Most often, it’s not the challenges we face external that most hold us back from living out our call. It’s the battle that rages in that has the greatest capacity to derail and defeat us. Our fears, if left unchecked, hinder us from becoming all God created us to be and living the life He died to give us. We all have a God-honoring, life-changing call, one we are uniquely created to fulfill. God will give us all we need to do all He asks and assigns. The question is, will we humbly and courageously accept that assignment? Will we courageously surrender to His plans?

Group Discussion Questions:

1. Have you considered how God might want to use you, in your current season?
2. What is a unique passion you hold that God might want to use to bring light and life to our world?
3. What are some fears that tend to hold you back from trying new things or stepping out in faith?
4. Is there an area that God might be calling you to surrender in order to make you freer to serve Him?
5. Consider your current fears. How many of them stem from focusing on your limitations rather than God’s power and provision?
6. Consider your fears in light of the parable Jennifer shared and the “lazy” servant’s perspective—Have you, perhaps unknowingly, assigned false character traits to God? Are you behaving as if He’s distant, uninvolved, or perhaps not powerful enough to save?
7. What is one “next right step” God is calling you to take?
