Have you ever cried out, “Help, I need a word from God!” Then let me tell you about the wonder of holding a different kind of Bible in your hands that will answer the cry of your heart.
Richard Mull, editor of God Speaks Bible knows full well how important it is to "hear" God's voice and to recognize wherever He speaks throughout Scripture. Mull's new, color-coded publication highlights every word that God has spoken.
This new Bible study tool will help you understand that God's voice is neither limited by time, nor restrained by our circumstances. He speaks at night when we can’t fall asleep. We hear Him at daybreak when our day begins with anxiety and uncertainty. He speaks on the sandy shores as we watch the roaring waves and gaze at the beauty of a boundless ocean. His word brings solace to our grief as we stand at the grave site of a loved one.
Mothers hear the sound of His voice above the din of the dishwasher. God’s voice interrupts the making of a grocery list, house cleaning, and sorting the laundry. Dads remember His words as they drive to work on busy highways. God’s voice rises above the toot of horns, the rub of tires, cutthroat, reckless driver, and gridlock. He speaks through His Word to the heart of a carpenter pounding nails, to the frightened soldier dodging enemy fire on the battlefield, to the hardened criminal languishing in jail, and to the powerful and powerless.
God’s voice can be heard by all ages.
Teen-agers pay attention to His Word when a friend dies from an overdose, a car wreck, or suicide. It penetrates adolescent arrogance and brings a wayward son or daughter back home. Young children hear God’s voice when a Sunday school teacher leads them to Christ, or when they gather around the dinner table to recite a verse before meals.
God’s voice penetrates the blight of the homeless and changes the heart of the hopeless. He speaks and His words reach deep into jungles of the Amazon. Savage killers abandon their spears and take up the “Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God” (Ephesians 6:17). And unreached tribes shed their tribal traditions to put on the “breastplate of righteousness” because His, “Word is truth” (John 17:17).
His voice is a compass that maps out a new direction for our lives. “This is the way,” He says, “walk in it” (Isaiah 30:20). It protects us from danger and leads us in “paths of righteousness” (Psalm 23:3). Though that path may lead to valleys deep, His voice is like the Shepherd’s staff that guides us through dangerous gullies and over life’s rushing streams. When He speaks, the depth of our valley cannot overwhelm us. His voice that calmed tumultuous seas, assures us that even when we walk through the Valley of the Shadow of death, He’s there (Psalms 23:4). He speaks the word, and like heavy rain cascading from the heavens, it washes away our sorrows. Our clouds of grief become beautiful rainbows of cherished promises.
God’s speaks through the Scriptures to those who stand behind the pulpit and to those who sit in the pew. Great men bow in humble submission to the power of His Word. Evil men have sought to destroy the Scriptures through which He speaks, but they have failed; and will fail. For He Who uses the Scriptures to communicate to us, hath declared: “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever” (Isaiah 40:8).

It will always be the only authoritative voice of God. To study the Bible is the only way to have a personal, permanent relationship with its Author.
