What a Find!
welcome to today's encouragement from our daily bread my name is Tom Felton and I titled are reading what a find
 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 young man on his 18th 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 had died in 1995 his once hidden note brought joy to Jennifer in the Man's family
 in Second Kings 22:8 reread that hilkiah 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 of Judah itself God and the reading of an obedience to the scripture seed 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
 today our Bibles contains 66 books they reveal God's wisdom and instruction including Deuteronomy as we read and listen to them may the Holy Spirit transform our mind reform our ways
 dive into the life-changing story of scripture today and find wisdom to explore for a lifetime
 today's our daily bread devotional scripture reading is from 2nd Kings chapter 22 verses 8 through 12
 Takeya the high priest said to shop on the secretary I have found the book of the law and the Temple of the Lord he gave it to shopping who read it then shop in the secretary went to the king and report it to him your officials have paid out the money that was in the temple of the Lord and have entrusted it to the workers and supervisors at the temple then shop in the secretary informed the king Micaiah 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 ropes he gave these orders to hilkiah the priest a hi Kim Son of shopping for Son of Micaiah shop on the secretary and Isaiah the king's 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
