Unbelievers become anxious because of their unknown futures. Consequently, they seek fortunetellers and visit shamans when problems occur. The problem is that Christians also worry about their futures. God has given you the accurate method to know His will about the future. There is something you must confirm through this method.
1. Old Frames
The Israelites were locked in the frame of their old ideology. They possessed a slave mentality, wilderness mentality, captive mentality, and colonization mentality. Also, they were seized by religious legalism, unhealthy mysticism, and humanism. Eventually, seven disasters came upon them. The people who broke these frames were the Remnants and those who raised Remnants. If you just hold onto God’s covenant, you can break your “old frames.”
2. New Frames
The Early Church enjoyed Christ, God’s Kingdom, and “only Holy Spirit.”(Acts 1:1, 3, and 8) God attached those who staked their lives to these people(Acts 1:14), and He gave the greatest answers to Mark’s upper room(Acts 2:1~47). Even though there was famine throughout the land, the Antioch Church received blessings from God(Acts 11:19~30). Paul’s team instilled “new frames,” and God showed them “new frames.”(Acts 13:1~4, 16:6-10, 19:21, 23:11, and 27:24)
The church of Thessalonica had faith, hope, and love. The Gospel was revealed through God’s power, the Holy Spirit, and great assurance. A walk of faith is going forward with God’s plan instead of your own, going forward with God’s Word instead of your opinions, and looking ahead at God’s future instead of your own future. I hope that the color of faith of the church of Thessalonica becomes yours.
[Covenantal Prayer] Dear God, may I break the “old frames” that do not work, prepare “new frames,” and go into Your true answer. In Jesus Christ’s name I pray. Amen.

[Deep Questions] Q. “What will happen in the future?” “How can I know God’s will?”
The method to know God’s will accurately is C.V.D.I.P.
Covenant - the Extent of the Gospel C stands for Covenant. The covenant is the Gospel. You must know the extent of the Gospel in order to accurately know God’s will. The extent of the Gospel is defined by how much the Gospel has been testified, how important you consider it, and how much you emphasize it.
Vision - the Problems of the Age You must accurately see both the problems of the age and your troubling issues. This is called Vision.
Dream - the Content and Direction of 24 Hours Dream is the content and direction with which you can do “24 hours.”
Image - 25 Hours and Eternity Image is the most important content by which God and man can communicate. When you pray holding to the Word, you will see the work of “25 hours” that transcends the power of man and receive the answer of “eternity.”
Practice - Life Masterpiece Practice is what you actually do. This practice will turn into your life masterpiece.
