Psalm 119 is the longest chapter in the Bible with 176 verses. The emphasis throughout this Psalm is on the Word of God.
While there are a number of facts about this Psalm and how it is developed, one thought expressed near the beginning has great application in leadership.
The Psalmist writes, “How can a young man keep his way pure? By keeping it according to Your Word.”
This thought should scream to be heard among leadership. The remainder of this section emphasizes some key phrases to show how we can fulfill this statement.
Seeking God – With all my heart I have sought you.
Placing the highest value on His word – Your word I have treasured in my heart.
Telling others of His word – With my lips I have told of all the ordinances of Your mouth.
Finding joy in His word – I rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies.
Giving deep thought to His word – I will meditate on Your precepts and regard your ways.
Remember His word – I shall not forget your word.
The lessons on leadership are rich if we will listen and apply.
