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.

Live in Anticipation

Deborah's life challenges us in several ways, as a Christian, a woman, a wife, and a leader. She reminds us of the need to be available both to God and to others. She demonstrates what a person can accomplish when God is in control.

We read about Deborah in the Book of Judges, chapters four and five. Deborah served the people of Israel as a judge and a prophetess. Her testimony for the Lord and her influence upon the people were so great and pervasive that she was known as the 'Mother of Israel'. She reached out to help the Israelites, welcoming them into her counsel and advice, encouraging them to return to the Lord.

Her life shows us that God can accomplish great things through people who are willing to be led by Him. She had a remarkable relationship with God. She was not power hungry, she wanted to serve God. Whenever praise came her way, she gave God the credit. Deborah waited on God, communed with Him daily, and encouraged others to do the same. God's purpose in using Deborah as a judge was to lead His people into successful battle against the Canaanites and ignite spiritual revival in their hearts. Hearing God's word from and through Deborah awakened God's people to their sagging spiritual condition and stirred up their hearts.

As God's witness, Deborah was used by the Lord to bring the Israelites back to Him. May we learn from Deborah as we too commune with God daily through His word and prayer, making ourselves available to the opportunities that He sets before us.

We all have choices to make each day, the question is are we living each day in anticipation of what the Lord wants us to do. Giving God honor and glory with each step we take. It is never too late to live a remarkable life as Deborah did - Always be available to the opportunities that God sets before us - Living each day as unto the Lord.
