Battlefield of the Mind by Joyce Meyer

*book 2 of 2011

In all honesty, this is a good book but it's effect got a little "lost" with me because of scheduling conflicts with my Bible Study group and sporadic reading due to that. I got the most from it in the times when I just sat down and went ahead and read ahead and soaked it all in. The gist of what I gained from it is knowing that in times like RIGHT NOW when there is a lot going on - the devil uses those times to work on us and get us down. When we get into ourselves and "pity parties", the devil wins because we aren't living for God. We aren't letting his love and light shine through us. Keeping negative thoughts in our mind will breed negative attitudes. When worry and stress kick in, stop and pray. Sometimes, easier said than done! Here is a little excerpt I found on the internet if you are interested in reading:

There is a war going on and your mind is the battlefield.

God desires the best for your life and Satan knows it. Satan wants to defeat God’s people with a deliberate and cleverly devised plan of deceit and lies. His attack of doubting thoughts, fear and paranoia can erode your resistance, because he is willing to invest any amount of time it takes to defeat us.

God’s people will win! They can use His Word to defeat the treachery and lies of Satan. In Battlefield of the Mind, author Joyce Meyer uncovers the tactics of the enemy and gives you a clear-cut plan to triumph in the fight for your mind. Joyce will teach you how to renew your mind through the Word and stand victoriously in the battlefield of the mind.
