It started good, even telling you what to do if your prayer is not granted. However she totally ignored God's ordering the Jews to spend 40 years in the desert until all that generation was dead for refusing His order to go into the promised land.(Numbers 14) Instead she spends 10 chapters expounding on the imaginary "desert mentality" that made them do it and how to overcome it.
I read this book originally about 2 years ago (borrowed from my mom) and did not think I really needed it at the time, although I loved it and it really did change some of my thought process. Recently, I've dealt with anxiety and depression over some wonderful life changing events. The devil started to bring worry, fear, and doubt into my mind. I was overthinking, over analyzing, second guessing and literally driving myself plum crazy. I was crying all the time because I did not know why I was thinking terrible negative thoughts. My heart and spirit were not aligned with my mind and I did not have control over my thought processing. I let the devil control what fell into my head therefore leading to my anxiety and depression. I actually went to my physician and he prescribed zoloft for me. I felt that wasn't enough. I did not want medication to just make me feel better. I wanted to get to the root cause of my problem. The next day, God led me to this book. Ever since then, I have felt a world of a difference. Things are getting easier for me and I am now in control of my mind and my life once again. When negativity strikes, I know how to put it away. My life is finally back on track and God is in control of my mind. Joyce Meyer is not God, but she is a wonderful disciple of God and leads people to Him and His way of thinking. Thank you, Joyce! I love you!
