Never Satisfied?

Millions of people today spend a lifetime searching for love, acceptance and success without really understanding the need that compels them.
It must be understood that this hunger for self-worth is God-given and can only be truly and completely satisfied by Himself.
Our value is not dependent on our ability to earn the fickle acceptance of people, but rather, it's true source is the love and acceptance of our Heavenly Father.
He created us. He Alone knows how to fulfill all of our needs. (Phil 4:19)

In Scripture, we find God supplying all that is essential for us to discover our worth and our true significance.

First and foremost, He tells us how important we are to Him:
You are precious to me. You are honored, and I love you.
-Is. 43:4.

While people will come and go based on their feelings, on situations, and as a result of their human nature, He will never leave or abandon us:
I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. I will not, I will not, I will not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let you down or relax My hold on you! Assuredly not!
-Hebrews 13:5

Again, it must be understood that our hunger for love, acceptance, and self-worth is given to us by God and can only be truly satisfied by Himself.
When His love and acceptance are our primary focus and we continually dwell on these truths, the yearnings for the approval of man will fade, and our joy will be more complete as we bask in His unfailing love for us.
