Looking back on the years that I have lived with quadriplegia, I’ve survived and I have thrived on the promise of Philippians 2:13. God promises us there to give us the desire and the power to do what pleases him.
Left to my own devices, paralyzed in this wheelchair, I have no desire, nor do I have the inclination, nor power to live in a way that pleases God. So, if I want to thrive, or even survive, I say, “Jesus, please give me the desire. Give me the yearning to live like I should, as well as the power to do it. Because only in pleasing you will I be happy and be able to do life with a smile.”
And you know what? God is always, always, always good on that promise in Philippians 2 verse 13. So look it up and do more than survive. Come on, get out there and thrive.
