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.

I Trust You Lord

"Preserve me, O God: for in Thee do I put my trust" (Psalms 16:1). This is one of many prayers that David prayed to God when he was in trouble. How often do we find ourselves praying to God to help us get out of another jam we got ourselves into, or we are scared, lonely, and feel helpless? We always need to have that frame of mind, have a complete dependence on God for everything.

"The Lord preserves all of those that love Him" (Psalms 145:20). I wonder how many of us read this verse and think about just the physical things God has saved us from, such as missing a large boulder in the road with our car? But what about all the moral evils that God has kept us from? This really shows how much more in tune we are to the physical rather than the spiritual.

"But the Lord is faithful, who shall establish you, and keep you from evil" (II Thess. 3:3). There is evil surrounding God's people within and without. We still have the sin nature in us and Satan is roaming as a Lion to see whom he can devour. But the Lord "keeps His people from evil". Not that we are exempted wholly and altogether from evil. But we are kept from being overcome by and engulfed in it. Though they fall, they shall not be utterly cast down, for the Lord upholds them with His right hand.

My friend, let us say this prayer with David, Preserve me O God for in thee do I put my trust.
