There are three meanings of the will of God [1]:

  1. Sovereign decretive will is the will by which God brings to pass whatsoever He decrees. This is hidden to us until it happens.
  2. Preceptive will is God's revealed law or commandments, which we have the power but not the right to break.
  3. Will of disposition describes God's attitude or disposition. It reveals what is pleasing to Him.
