His throne was a fiery flame, its wheels a burning fire. —Daniel 7:9 Bible in a Year: Psal ms 16-18 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 Driscoll’s favorite Bible verses is Daniel 7:9, “The Ancient of Days was seated . . .  His throne was a fiery flame, its wheels a burning fire.” Seeing a connection between Daniel’s vision of God and her own situation, she is able to pass along words of encouragement to others. “Anytime I’ve had an opportunity to talk with people who use wheelchairs and feel bad about being in a chair, I tell them, ‘Not only are you made in the image of God, but your wheelchair is made in the image of His throne!’” Daniel’s vision, of course, doesn’t portray God as being impaired in motion.
In fact, some see God’s “wheelchair” as a symbol of a just God sovereignly moving within human affairs. Other passages speak of God’s providence providing help to those who believe (Prov. 3:25- 26; Matt. 20:29-34; Eph. 1:11). Jean Driscoll’s 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). He cannot fail, your faithful God; He’ll guard you with His mighty power; Then fear no ill though troubles rise, His help is sure from hour to hour. —Bosch
