This latest book by Joyce Meyer is her follow-up to her best-selling "Battlefield of the Mind"--the "next step"--which gives you "specific insights and strategies to help you build powerful mind-sets to empower you to live in a place of strength, success, and victory every day". And it truly delivers. The author writes that the mind "can be a junkyard or a treasure chest" and in this book, she shows how. I would consider this not a book to be read over lightly, but a manual to be read once and then studied, digested, and most of all--practiced in daily life.
The book has two parts. The first part gives a general overview of why the mind is a battlefield, why we as Christians must take every thought captive, and how this is done. It has been years and years since "Battlefield of the Mind" came out (and thus years and years since I read it) but it seems to me that the first part would be an overview or refresher on what that book covered. Once you understand the basic principles involved, you are ready to go on to the second part. The second part is the meat of the book--a group of specific tools--12 beliefs that are vital in a Christian's life in order to live in victory. Each belief is one chapter and at the end of the chapter there is a "Power Pack" of Scriptures that the belief is based on for you to memorize. I found the structure of the book really helpful in being able to use it on an ongoing basis.
I read the book last night and today, but am going to be working with it for far longer. I'm going to write the Scriptures down for memorization and (as the book suggests) focus each week for the next 12 weeks on one of the beliefs. The first one is "I can do whatever I need to do in life through Christ". Another is, "I am difficult to offend." The last is "I put God first in my life." Now these may seem elementary and obvious, but it is surprising when you read the book and answer the thought questions interspersed throughout each chapter, how many of them we might forget in daily life. These questions are called "Think About It' and help you apply each belief to your own life. For example, I identified that I don't believe the best of other people; instead, I believe the worst so that I'm prepared no matter what happens, and then am pleasantly surprised if something better happens. This might work for me on some levels, but it isn't Scriptural! (Or effective!)
The author is like a personal coach or "cheerleader in a book" who is endlessly upbeat, cheering you on as you read. If you are a newcomer to Christ, or to victorious Christian living, you will find much support in this book. On the other hand, if you are a mature Christian, long-time veteran of different Bible studies and programs, you won't find new or unusual information here, but fresh encouragement and/or (as I did) a kick and a jump-start to help you get unstuck from the rut you may be in in your Christian walk. In practical terms, this books walks you through, step by step, everything you need to do to take every thought captive and to begin thinking thoughts that are based on Biblical truth and that lead to a joyful and abundant life.
This book is definitely for any Christian reader; it is interdenominational and doesn't reflect a Pentecostal theology (as do some of the author's books). This is information we can all agree on!
