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.

Facing the crossroads of Life

As we walk in our Christian lives we are going to face crossroads in our life where we are put into a position where we have to make a decision of which way to go. You can choose to go right or left but the right path is not always clear and we are not sure which way to go, other times it is clear as we need to stay on a certain path.

As we read in Genesis 39:7-20 Joseph was put in a position where Potiphar's wife tried to seduced Joseph, and Joseph had a choice to make - he could either give in to her temptations or flee knowing it was wrong. Joseph chose to flee which was the obvious right choice. God used this injustice; however, to fulfill His purpose in Joseph's life. Yes, he was imprisoned wrongly; he was also maliciously sold earlier in his life into slavery which brought him to Potiphar’s house to begin with, but as we all know it was through these events that God fulfilled His plan.

When you are mistreated, when you are maliciously attacked, when you are unjustly accused, remember Joseph and know that God sees the whole picture and has a plan and a purpose in our lives. We need to Trust God and continually walk in the spirit and flee from ungodly choices and temptations as Joseph did. Remember that God will not allow the acts of someone else to thwart His plan.

The one thing that helps keep us on the right path, that helps us make the right choices in life is to be walking with the Lord. We need to be in His word, communicating with Him daily. We need to be conscious of God's presence in our lives moment by moment every second of a day.
