedness, and humble-minded as it says in 1 Peter 3:8. 
 
We need to Trust in the LORD with all our heart and do not lean on our own understanding but In all our ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct our paths. ~ Proverbs 3:5-6 God directs our paths, carries us through the trials of our lives giving us the help and support we need, and has given us the abilities we need to do the tasks He sets before us. Walk daily with the Lord, giving Him the honor and glory for everything in our lives.

Encourage One Another

There is a lot of sadness in the world today. A word of encouragement offered at the right moment can mean the difference in someone's life.  Let's build one another up instead of tearing them down. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 states: "Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing."
 

My friend we never know what someone is going through.  Look around you; Be sensitive to others' need for encouragement and offer supportive words and prayer.  Let's make a difference in someone's life today. Reach out and show God's love to those around you. 

Keep trusting God, don't give up when times get rough! God does have a plan and purpose for your life. Jeremiah 29:11 ~ For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Thank you Lord

Have you not known? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. ~ Isaiah 40:28-29

Live for Christ

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer. ~ Psalm 19:14

What consumes your thoughts, your time, and your life? When Christ comes, will he find you faithful to Him or dwelling on the things in your life? We only have one life and only what is done for Christ will last. Let's not waste our life, Live every moment for Christ!
