Walk Carefully

Bible Reading: Psalms 8:30-36

When I go walking in the nearby hills I take a stout stick to help me walk on steep, narrow paths where the going is rough and rocky.

Recently a light fall of snow in the night had covered the street outside my home. As the morning sun melted the patches of snow and ice it left the surface slippery, and I trod carefully towards the bus stop.

Later, reading Psalm 121, I noticed the phrase ‘He will not let your foot be moved.’ I had always loved the verse in Psalm 18 about the feet of the deer (v. 33) and particularly the words ‘my feet did not slip’ because ‘You gave me a wide place for my steps under me’ (v. 36).

These words are not only about walking in difficult places.

There are hazardous situations in our lives when we could slip out of God’s will by making wrong decisions, or even fall into sin.

But even when we are careless or unwary, God is wide awake and watchful. He is able to keep us from falling (Jude 24).

Prayer: Lord, thank you for your constant care for me, and for those I love and care for. Amen
