Have you ever wished for a way to make time slow down? Thatís impossible you say.
Yes, it may be impossible to truly make time go slower, but there is a way to make our perception of time slow down. It is through the Biblical discipline of fasting.
People who fast, especially for longer periods of time, often report their perception of the passing of time changes. The clock seems to slow down for them.
Another benefit of fasting is the increased amount of time we can spend in any given day with the Lord. Isaiah 58 gives us a description of the type of fast that pleases God. It involves replacing time we would normally spend on cooking, eating, and cleaning up our food with focusing on the things of God and searching our hearts before Him.
The combination of slowing our perception of time along with freeing more of our time each day, makes fasting an excellent method of redeeming the time.
