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.

Developing a Deeper Trust

The next step in our Christian walk is to develop a deeper trust in God, which we will be covering in this study over the next several weeks.

David said in Psalm 9:10 "And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; for You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You." My friend, It is only as we know God in this personal way that we come to trust Him.

We have come up with an acronym for what Trusting God will do in your life: We used the word "Trust":

T = Transform your life (Trust is not always easy, but if we could learn to trust God in everything, our lives would be transformed; Trusting God will Transform your life.)

R = Relinquish all control of your life to Him (Think about living a life where anything that comes into your life - whether good or bad is under the control of God, that you know God is there watching over you, working everything out for your good. If we really lived and believed this way think about how awesome your life would be)

U = Ultimately make Christ Lord of your life (Making Christ Lord of our lives basically is surrendering total control of your life to Him. Trusting Him to fully take control and supply all our needs)

S = Spiritually Strengthen your life (When you trust in God your life cannot help but be strengthened. It is not our strength, right, it is God's strength - Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me". The closer we get to God the stronger we become through Him.)

T = Thanking God for everything (The more you walk closer and closer to God, the more you trust God, the more you will find yourself thanking God for everything in your life, because you know everything is within God's control.)

Let us pursue a deeper relationship with our Lord together.
