style=”color: black; font-family: verdana;”>Is
the battle in your mind raging? Here is how to win it.

Your
thought life determines your whole life. The enemy wants you chained
to hopeless, powerless, and worthless thoughts so you don’t trust
your victorious God. Do you ever think, I
can’t do this . . . I’ll never be . . . I’m not good enough . . .
There is no way . . . 
?

The
enemy lies, but what supersedes those lies is truth. Truth, when
seized, has the power to speak louder than fear, insecurity, and
worry. Only by exchanging the lies of the enemy for the mind of
Christ will your mind become truly rewired, renewed, and
transformed.

In
Take Every Thought
Captive
,
Kelly Balarie shows you how to
·
immediately recognize the lies of the enemy
·
effectively replace those lies with God’s truth
·
continually connect with the mind of Christ
·
proactively recognize schemes of the enemy before they start

Your
mind doesn’t have to hold you back any longer; God’s truth has all
power
to
set you free.

My Review:

style=”color: black; font-family: verdana;”>As
Christians, we know we have the mind of Christ. We know we are to
renew our minds. I have read many books encouraging me in those
areas. This is the first book I have read that actually has a
practical plan to really work on controlling my thoughts and
renewing my mind. And if we don’t quite get the teaching, Balarie
gives several examples of how the process works.

style=”color: black; font-family: verdana;”>She
has a stop/start strategy. She helps us learn how to capture the
thought and identify the underlying belief. She then helps identify
the speaker, God, the enemy, or our flesh. We think about what
maintaining this thought would ultimately produce. Then we start
doing something new, submitting to the mind of Christ, see what door
we opened to lead to this thought, repent, renounce, and pray. Then
she helps us go a new way and shows us how to guard our heart and
mind for the future. She provides a worksheet at her website to help
us specifically work through this process.

style=”color: black; font-family: verdana;”>This
is a great book. I highly recommend it. It is the most enlightening
and practical one I have read on renewing our mind.

rating: 5/5 stars.
