Better to be Disabled

Hi, I'm Joni Eareckson Tada and when someone wants to pray for me to get up out of my wheelchair, I'm quick to tell them I need a bigger healing them that. I want them to pray that I get rid of my selfish spirit. I can see in their eyes they don't quite believe me, but I believe God would prefer I have a more pure heart over me getting out of this wheelchair. How do I know? Jesus himself says, “If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away.” Our Savior is telling us that when it comes to Godly priorities, He would rather see us disabled physically… than spiritually. And that’s my prayer for you today. Before you beg God to change your lot in life, ask Him first to heal your heart. Because it is the best miracle of all!
