How to Live Undaunted & Filled with Wisdom


You have a dream for your life. God actually gave it to you Himself. His desire is that you would live undaunted.

That is, He does not want you to be intimidated or discouraged by difficulty, danger, or disappointment. Even by a pandemic and all that comes with that.

However, life often feels like everything is going against you. You’re in a battle. A battle you seem to be losing. Everything is falling apart. Nothing is working. And you’ve run out of ideas.

You need help. But you feel totally alone.
Your spiritual reflex is to cry out to God.
But nothing seems to be changing.

Then The Lord quietly reminds you, that if you want to live undaunted, you will need to seek His presence & His wisdom. It seems too simple to be true. But it is.

Nevertheless, it’s not always easy. For when anxiety & frustration threaten your dream, they also threaten your identity. You can easily forget that you are created in the image of God and that He is the Author of your dream. Yes, emotions can be serious distractions that can deter you from your destiny. As a result, you may begin to speculate, to consider possible outcomes & create strategies that may send you off in the wrong direction altogether.

But emotions & speculations can also be signposts. Reminders that you’re trying to walk alone, which you were never intended to do.

And reminders that God turns that attempt to deterOpens in a new tab. you into a new level of determinationOpens in a new tab.. How cool is that?

Yes, if you want to live undaunted and what you’re doing isn’t working, ask your heavenly Father. He loves to help.

  • You won’t be condescended to when you ask for His help.
  • So ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought.
  • He won’t scold you.

Instead He will overwhelm your failures with His generous grace. JAMES 1:5-8Opens in a new tab.
