Godís Wheelchair

READ: Psalm 46
His throne was a fiery flame, its wheels a burning fire. óDaniel 7:9

Jean Driscoll is a remarkable athlete. She has won the Boston Marathon eight times. She has also participated in four Paralympic Games and won five gold medals. Born with spina bifida, Jean competes in a wheelchair.

One of Driscollís favorite Bible verses is Daniel 7:9, ďThe Ancient of Days was seated . . . . His throne was a fiery flame, its wheels a burning fire.Ē Seeing a connection between Danielís vision of God and her own situation, she is able to pass along words of encouragement to others. ďAnytime Iíve had an opportunity to talk with people who use wheelchairs and feel bad about being in a chair, I tell them, ĎNot only are you made in the image of God, but your wheelchair is made in the image of His throne!íĒ

Danielís vision, of course, doesnít portray God as being impaired in motion. In fact, some see Godís ďwheelchairĒ as a symbol of a just God sovereignly moving within human affairs. Other passages speak of Godís providence providing help to those who believe (Prov. 3:25-26; Matt. 20:29-34; Eph. 1:11).

Jean Driscollís faith in God has helped her triumph over personal challenges. We too can be confident that the high and holy One is near and ready to help us if only we ask (Ps. 46). óDennis Fisher

He cannot fail, your faithful God;
Heíll guard you with His mighty power;
Then fear no ill though troubles rise,
His help is sure from hour to hour. óBosch

With God behind you and His arms beneath you, you can face whatever lies ahead of you. óWard
