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.

Cast All your Cares on God

Peter goes on to say, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you in 1 Peter 5:7.

Remember as we have seen throughout this study that at the time Peter is writing this, the Christians were suffering severe persecution. The word care here means “anxiety” or “worry”. When difficult times come our way it is so easy to worry or be anxious isn’t it. But listen to the words Peter is saying here. “Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.” Notice it says “all” your anxiety or worries. The word “all” in the Greek text has the idea, not of every worry that comes along, but the whole of their worries; In other words we are to give the whole of our cares our anxiety to God. Think about a cold; with a cold you may have a cough, a fever, congestion, sore throat, and running nose. When you give the “whole” of the cold you are giving everything – the cough, fever, congestion, sore throat, and running nose. You are not giving just the cough or just the congestion. Peter is commanding us to give the “whole” worry to God. The word “cast” means “having deposited with”. It refers here to a direct and once-for-all committal to God of all that would give us concern.

My friend, It all comes down to knowing that God is in control, He knows what we are going through and promises to see us through them. Cast All your cares on Him.
