440. Does God Communicate His Will in Any Other Way than by His Word?

We believe that there are special cases of extreme difficulty in which, when guidance is sought, God does reveal to his children the way in which he wishes them to walk. This he does by interpositions of his providence. If we ask him for guidance in our troubles, in the name of his dear Son, he will not deny it. There are some who think they receive direction in dreams, or by casting lots, or by opening a Bible at random and noticing the first passage that catches the eye. It is unwise to give heed to intimations supposed to reach us in such ways. They are utterly untrustworthy and should be disregarded.
