2023: THE YEAR OF REFRESHING & RESTORING
Corporate Fast Guidance
Our Apostles, Tony and Cynthia Brazelton, have been led to dedicate 21 days in January to a time of prayer and fasting. During this time of consecration, we are believing to hear God clearly concerning this Year of Progression. Our spirits will be revived, our souls will be edified, and we will receive clear divine revelation to maximize this season. We will pray, expand our capacity to believe God, and release our faith for advancement in every area of our life! "Now, Lord, do it again! Restore us to our former glory! May streams of your refreshing flow over us until our dry hearts are drenched again." (Psalms 126:4 TPT)
We believe that the message of Progressing Without Limits is still something God is wanting us to pursue - a limitless lifestyle. With that thought in mind, this year of Refreshing and Restoring is very vital. We believe for a fresh outpouring of Holy Ghost on the house of Victory and the restoration of all things.
The world is looking for Jesus and they will find Him in us! The more we discover our true selves, the more people will see Jesus in us. As Jesus is, so are we, in this world. (1 John 4:17)
TIPS ON FASTING FROM MEATS & SWEETS
During the month of January VCMI will be fasting as a church family starting the morning of January 2nd and finishing the morning of January 23rd. We will fast from Meats and Sweets for 21 Days. If it swims, crawl, flies, hop, run or walk it falls in the category of meat. If it’s sweet to the taste outside of pure fruit it falls in the sweets category.
A few helpful tips to guide you in your time of fasting:
Begin your day with Praise and Worship.
Keep a prayer journal. Write out your prayers and scriptures you're standing on. Share your testimonies with family and friends as the prayers are answered.
Read and meditate on the Word of God. As God provide you with revelation from your reading write it down and date it.
Consider using this time to disconnect from social media, television, radio(other than Christian), games, books other than the Word of God (Unless it's school or work related. Remember this is a sacrifice).
Drink plenty of water at all times. While you abstain from certain foods, remember your focus should not be on food. Focus on your life being changed forever because of this time spent in the presence of God.
If you slip up repent and keep moving forward.
