Your Battles Belong to the Lord: Know Your Enemy and Be More Than a Conqueror

Joyce Meyer. FaithWords, $22.99 trade paper (256p) ISBN 978-1-5460-2627-3
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. (Sept.)
