Today as we take a break from our normal posts, I encourage you to be still for just a few minutes and take some time to meet with God. God is all around us; we just have to take the time to experience Him. Psalm 46:10 encourages us to, “Be still and know that I am God.

I’ve been reading through II Chronicles during my daily devotions and I have to admit that it’s been very interesting reading about the all of the different kings. A few days ago I read about King Jehoram. He was a wicked man. II Chronicle 21:6b says, “He did evil in the eyes of the Lord.” He was only king for eight years but during his reign he killed his brothers and he turned the people to evil ways. He “caused the people of Jerusalem to prostitute themselves and had led Judah astray.

Lest you think that Jehoram had a horrible example growing up, II Chronicles 20:31b says that his father, Jehoshaphat, “did what was right in the eyes of the Lord.” He had no excuse because he knew the right path.

Sadly, Jehoram never changed his ways and ended up dying a rather gruesome death. He was afflicted with a disease and “his bowels came out because of the disease, and he died in great pain.” Here’s the real kicker and the part in this story that got me thinking. “He passed away, to no one’s regret, and was buried in the City of David, but not in the tombs of the kings.” 

When I read this I couldn’t help but think that he lived his life in vain. What good did he do? I mean, no one cared that he died. So I had to ask myself what kind of life am I living. Am I making a difference in the lives of others?

At the end of my life, I don’t want to pass away “to no one’s regret.” If that was the case, I think it would be hard for the Lord to be proud of me and the life I lived.

What about you? Are you living the life God has called you to?
