We are going to have battles but Meyer assures us we are in a place where we have victory in Christ. “When we let God fight our battles, we always win...” (Loc 73/3383) God will fight our battles for us, Meyer says, but we must do our part. She has written this book to help us know our enemy, his nature, his tactics, how to recognize and defeat him and to know our responsibilities in assuring the victory.
What I like most about Meyer is that she is so practical. She wants us to be educated and equipped. It is no surprise that she writes about the importance of our thoughts, keeping them in line with what God says is true of us. We are to take our thoughts captive and I like that she is realistic in saying this takes time and effort. She reminds us of the spiritual battles before us and helps us understand how to use our spiritual weapons, such as the armor of God.
Meyer is so encouraging and so positive. Reading this book, even though it is on the battles we face, is really faith building. Her stories are encouraging and her exploration of Scripture is accurate. I like that she relies so much on the truth of God's Word.
I recommend this book to Christians who want to understand more about the battles we face and how to put ourselves in a place of victory. Meyer gives us the tools we need to use to see victory. “No matter how difficult our challenges are,” she writes, “if God is with us, we have all we need to win every battle.” (Loc 64/3383)
