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 Providential Care

The tables are turned as God thwarts Haman's plans ~ After an evening of celebration and plotting, Haman approaches the kings court anxious to submit his petition to hang Mordecai on the gallows, but before he had a chance to say anything to the king, the king asks him a question.

Let's look at Esther 6:6 "So Haman came in, and the king asked him, "What shall be done for the man whom the king delights to honor?" Now Haman thought in his heart, "Whom would the king delight to honor more than me?" My friend, little did Haman know the King, full of enlightenment from God after a sleepless night, was talking about rewarding Mordecai for saving his life five years ago. Wow! What a blow to Haman! God used the king to give the shocking order that reversed the fate, the destiny of Haman and Mordecai. Haman would have never expected Mordecai to be the man the king wished to honor. The king commands Haman that he is not to leave anything out that he had recommended in verses 7-9. Haman was humiliated before the public while Mordecai was honored. His experience clearly shows how God humbles the prideful of the world and exalts the humble. Haman's pride was crushed by the command of the king, for he was forced to exalt Mordecai the man he had personally despised and plotted to execute. Haman was to suffer the most embarrassing, disgraceful act of his life.

Proverbs 11:8 "The righteous is delivered from trouble, and it comes to the wicked instead."

Psalms 7:15-16 "He made a pit and dug it out, and has fallen into the ditch which he made. His trouble shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down on his own crown."
