through His Word
Fear is a bully. It can blind us to the truth and paralyze us from moving forward. It can rob us of heartwarming moments, unforeseen victories, and opportunities to make a difference in the world around us.
Courage is a great friend. It opens our eyes to the truth and rescues us from paralysis. When we choose courage, we experience adventures that have been orchestrated by God, we find in God what we need for every circumstance, and we quench the voices of anxiety, doubt, and what-ifs. Courage is quick to remember that God is always with us and for us.
How do we comply with God’s command, “Don’t be afraid”?
That’s the topic of the spring issue of Refresh Bible Study Magazine. Fifteen authors join forces in this issue to share stories, Scripture, strategies, and encouragement for how to overcome fear in daily life. Some of the questions that they answer are:
What are some of the proven strategies that defeat fear?
What tips offer us insight and encouragement?
What can we do when our fears come true?
What “healthy” fears keep us on God’s path?
What truths and habits help us to anticipate the future without being afraid of it?
How can we disarm lies from Satan, instead of becoming paralyzed by the fear they cause?
- How can we be brave in every season of life?

We meet Thursdays from 7-8 pm EDT.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request the Zoom link for our Thursday Zoom meetings.
March 25 will be a special night. We will hear from members of the group about the qualities that they appreciate in Bible studies. Then on April 1, we will continue with reading and discussing Refresh. Email us if you would like to come to any of these Zoom meetings.
