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.

Stop, Look, Listen and Obey

When Haman arrived home, he found his wife and friends there and told them of all that had transpired with the King and Mordecai.

This was quite different from the last time he spoke to them, Instead of coming home on cloud nine, he is now coming home with his head covered in embarrassment. This time they did not comfort him in his time of suffering, notice in verse thirteen they actually predicted his downfall. God was warning Haman, but the proud prime minister wouldn't heed the warning. While Haman was talking with his wife and friends, the king's eunuchs came to take him to the second banquet with the king and queen.

This was not what Haman had expected. What a difference a day makes. Just yesterday he was on cloud nine. He was planning at this point that Mordecai would have been hung and he would be gloating as he went to the banquet. Just the opposite happened. He is now forced to go to the banquet with a crushed spirit and with fear flooding his heart, for his wife had predicted the start of his downfall.

Isn’t it wonderful to know that God is in control of all the details of our life no matter how small or how big! That he is with you in the daytime as well as in the nighttime. He is there in the rough times and in the good times. You can see here in the book of Esther of how God works through all sorts of people to accomplish his will. When God sounds an alarm, it pays to stop, look, listen and obey!
