I believe Joyce Meyer is an anointed teacher in Christ. Her life’s goal is to teach love, save souls, and help others live a successful life in Christ. Her current title, Power Thoughts, is s a follow-up to Battlefield of the Mind.

Joyce Meyer tells readers/listeners to use Power Thoughts - to put each power thought into action. She tells us to stop and pray during the process and ask God to change our thinking so we can change our lives. At the end of each section are the words ‘Think About It.” Joyce wants you to think about each section and answer the questions. In the book format she includes a place to write comments. In Part II she adds the words “Power Pack,” which is a group of scriptures. She also recommends using certain reference to look up scriptures for particular situations in our lives. Meyer recommends the concordance in your Bible or the topic index. You can also use an online Bible or Bible software program. She mentions two of her other titles as well: The Secret Power of Confessing God’s Word and The Everyday Life Bible. I have the latter and use it daily.

Her goal is to help Christians remove the landmines of self-doubt, fear, and anxiety. She uses true stories, antidotes and scripture to explain the process of conquering our negative thoughts, seeing past the obstacles, and moving forward. The best thing a Christian can do with the book/audio is to read/listen, contemplate – and be honest with yourself. Meyer tells us it’s a matter of being positive and believing God can change us for the better. With scripture, faith and a better attitude, we will.

Here are the chapters listed in the book.
