Put on the armor of God, conquer your problems, and know your real enemy with renowned Bible teacher and New York Times bestselling author, Joyce Meyer.
Have you ever felt you tried every solution on earth to solve a problem, but nothing worked? Have you ever wondered where the difficulties you face are coming from? Joyce Meyer has answers.
In Your Battles Belong to the Lord, Meyer explains that while some problems may result from a person's choices or circumstances, others are rooted in the spiritual realm. Once you recognize the devil -- who is real and active in the world today -- as your true enemy and the source of many of your struggles, you can overcome them and live a life of peace, freedom, faith and victory. When facing life's battles, there are certain things you must do for yourself, such as:Diligently studying and applying God's WordTrusting HimPrayingMaintaining a positive attitude and thankful heart
But there are other things only God can do. When you do your part, God does His-and He is always ready and eager to defend you and help you.
Each chapter of the book helps you understand how the enemy operates and learn to counter his schemes and strategies so you can live at a new level of strength. Chapter titles include: "Know Your Enemy," "Eliminate Fear," "How the Devil Tries to Deceive People," "Hold Your Peace," "The Power of a Thankful Life," and "Internal Rest."
In this fresh approach to the subject of spiritual warfare, Meyer focuses not only on the nature and strategies of the enemy, but also on the power and love of God, who always defeats the enemy and leads you to triumph. No matter how difficult your challenges are, if you have God with you, you have all you need to win every battle.
Meyer (Battlefield of the Mind) takes on the devil and gives readers ways to understand and fight his influence in this empowering effort. Knowing the enemy and how he operates is the key to winning this ongoing battle, she suggests. Lies, fear, and self-doubt are the main weapons Meyer believes the devil uses to wage war on faith. In revisiting themes from her previous books, Meyer asks believers to be alert and offers tools to fight against sinful behaviors: renewing one's mind through studying scripture, spending time in prayer and praise, putting on "the armor of God" by giving oneself over to faith, and surrendering completely to God's will. She uses examples from biblical tales like the prodigal son and Gideon, as well as personal experiences, to help readers understand God's nature (as well as the nefarious effects of sin). In one of the book's most helpful sections, she considers more insidious, hard-to-recognize ways that believers can be influenced into turning away from God, including doubt, selfishness, and the refusal to forgive. Meyer's vociferous refutation of the devil will be of interest to Christians looking for reinforcements in the daily battles of living a life of faith.
