Powerful Thinking by Joyce Meyer

Do you want to change your life? The key to changing your life, Meyer says, is changing your thinking. The mind is the spiritual battlefield and it must be renewed to think thoughts in line with the Word.

Meyer draws from two of her previous books, Battlefield of the Mind and Power Thoughts, to create this one. She encourages us to realize the power we have, the ability to control our thoughts. Then she gives us the challenge, to actually do so, change our thinking.

Meyer highlights twelve mindsets for us to develop. She suggests the book could be used as a twelve week study or as a whole year project, concentrating on one mindset each month. She includes practical suggestions to think about and ones to act upon at the end of each of the twelve chapters describing the mindsets.

Meyer writes about fear, being difficult to offend, being present, not worrying, being at peace, and much more. My favorite chapter was Because I am in Christ I am Content and Emotionally Stable. What an encouragement to be satisfied with who God made me to be.

I highly recommend this book. How we think is the basis for what we say and do and how we feel. Meyer gives us the information and tools we need to have our thoughts align with God's truth.
