Quenching the Soul Thirst

Are you aware of your insecurities? The Bible describes insecurity as a “soul thirst,” one that we try to quench with others’ approval or our own achievements but that can never be fully satisfied without God. We all struggle with the need for security and feeling like we are good enough, and this is especially true for teenagers.

As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God. [2] My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?
Psalm 42:1-2 NIV

Are you aware of your insecurities? The Bible describes insecurity as a “soul thirst,” one that we try to quench with others’ approval or our own achievements but that can never be fully satisfied without God. We all struggle with the need for security and feeling like we are good enough, and this is especially true for teenagers. Though it is easier to focus on the results of our insecurities – the things we do like drinking, drugs, getting attention, getting good grades or achieving – it is only once we acknowledge and take our insecurities to God that we truly become secure in who we are. Join Russ Ewell and friends as they discuss the effect our insecurities can have on our identity, our confidence, and our relationships with each other.
