Finding Peace Through Humility (Joel Muddamalle)

Finding Peace Through Humility (Joel Muddamalle)

Study of a Book of the Bible: Judges

“In those days Israel had no king; everyone did as they saw fit” (Judges 17:6). In truth, the people had a King—the Lord—but they had rejected his authority over their lives. This led to them getting stuck in a cycle of faithlessness, judgment, remorse, deliverance . . . and then faithlessness again. The people lacked humility. If only they had recognized God as their King, they could have broken out of the cycle.

In this study, theologian Dr. Joel Muddamalle reveals how humility can likewise help us break out of our cycles of sin and experience the peace that God wants us to have. Humility isn’t about being passive or a doormat. It’s about relying on God’s limitless resources and inviting more of his strength and peace into your life.
