Every part of our life gives us something to fear. This is a dangerous world and there always seems to be something new to be afraid of. We can try to ignore, numb, or control our fear but that only makes things worse. There is a better way. A way that allows us to experience peace and confidence no matter what is coming at us.

1. What’s God doing in your life & world?
2. What’s your reaction to this message that you can “confidently trust Jesus”? Why do you think that is?
3. Read 1 Peter 5:6-7. When do you find it most difficult to trust that God cares for you? What would choosing to confidently trust in those times look like for you?
4. How could this week’s message be applied to some of the fears you are currently wrestling with? How can your group pray for you in this?
