Before you examine the methods God uses to speak to man to reveal His will, you must have some basic knowledge about the will of God. Previous chapters defined what is meant by “the will of God” and identified ways of seeking guidance which are wrong.

This chapter presents basic facts about the will of God, explains two major divisions of that will, examines the pattern of God’s will, and discusses the believer’s development in knowing the voice of God.
