DITL Ministry Home
Delighting in the Lord Ministries exists to encourage women in their pursuit and walk with God. Through Bible studies, Biblical teaching and blog posts, we pray DITL is a resource for women seeking to know Jesus, walk with Jesus and be transformed by the power of His Word.
The one thing I ask of the Lord -
the thing I seek most -
is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
Delighting in the Lord's perfections
and meditating in His temple.
Delighting in Being a Woman of God:
A Study on the book of Esther
A Jewish girl, orphaned at a young age, living in a foreign land, and being raised by her cousin; her story is one of uncertain circumstances and yet, Esther doesn’t let her circumstances define her. It is her faith in God and a life lived in such a way that defines her and undergirds all that she does. God will open doors for Esther to gain a position of influence and prominence in Persia as Esther goes from orphan to queen. It was, “for such a time as this” that God would call upon Esther’s faith to act in courage and help save the Jewish people from genocide under the hand of an evil Persian leader. The book of Esther is a story of rags to riches, life or death moments, and faith triumphing over fear. Esther’s life is an example for all of us of God’s love as well as what it looks like to be a woman of God. Not only will you finish this study with an understanding of this mighty work of God as He saved His people, but you’ll finish with an deeper understanding and application of being a Godly woman of influence, beauty, heritage, sacrifice, humility, patience, obedience and strength.
A more detailed and in-depth Bible study with either four or five days of homework. The studies in this series follows the R.E.A.D format of Receive, Experience, Act and Delight. As you read through the given chapter/verses for that day and week, you will answer questions about the text and go to other areas in God's Word looking at similar themes or events. Next you apply the verses in a very personal way by answering questions pertaining to the theme drawn out from that day. You end the day's study with a verse we've chosen that wraps up the day as you delight in God's Truth's and goodness. These studies take about 30 minutes a day to complete. They are verse by verse through different books of the Bible.
