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 is with you

Adversity hits in various ways for each of us. James 1:2 gives us instructions for When we face various trials, not If we face trials.

We will all go through adversity, the question is, 'What is our response to adversity?'. Do we fall apart and turn our hearts from God becoming bitter and angry, or do we call upon our Heavenly Father to give us strength to endure knowing it will work out according to God's will? ~ Romans 8:28. In Scripture we read that Job lost everything as one adversity after another hit him, and yet he said Blessed be the name of the Lord. ~ Job 1:21. Corrie Ten Boom being sent to concentration camps watched as all her family died, but she never wavered, she continued to trust in God and Worshiped Him.

Are we ready to acknowledge that God has a sovereign plan for our lives and stop looking at the adversity but look to God for what He is doing in our lives? Are we ready to trust that God is working in our lives according to His plan for our life - through the bad times as well as the good times? Are we able, in the midst of adversity, to fall to our knees and worship God saying Blessed be the name of the Lord?

As Corrie Ten Boom said “There is no pit so deep that God’s love is not deeper still.” My friend, God is with you through every adversity and is in control of every aspect of our lives. As we fully grasp this, we will be able to say with Job, 'Blessed be the name of the Lord' through every adversity no matter how big or small! Trust God
