The pitch black was cut in half by a sudden flash. It zapped; it sang and jumped into existence. It had never been seen before. But God spoke and light appeared; creation began.
Out of nothing light came. From nowhere it appeared. It had existed in God alone and required nothing more than His spoken Word to become reality.
Then waters could be heard as they gurgled, gulped and splashed into being. They gathered above; clouds, heavens and the air born moisture of life. They gathered below and the sea was formed; barriers erected to keep the earth dry. When God speaks, miracles happen.
At His Word little green shoots appeared on the earth and trees hung with heavy branches; loaded with lush, delicious, mouth watering fruits of every kind. Their sudden appearance was a delight in the eyes of the Creator of all things. He smiled; it was good.
Another amazing performance of light was the next spectacular event. Greater than any laser light show the sun exploded into view, the moon waved its first course across the sky and the existence of time, seasons, days and nights rolled out their first round of applause.
What an incredibly exciting way the world began. The Word of God has the power to create life out of nothing. And the power to change life.
I know; it changed mine.
My life was a mess. Like many other lives I have known and messes that I have seen. But the voice of God changed it all. And what's more, for me, it was just as exciting as those first days of creation.
Awesome lights lit up every room of my life as God revealed things that needed to be changed. The living waters of His Creative Word penetrated my barren soul and green sprouts of new life jumped to the surface. I was brought out of darkness into the light and my life, thank heavens, will never be the same miserable mess again.
God has spoken.
The Word of God is now my greatest love. I love to read and study His Word and my life changes every time I get a new revelation of what my Father is saying.
And studying the Word of God just got better.
I can't begin to explain the new excitement that set even more lights flashing and glowing in God's Word when I came across the "God Speaks Bible". Just glancing over the pages of this new study Bible brought the Word of God to new life and filled me with a sense of vibrant colour and exciting life.
Imagine picking up your Bible and with just one glance you suddenly hear God speaking directly to you. And even more, you could see and know in an instant when an angel or a dream was revealing God's heart. Your intimacy with your Heavenly Dad would leap to new levels and your understanding of His ways would leap with it. And the side benefits are amazing.
The Word tells us that healing, deliverance and miracles come into our lives every time we get eyes to see and ears to hear what the Word is saying. When you share a cup of coffee with your friends and open the Word of God, you open the door of opportunity for the power of God to draw close and work wonders in your life. What a wonderful thought.
Who wouldn't like to put the kettle on, make a cuppa and sit down for a personal moment with the God of all creation? That's what it would be like every time you open the "God Speaks Bible".
Please, don't take my word for it. Go and see for yourself. Visit the web site of the "God Speaks Bible", open up their example pages and see the awesome display of God speaking with your own eyes.
