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.

God speaks through people

God has placed people in our lives to help us to hear His voice. Proverbs 12:15 “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, But he who heeds counsel is wise.”

In some cases, the people to whom God is working through will confirm the voice of God to you and help you to see His plan. Have you had a time when you were feeling the urge of the Holy Spirit and then someone out of the blue brings up that very thing, or you hear a message from a pastor or read a post and it confirms what you were feeling? This may be God working through them to confirm His pan for you. However, I must caution you that you should rely on them solely as confirmation; these people are human and can have their own feelings and fears distort their objectivity. So we still need to take the counsel of the people placed in our lives and carefully bring it to God in prayer. God will direct you according to His will in your life ~ He will give you a peace within that will confirm His will in your life.

One sure way to know that God is speaking to you is that God will not lead you to do something that goes against scripture. So when in doubt, check with scripture. Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.”

Be aware of God's Presence in your life and trust Him to guide you.
