The Highway Code – Road Rules… To LIFE

The Highway Code

PSALM 23

The Lord Is My Shepard
I Shall Not Want
Me Makes Me Lie Down In Green Pastures
He Leads Me Beside The Still Waters
He Restoreth My Soul
He Leads Me In The Paths Of Righteousness For His Name Sake
Even Though I Walk Through The Valley Of The Shadow Of Death
I Will Fear No Evil For Thou Art With Me
Thy Rod And The Staff Thy Comfort Me
Thou Prepares A Table Before Me
In The Presence Of My Enemies
Thou Anoitest My Head With Oil
My Cup Runneth Over
Surely  Goodness And Mercy Shall Follow Me All The Days Of My Life
And I Shall Dwell In The House Of The Lord
Forever and Forever
Amen

Its been a HOTT minute, and now i’m back, had to really gather my thoughts on a couple of situations, go to war on a couple of battles I was fighting in my head, but now I have OVERCOME and returned back to my spiritual way of thinking.

I’ve had a couple of TRIALS & TRIBULATIONS in my life, I never realise how hard these are until maybe after when i’m looking back in HINDSIGHT. Many at times I would think to myself “why me”, “why am I going through this situation”, “why am I all alone in this situation”. I would call the fam, but they are too FAR AWAY, I would call my FRIENDS, but they weren’t really able to answer my question and the reassurance is never really ENOUGH… What do I do… Ummm…

The hardest time in my life for me to date was when I was sent to FRANCE for an academic year. People didn’t realise how hard it was, to be ALONE in another country, where not just the language is a BARRIER, but the culture shocks you so HARD t you potential bestfriend is DEPRESSION. The people you hang around with or speak to just make you more ANGRY, more EMOTIONAL and more AFRAID.

So what did I do…? What do you do when you’re going somewhere and your lost, or your looking to go somewhere but your not sure how to get there, mate, you look out for Road Signs or holla @ Tom-Tom and that’s exactly what I did; I picked up my BIBLE and started to read. I went over familiar scriptures and they lead me to ones I had never ENCOUNTERED. I believe God spoke to me and directed my thoughts towards His Road Rules of LIFE; the 66 Chapter (barring, courtesy of Lecrae… lol) love letter He had purposely constructed for me, the manual to UNDERSTANDING my DESIGN, the SIGNPOSTS to my PURPOSE. I became fluent in my education and communication with GOD and somehow it FULL FILLED whatever hollow space fear had ENGRAVED in my SOUL. I realised that no matter what CIRCUMSTANCE you are going through, whatever PIT you may think you are in, there’s always SIGNPOSTS, clues and obligations to aid you.

“The Lord Is My Shepard, I Shall Not Want” (Psalm 23:1)

This scripture comes from my favourite chapter in the BIBLE, it illustrates how GOD is our keeper, our leader, our GUIDE, knowing this, we shall never be in want because he “Resoreth my soul” (Psalm 23:3). If I had really known who my Father was, who He is in that situation, I would not even of bothered myself as much as I did, looking for resassurance in tangible things and in people. Looking back in hindsight, I now know that GOD had a PLAN; in order for me to understand His MAGNITIDE, His STRENGTH, His LOVE for me, He put me in a situation where everyone else failed, but He PREVAILED – “Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails” (Proverbs 19:21). Without that EXPERIENCE I would still be the uncomfortable, FRIGHTENED, INSECURE INDIVIDUAL that I was when I walked into the situation. If any of you know the In’s and Out’s, the STRUGGLES that took me to FRANCE, you would hold WITNESS to the UNMISTAKEABLE MOVEMENTS of my Father and the Purpose He had for ME.

PSALM 139

O LORD, you have searched me and have known me.
You know my downsitting and my uprising; You understand my thought afar off.
You sift and search out my path and my lying down,
And You are acquainted with all my ways.
For there is not a word in my tongue, but, behold, O Lord, You know it altogether.
You have beset me and shut me in–behind and before,
And You have laid Your hand upon me.
Your knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high above me, I cannot reach it.
Where could I go from Your Spirit?
Or where could I flee from Your presence?
If I ascend up into heaven,
You are there; if I make my bed in Sheol, behold,
You are there.
If I take the wings of the morning or dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
Even there shall Your hand lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me.
If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me and the night shall be light about me,
Even the darkness hides nothing from You, but the night shines as the day; the darkness and the light are both alike to You.
For You did form my inward parts;
You did knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I will confess and praise You for You are fearful and wonderful and for the awful wonder of my birth!
Wonderful are Your works, and that my inner self knows right well.
My frame was not hidden from You when I was being formed in secret intricately and curiously wrought in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance, and in Your book all the days were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there was none of them.
How precious and weighty also are Your thoughts to me, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
If I could count them, they would be more in number than the sand. When I awoke, I would still be with You.
If You would slay the wicked, O God, and the men of blood depart from me
Who speak against You wickedly, Your enemies who take Your name in vain!
Do I not hate them, O Lord, who hate You?
And am I not grieved and do I not loathe those who rise up against You?
I hate them with perfect hatred; they have become my enemies.
Search me, O God, and know my heart!
Try me and know my thoughts!
And see if there is any wicked or hurtful way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
