I am always amazed by what He has planned for me today. Today through Maxwell Leadership devotional, He taught me about the roadmap for getting the wisdom, values, and principles that I will need to lead effectively. Through Psalm 119, He teaches about adopting God’s Word as our source of leadership principles.

Psalm 119 is the longest chapter in the Bible, even I am struggling to read it in one go… I have to go back a few times to the verse before because my mind wandered off but being consistent, I started to highlight lots of verse from the chapter. Here are the verse I highlighted that God speaks to me through them. Hope you are blessed through them.
