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.

Step out in Faith

There is an old Chinese Proverb that says "A journey of a thousand miles begins with one small step". It's that first step that is the hardest isn't it. How many times in life have we made plans for this or that only to find ourselves struggling to take that first step.

I am reminded of the Priests who were carrying the Ark of the Lord in Joshua 3 and in verse 13 it tells us that they had to place their feet in the Jordan river. Once they placed their feet in the river the waters would cease to flow where the Israelites and the Priests could cross over the Jordan River on dry ground. But it wasn't that easy, not only were they to put their feet in the river, but the river was at flood stage. Can you imagine stepping into a ragging river at flood stage while carrying the Ark of The Lord! Wow, So you can see this took a lot of faith taking that first step.

Sometimes in life it is hard to take that first step. We make all the excuses for why we can't take it or why we haven't done it yet. What is the ragging water you are avoiding? My friend, If we put our faith and trust in Christ, He will show us the way.

Proverbs 3:5-6 'Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.'
