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.

Trusting God through the famine

For those of you who know the story in the book of Ruth you know that it is a beautiful story of God sovereignly working to complete his ultimate plan.

In this first section we see a family struggling as they experience crisis after crisis. Sometimes we want to take the easy way out, but the easy way is not always the right way. David said in Psalms 37:25: “I have been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his descendants begging bread.” In difficult times we need to die to self and put God’s will first. God will either take us out of the trial or see us through it, either way we are in His hands and He is in control. We cannot run from our trials we need to embrace them. We need to claim the promises of God and obey the Word of God, in spite of what we see or how we feel or what may happen to us. We need to Fully Rely of God in every circumstance of our lives.

Elimelech took his wife Naomi and their two sons to escape the famine, but we see in Ruth 1:3 that the result was catastrophic. Elimelech died leaving Naomi alone to raise two sons in a foreign land, living among people who hated the Jews. The name Elimelech means My God is King, but Elimelech had not allowed God to be the King of his heart and life.  

My friend, what is the famine in your life your are facing? Embrace the promises of God and trust Him to see you through it.
