Embracing Humility

Embracing Humility


Matthew 14:30-32 (NIV)

But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”

Immediately Jesus reached out His hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” He said, “why did you doubt?”

And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down.

Peter’s boldness was eventually humbled when he denied knowing Jesus out of fear. We all face moments of weakness and need to humble ourselves before God. Reflect on times in your life when you had to acknowledge your weaknesses and cry out for help. These moments of humility draw us closer to God and enable us to be vessels for His work. Pray for the grace to embrace humility and rely on God’s strength in all circumstances. Ask God to help you stay humble in times of success and to remember that it is His power and grace that sustain you. In humility, you’ll find a deeper connection with God and a greater capacity to serve others with love and compassion.

In this story, being the boat is depicted as a noble calling—to help others take their bold steps of faith. Reflect on how you can embrace this calling in your life. Are there specific ways you can support and encourage those around you as they navigate their faith journey? 


Take a moment to pray for guidance in becoming a vessel of God’s grace and love to others.

Ask God to help you focus less on seeking personal recognition and more on serving His kingdom’s advancement. In doing so, you’ll discover the beauty of humility and the joy of being part of God’s greater plan.
