For further reading see 2 Kings 22:11-20
Shockingly, God’s people had wandered so far away they lost God’s words to them. Under King Josiah, the book of the Law is found again, but they need someone to verify this is what it is. This is important, so that they know if they need to start following what it says. This then is one of the most significant prophetic acts in the Old Testament. They immediately seek out Huldah, suggesting she was a prophet of high standing. After all, her authentication here stands behind a key portion of Scripture we hold sacred today. The result of her prophecy is instant and important; King Josiah renews God’s covenant with his people. While we are unlikely to lose the Bible today, we do find ourselves sometimes forgetting or getting wrong key teachings. Those like Huldah and Josiah who call us back to lives based on Scripture are a gift from God.
Question: What parts of Scripture do you think the Church needs to revisit today?
Prayer: Lord, your people find it hard to keep your whole counsel, and so do I. Please reveal to me those areas in which I need to hear you again. Amen
