“I’m reminded that every leader who is great in God’s eyes is a servant.” Beth Moore

Did you enjoy looking through the Hebrews Hall of Faith and simultaneously reviewing your own footprints in life? As we completed this study were you able to see how God has prepared you for the current season of your life? Can you now complete this sentence with confidence and authority: By faith (your name)________________!

I hope you took time to complete the timeline on pages 200-202 in your workbook. What a lasting treasure for those of you who completed it! Remember Philippians 2:13 says …. for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. Regardless of your past, God can and will use you in the future if you open your heart to Him.

Print the Commission of Faith in the back of your workbook (page 223) and place it where you’ll be reminded of this study. Tell others about the book and post a review on Amazon when you Click here.

Our next study begins November 2nd so please register for the Armor of God study by Priscilla Shirer when you CLICK HERE. If you saw the War Room movie then join us for this study and learn to organize your prayer closet! Missionary Mom Stasia Nielsen will be writing our discussion questions and weekly updates for the study on prayer.

Assignment For the Week

  • Select a small group day and time that fits your schedule. Arrive to the private Facebook group for the one hour meeting.
  • If you are listening to the audio cd’s or watching the videos, watch Session Ten, available through Lifeway (not required for participation in the study)

 Discussion Questions- Answer in your small group or post a comment below

  1. Why is the statement in our pledge of faith- “God is who He says He is”- the most important of all? (page 197)
  2. Hebrews 11:1 defines faith as: Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. If someone asks you to explain your faith, how will you personally define what you cannot see? Share your thoughts and let’s learn from one another!
  3. “I am who God says I am” is the most difficult statement in the pledge of faith. Why do you think so many women find this hard to accept? (page 208)
  4. What are a few things you’ve done in the strength of Christ that you knew with all your heart you could not naturally do? (page 212)
  5. God calls us to a sacrificial love, even when we don’t want to or when the person is not deserving of our love. Without using names or dishonoring someone, describe your present challenges to love, or a past situation where you loved sacrificially. Do NOT identify the person by name or role, such as husband or son! (page 214)
  6. What have you enjoyed most about this Bible study from Beth Moore?

Believing God Online Bible Study | Week 8

By | Believing God | No Comments

Welcome back to womens online Bible study as we continue the Believing God by Beth Moore. We’ve finished reading week eight in the workbook and have just one more week of study. Our next study begins November 2nd so please register for the Armor of God study by Priscilla Shirer when you CLICK HERE. If you saw the War Room movie then join us for this study and learn to organize your prayer closet! Missionary Mom Stasia Nielsen will be writing our discussion questions and weekly updates for the study on prayer.

believing god week 8 online bible study

This week is a good time to remember that although you have not seen Jesus, you love Him, you believe Him, and you are receiving salvation for your soul through Him.

It’s also a reminder that God brings good from tragedy and times of grief are seasonal. The hardship and the grief are not long-suffering unless we choose to make it so through our own will. As Christian women who love Jesus, we are promised that suffering turns to joy (Psalm 126). The Amplified Version (v. 5-6) says: They who sow in tears shall reap with joyful singing. He who goes back and forth weeping, carrying his bag of seed [for planting],Will indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves with him. The Message Version (v. 6) says:

Those who went off with heavy hearts will come home laughing, with armloads of blessing.

Would you take a moment and write that down- jot a note into your cell phone, or a Post-It or anything that will remind you of God’s promise. I know who you are because I see your suffering in our small group discussions and in the prayer requests each day. Jesus sees your heavy hearts. Lay your burdens at His feet with prayer.

As I look back on my own journey of faith, I recognize that my sin did bear fruit. Though that prodigal season God allowed me to rebel and I hid my face from Him in shame. He showed me the consequences of my sin and in that experience deepened my faith. It would be impossible to lead and disciple women if I had not experienced the same wounding and shame. Because I wore this burden over my heart and cut-away my relationship with God for a season, I’m able to see this reflected in the hearts of my sisters in Christ and lead them on the same path to freedom that I found through consistent Bible study. A restored relationship with the Father is rooted in unending love. He calls me to be myself and not imitate people. Only Jesus.

My prayer for you is to remove all stumbling blocks in your journey of faith. An armload of blessings are waiting for you!

Assignment For the Week

  • Calendar your study time and small group time. Use a reminder alarm on your cell phone.
  • Pray before you begin reading. Ask the Holy Spirit to open your heart to wisdom.
  • Select a small group day and time that fits your schedule. Arrive to the private Facebook group for the one hour meeting.
  • Read Week Nine: Believing God When Victory Demands Your All in your workbook
  • If you are listening to the audio cd’s or watching the videos, watch Session Nine, available through Lifeway (not required for participation in the study)

 Discussion Questions- Answer in your small group or post a comment below

  1. Galatians 6:9 reads, “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (KJV) Do you feel frustrated over the sowing and reaping principle or satisfied and encouraged? If you are comfortable, share what you are presently experiencing even if it is frustration.
  2. Beth Moore suggests that our human tendency is to trust God with virtually anything (our health, circumstances, children) before we trust Him with our finances. (page 179)  Why are we at times reluctant to give God all of our trust with some things and not others?
  3. As we looked through different periods of our lives in Lesson 8, have you identified any lies that you believed during those years that God later exposed to you and replaced with His truth? If so, please share and explain.
  4. Beth Moore characterized Gilgal as a place where any one of three things happen: 1) we realize that God has rolled away our reproach, 2) God has proved us victorious in a do-over (an opportunity to go back and get something right), or 3) God has taken us full circle in a significant way. (page 193) Have you experienced a Gilgal of your own during your life so far?

Believing God Online Bible Study | Week 7

By | Believing God | No Comments

Welcome back to womens online Bible study as we continue our lessons from Believing God by Beth Moore. If you finished your assignments in week seven then you now realize why so many women say this is a life-changing study! I first completed my memory retrieval 10 years ago and was blessed to re-read my journal notes this week, adding more life events to my story. We will NOT ask you to share your personal memories in small groups this week.

believing god week 7

My prayer is that you do not skip this week and when it seems uncomfortable that you’ll lean closer to Jesus. Seek support from a licensed Christian counselor or your local church. Walk through the memories with Jesus beside you.

  • Some of you are retrieving memories of abandonment and adoption from biological parents.
  • Some of you are retrieving memories of sexual, emotional, and physical abuse.
  • Some of you are retrieving memories of children you lost to miscarriage, infant death, cancer, childhood illness.
  • Some of you are retrieving memories of divorce, infidelity, loss of a spouse or marriage.
  • Some of you are retrieving memories of abortion, promiscuity, affairs, pornography and past sins.

While some memories are painful, others are reminders of seeds planted in our spiritual journey.

  • Some of you are retrieving memories of grandmothers and mothers who brought you to church each Sunday.
  • Some of you are retrieving memories of Sunday school teachers and church camps.
  • Some of you are retrieving memories of a convicting word spoken by a friend.
  • Some of you are retrieving memories of a personal confession of faith and salvation story.
  • Some of you are retrieving memories of spiritual mentors.

Everyone has a story to retrieve. Everyone has the opportunity to retrieve it with the Holy Spirit as Counselor, Teacher and Reminder. Is this your time…or will you keep those memories tucked away in the dark. This is your story.

Assignment For the Week

  • Calendar your study time and small group time. Use a reminder alarm on your cell phone.
  • Pray before you begin reading. Ask the Holy Spirit to open your heart to wisdom.
  • Select a small group day and time that fits your schedule. Arrive to the private Facebook group for the one hour meeting.
  • Read Week Eight: Believing God Can Get You to Your Gilgal in your workbook
  • If you are listening to the audio cd’s or watching the videos, watch Session Eight, available through Lifeway (not required for participation in the study)

 Discussion Questions- Answer in your small group or post a comment below

  1. John 14:26 says: But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Which of His three roles is most important in your current season of life- Counselor, Teacher, Reminder? Why?
  2. God sent the Holy Spirit to teach us all things and remind us of everything Jesus has said. Do you find this comforting or troubling? Why?
  3. God has given us two families- biological and spiritual. Psalm 27:10 ESV  says: For my father and my mother have forsaken me, but the Lord will take me in. When did you first realize that you were adopted into God’s family as His treasure? What does the saying “brothers and sisters” in the Bible passages mean to you personally?
  4. This week we affirmed that God has been there all along, part of your life from when you were knitted in the womb. Is there a time in your life when you turned away from Him or did not have a relationship with Him? What event or person brought you back?

With Love,
