Bible Verses for Teenage Girls–Scriptures about Trusting God

One of the foundational pillars of the Christian faith is trust in God. Teens today are bombarded with so many negative messages that contradict the Word of God. It is so important that our teen girls know the truth of who they are in Christ, and that they can trust in the Lord to help them with whatever challenges they may face. May they cling to the truth of these Scriptures and trust in the Lord with all their hearts!

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6

Those who know your name trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you. Psalm 9:10

The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him. Psalm 28:7

When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise—in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me? Psalm 56:3-4

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13

Scriptures about Seeking God

Not only is it important to trust in God, but it is equally important to seek God on a daily basis. The Hebrew word for seek means to resort to, seek with care, enquire, to frequent (a place), and to to seek God in prayer and worship (source). 

When our teenage girls grasp the significance of seeking God daily by calling out to him in prayer and spending intentional time reading the Word of God, they will greatly strengthen their faith and fight against the schemes of the enemy.

Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near. Isaiah 55:6

But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who long for your saving help always say, “The Lord is great!” Psalm 40:16

You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water. Psalm 63:1

Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always. Psalm 105:4

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Matthew 6:33-34a

Bible Verses for Teenage Girls–Scriptures about Anxiety

There are moments when we all feel anxious. It seems that there are so many challenges that teen girls face today that can cause anxiety. Negativity on social media, pressures at school, and other daily occurrences can bring about anxiety in teens. 

Teenage girls also undergo body and hormonal changes throughout the adolescent years that can also bring about new waves of emotion, stress, and anxiety. It is essential that we equip our daughters and loved ones with Scriptures that they can use to manage their emotions and lower their stress levels.

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7

When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy. Psalm 94:19

Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:5-7

Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Psalm 139:23

Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens. Psalm 68:19

Bible Verses for Teenage Girls–Scriptures about Friendship

Friendships are also a very important part of teenage girls’ lives. God certainly created people to be in communal relationships with others, and many women and teenagers enjoy meaningful conversations with friends and family. These are also pivotal years when girls learn how to choose the right friends–and God’s Word has much to say about choosing the right friends!

The righteous choose their friends carefully, but the way of the wicked leads them astray. Proverbs 12:26

Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm. Proverbs 13:20

A perverse person stirs up conflict, and a gossip separates close friends. Proverbs 16:28

A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity. Proverbs 17:17

The teenage years are also a time when girls begin to notice boys in a new way, and vice versa. May these Scriptures provide your teen girls with wisdom and prudence as they grow into maturity. Many of these Scriptures were very encouraging to me when I was a teenager. Although girls will become more interested in boys, it is important for them to know that the time for romantic relationships will come at God’s appointed time.

Daughters of Jerusalem, I charge you by the gazelles and by the does of the field: Do not arouse or awaken love until it so desires. Song of Songs 2:7

Treat younger men as brothers, older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters, with absolute purity. 1 Timothy 5:1-2

Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds…Hebrews 10:23-24

Scriptures about Obedience

These Scriptures on obedience are also important for teenage girls to remember. We all ought to strive to obey the Lord out of love and honor for his name. As teens, this also involves obeying and honoring their parents. 

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise— “so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.” Ephesians 6:1-3

You have laid down precepts that are to be fully obeyed. Psalm 119:4

In your unfailing love preserve my life, that I may obey the statutes of your mouth. Psalm 119:88

Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord. Colossians 3:20

Bible Verses for Teenage Girls–Scriptures about the Future

As your teen enters highschool and navigates schoolwork, friends, and grades, they may start to become anxious about the future. Questions arise such as: what should I do after high school? Should I go to college or a trade school? What career should I pursue? How will I pay for these things? May these Scriptures serve as great reminders that God is in control of their lives, and that they can place their futures in his hands.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
