2024: THE YEAR OF FIXED PURPOSE
Corporate Fast Guidance
Join VCMI for a corporate fast beginning on 2 Jan and ending the morning of 23, Jan 2024. We are fasting/abstaining from meats and sweets. We are asking each family to select 1 day of the week to do a complete fast water only. This is a time of praying, talking, seeking and listening to God. Use this daily prayer devotional to declare the Year of Fixed purpose over you, your family and the VCMI family. The Year of Fixed Purpose “Set your gaze on the path before you. With fixed purpose, looking straight ahead, ignore life’s distraction.” Proverbs 4:25 TPT
2024 is the Year of Fixed Purpose, so join us as we read the book of Proverbs daily in January. Please download the 31-day bible reading guide. It has instructions, a link to the bible, and questions to answer. Please link up with family, friends, or a community group or your ministry to discuss the revelation you receive. For questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
