While scuba diving in 2021, Jennifer’s eyes fixed on a small, green bottle at the bottom of a river. She scooped up what she describes as “a once-in-a-lifetime find.” The bottle contained a message written by a young man on his eighteenth birthday in 1926! The words requested that whoever discovered the message return it to him. Jennifer used Facebook to locate a delighted family member of the man. Although he’d died in 1995, his once-hidden note brought joy to Jennifer and his family.

In 2 Kings 22:8, we read that Hilkiah made an extraordinary find when he “found the Book of the Law in the temple of the Lord.” Instructed by King Josiah to “repair the temple” (v. 5), the king’s secretary found what was likely the book of Deuteronomy. “When the king heard the words of the Law,” he was both deeply moved and greatly distressed (v. 11). Like the temple in Judah itself, God and the reading of and obedience to the Scriptures He’d inspired had been neglected by the people. In repentance, the king had the temple swept clean of idols and anything that would displease God as he instituted reforms for his nation (23:1–24).

Today, our Bibles contain sixty-six books that reveal God’s wisdom and instruction—including Deuteronomy. As we read and listen to them, may the Holy Spirit transform our minds and reform our ways. Dive into the life-changing story of Scripture today and find wisdom to explore for a lifetime!

Jennifer used Facebook to locate a delighted family member of the man, although he had died in 1995 is once hidden note brought joy to Jennifer and the man's family and second Kings 22. Eight. Reread that Hezekiah made an extraordinary find when he found the book of the law in the temple of the Lord, the high priest found it was likely the book of Deuteronomy when the king heard the words of the book of the law.

He was both deeply moved and greatly distressed, like the temple and Judah itself. God and the reading of an obedience to the Scripture seat, inspired had been neglected by the people and repentance.

The king had the temple swept clean of idols, and anything that would displease God as he instituted reforms for his nation today. Our Bibles contain 66 books that reveal God's wisdom and instruction including Deuteronomy as we read and listen to them by the Holy Spirit, transform our minds and reform our ways dive into the life-changing story of Scripture today and find wisdom to explore for a lifetime. Today is Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is from second Kings chapter 22 verses eight through 12 Kia the high priest said to shop on the secretary I found the book of the law in the temple of the Lord he gave it to shop and read it. Then shop and the secretary went to the king reported to him. Your officials have paid out the money that was in the temple of the Lord and have entrusted to the workers and supervisors at the temple then shop in the secretary informed the king a coyote. The priest has given me a book and shop and read from it in the presence of the king when the king heard the words of the book of the law. He tore his robes he gave these orders to Hezekiah the priest hi Kim, son of shop on our four son of Michalak shop on the secretary and Isaiah the Kings attendant. Let's pray heavenly father please help us see the things we need to change in our life as we spent time studying the Scriptures. Thank you, Lord. It's in Jesus name we pray. Amen.
