Turtle on a Fence Post

I heard someone say in seminary, “If you see a turtle on a fence post, you know it didn’t get there by itself.” I didn’t fully comprehend what was meant by it at the time, but I have since come to realize a little more of the power of that statement. Sometimes I feel like a turtle that isn’t worth much and can’t really do anything amazing. My best means of survival is to shrink into my shell and hide until the threat is gone. However, just like that turtle on the fence post, God has placed me, as His child, exactly where He wants me to be. The same is true for every believer. Wherever you are, you are there for a reason and just like that turtle on the fence post, it is to make people think about the One who put you there. Our purpose as believers is to let our light shine before men that they may see our good deeds and glorify our Father in Heaven. Whether you are a preacher, teacher, janitor, bus driver, sanitation worker, stay at home mom or whatever else, then be the most spirit filled one around. If you are recently retired or have been retired a long time and wonder how you will be productive in this new stage of life, remember God still has a purpose for you as long as you have the breath of life in you. Just like Ezekiel called the Spirit of God to fill the bodies that were once dry bones, stand strong in the Spirit as a member of the Kingdom of God and be accounted for. If you feel like all you can do is pray, then offer up the most Spirit filled prayers you can. The fact is, it’s not about us and what we can or can’t do. It’s about us being obedient to God and displaying His glory as much as possible, just like that turtle on a fence post.
