Your mind is a BATTLEGROUND, but
We have all experienced battles with thoughts that need to be diffused and
defeated. We have all battled mental strongholds, though we may not
have realized it.  A stronghold of the mind is a lie that Satan has established
in our thinking that we count as true but is actually a false belief.  When we
embrace these lies, they affect our attitudes, emotions, and behaviors.
God wants all of His children to walk in victory and freedom in their thought
lives.  But the Bible tells us that we have an evil and deceptive enemy who is
“the father of lies and of all that is false” (John 8:44, AMP).
Defeating Strongholds of the Mind explains how Satan traps us in lies and
false perceptions.  It shows us how to partner with God, enter into worship,
and embrace our kingdom identity to gain victory through:
  • Identifying thinking patterns that can become strongholds
  • Explaining how certain types of entertainment can negatively influence our thinking
  • Offering specific prayers to bring victory in the mental battles we fight
  • Sharing stories from people who have overcome the deceptions, struggles, and strongholds in their minds

Defeating the Strongholds of the Mind by Rebecca Greenwood is worth reading and rereading in order to empower the reader to identify, confront and destroy destructive thoughts and beliefs.  Not many believers understand the concept of the power of mental strongholds, or the Holy Spirit and that we are all called to fight against the devil, our Enemy. Nevertheless, strongholds are the driving force between the failures and the tragedies in countless lives, even Christians. The author present scriptural background and bible passages from the old and new testaments to share with the reader that each of us is called to resist and fight against the devil's mental strongholds with the power of the Holy Spirit.  This book is a 101 course in identifying sin and the corresponding lies of Satan that keep us enslaved.  Rich in scripture, Greenwood leaves no doubt that she indeed has a special calling to deliver a life saving message through this book.   Much of the book is an invaluable resource where the authors have taken scriptural truths and promises- and relate them to the modern day believer to use and apply when facing any mental stronghold from the enemy.  The scriptural references  will empower any reader with a quick resource of how to respond in faith to any difficulty- large and small.  It is a spiritual self help book in the fact that it will allow the reader the tools to look within himself and identify any areas or issues where Satan has his foothold.  Not only that it tells the reader how to face and address these issues! For those who are at a loss of how to begin to approach their spiritual problems there are a number of sample prayers applicable to any number of situations. This book is written for everyone, as "none of us are excused from the need to overcome wrong beliefs", (Greenwood, 2015 p. 1) Proverbs 23:7 further testifies to the power of words and thoughts as well as the power of lies from Satan to leave us astray. This is a book worthy of leaving by one's bedside- a companion resource to turn to.  It is no overestimation to say this is a life changing book.  As a blogger for the Booketeria I received this book published by Charisma House for the purpose of writing this review.
