He then went in search of Ahaziah, and his men captured him while he was hiding in Samaria. He was brought to Jehu and put to death. They buried him, for they said, “He was a son of Jehoshaphat, who sought the Lord with all his heart.” -2 Chronicles 22:9
Jehoshaphat’s legacy of faith in God was so well known that his son was given a proper burial as a result. In a time when wickedness prevailed, the people remembered one man of God who had lived according to his ways. He was known because he “sought the Lord with all his heart.”
We often wonder how we would like to be known or what legacy we would like to leave. I know how I want to be known. I want people to say Dillon Burroughs sought the Lord with all his heart. If so, mission accomplished.
The problem is that this statement cannot be purchased or easily acquired. It must be earned. Only a deep, daily abiding walk with Christ will result in a life known for seeking God fully. We walk this path each moment of each day, not knowing when we will breathe our last breath. But God does. Until then, may we live with the attitude of seeking the Lord with all our heart.
