Psalm 119:9-11 NASB
9 How can a young man keep his way pure?
By keeping it according to Your word.
10 With all my heart I have sought You;
Do not let me wander from Your commandments.
11 Your word I have treasured in my heart,
That I may not sin against You.
This psalm asks the question, “how can a young man remain morally conscience and spiritually sound?” In other words, in a day of sexual promiscuity, self-centered values, materialism, and a barrage of sinful social media and hate that promotes philosophies that are anti-God. The answer to this lies in heeding the word of God and seeking God with your whole heart (vv. 9, 10). Treasuring God’s word in your heart is a preventative measure against sin (v. 11). You must meditate on and memorize Bible verses that will be the help needed when sin and adversity appear.
