After a day at work and having your game face on for 8 hours you could be going through withdrawal from the day. Not just the normal tiredness but a need for some one thing to grab your attention.
The familiar road
Most people follow the familiar road: The cell phone. The designers have made it very easy to navigate. It is programmed to go to your familiar hangouts which are often time-wasting and ungodly.
But we think we need to stop the buzz in our mind. Paul talks about his thorn or buzz in Romans 7:18 ‘For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.’
When you get home, turn off the phone for the evening. Find different activities that are attention-holding. Ask the Holy Spirit to change your focus. He will remove the ‘thorn.’ Don’t be a slave to your sin. Instead listen to God in Romans 8:6: ‘The mind of a sinful person is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirt is life and PEACE.’
