A country road in County Down, earlier today, 24 January 2021.
There was snow across parts of Ireland today as well as the UK where there was severe disruption in some places. Today’s was the heaviest of the winter so far. In England and Wales several coronavirus vaccination and testing centres were forced to close due to safety concerns on the roads. There have been widespread weather warnings.
Today’s verse is a prayer. The Psalmist, David, was being hunted by Saul at the time. He probably didn’t need to worry about snow; but nevertheless he faced a life or death situation. He needed to outwit Saul, and remain a step or two ahead of him. Slipping up in any way could be fatal. Hence, his prayer to God for ‘sure steps.’
