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's Sovereign Plan

As we depend on Christ to help us through the trials in our lives, this my friend is where we will grow in our Christian walk.

As it says in James 1:3-4 “knowing that the testing of our faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.” Patience is not a passive acceptance of circumstances. It is a courageous perseverance in the face of suffering and difficulty. If we are able to look beyond the present trial and see the product God intends to produce through our suffering, we will experience joy.

When our attitude is right, where we are seeking what God wants to show us and not dwelling on the circumstances themselves, then this is where we will grow spiritually, we will mature in our Christian walk. We may not be able to understand the specific reasons for God allowing certain experiences in our lives, but we can be confident that his plan is for our good. Romans 8:28 "and we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose."
