You can "know" God's voice just as certainly…

When Jesus was asked what was the greatest commandment, he replied and said: “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.

You need a working knowledge of God’s Word! Yes — you do. And I do too.
