A Personal Word from Joyce Meyer
Everything in life—the decisions we make, the words we speak, and the actions we take—begins in the mind. Before we say or do anything, we think about it. The fact that our thoughts are so powerful and wield so much influence over every area of our lives is why the enemy, Satan, attacks our minds so often and so strategically.
No matter what the enemy does, he is a defeated foe. Jesus has won the victory over him, and He wants us to enjoy the victorious life He died to give us. To enforce the victory Jesus wants us to have, we need to know how to recognize and resist the enemy's attempts to use our thoughts against us.
I have developed this study Bible because I have learned from personal experience that the only way to win the battle of the mind is with the Word of God. The enemy tries to influence us by telling us lies, but we can combat his tactics and overcome him with the Truth. Throughout God's Word, from Genesis to Revelation, we find verses and passages of Scripture that offer the insights and instruction we need to think godly thoughts. I have written various types of notes and commentary on these passages to help you understand what they mean, so you can use them to win the battle Satan tries to wage against your thoughts.
Those notes include:
Each book of the Bible opens with a book introduction summarizing how the book pertains to winning the battle of the mind. The introductions include "Winning Thoughts" from each book, which are important points based on specific verses in the book. The introductions also include "Verses for Victory" from each book, which call your attention to specific verses or passages that arevital to developing a triumphant mind-set.
"WINNING THE BATTLES OF THE MIND" ARTICLES
Each individually titled "Winning the Battles of the Mind" article is a full page that represents my core teachings on the battlefield of the mind, the power of thoughts and words, and the importance of aligning mind-sets with God's Word. These inspiring articles are designed to not only help readers recognize and fight the battles of the mind, but to help them win. Each article closes with "A Prayer for Victory" that you can pray for yourself. You can use them to confirm your faith and affirm your trust in God, or ask for His help in specific ways as you move toward winning the battles of your thought life.
"KEYS TO A VICTORIOUS LIFE" ARTICLES
There are many keys to a life of victory in your mind. These Scripture-based articles are intended to help you recognize, understand, and apply those keys. They also explain the keys to overcoming mental challenges or conflicts and will help you think and speak according to God's Word.
PowerPoints are brief but powerful comments tied to specific Bible verses or biblical principles that provide insight into how to think, speak, or live in order to think as God would have you think and be victorious in your thoughts.

SCRIPTURES on THOUGHTS and WORDS

Many of these passages will have articles or commentary tied to them.
The Bible includes many verses and passages that teach us how God wants us to think and how He wants to speak. Our thoughts and words are extremely powerful, so it is important for them to be in agreement with God's Word.
Throughout this Bible, you will see that I have highlighted many of the scriptures that will help you learn to align your mind and your mouth with the teaching of God's Word. Some of the verses pertain to the idea of believing, remembering, and understanding, because all of these relate directly to the way we think.
I have not highlighted them all because there are so many, but I have called your attention to some of the ones that have been most helpful to me and that I believe will help you too as you seek to honor God and obey His Word in your thinking and with your words.

The book of Genesis is all about beginnings—the beginning of the world, the beginning of humanity, the beginning of family, the beginning of sin, the beginning of God's covenant with mankind, and the beginning of God's relationship with His people. The beginning of a situation or relationship is so important because it often sets the course for everything that follows.
As we think about the battle of the mind, one of the most important points to remember is that all our words and actions begin with a thought. In other words, a thought is the starting point of everything we say and do. I pray that you will understand the important principle of beginnings from the book of Genesis, because the first step to winning the battle of the mind is realizing that everything in your life begins with a thought. If you will align your thoughts with God's thoughts, right words, decisions, and behaviors will follow.
WINNING THOUGHTS FROM GENESIS:
God created you, and everything He created is good (see Genesis 1:31)!
The enemy is crafty, subtle, and very deceitful. He has been trying to influence people since the beginning of humanity (see Genesis 3:1), but because you are in Christ, you do not have to let him succeed. You can overcome him.
What someone else or the enemy intends to harm you, God means for good (see Genesis 50:20).
VERSES FOR VICTORY FROM GENESIS:
If you do well [believing Me and doing what is acceptable and pleasing to Me], will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well [but ignore My instruction], sin crouches at your door; its desire is for you [to overpower you], but you must master it. | Genesis 4:7
Then Abram believed in (affirmed, trusted in, relied on, remained steadfast to) the LORD; and He counted (credited) it to him as righteousness (doing right in regard to God and man). | Genesis 15:6
Behold, I am with you and will keep [careful watch over you and guard] you wherever you may go. | Genesis 28:15
THE FIRST BOOK OF MOSES, COMMONLY CALLED
1 IN THE beginning God (Elohim) created [by forming from nothing] the heavens and the earth. [Heb 11:3]
2The earth was formless and void or a waste and emptiness, and darkness was upon the face of the deep [primeval ocean that covered the unformed earth]. The Spirit of God was moving (hovering, brooding) over the face of the waters.
3And God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light.
4God saw that the light was good (pleasing, useful) and He affirmed and sustained it; and God separated the light [distinguishing it] from the darkness. [2 Cor 4:6]
5And God called the light day, and the darkness He called night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.
6And God said, "Let there be an expanse [of the sky] in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters [below the expanse] from the waters [above the expanse]."
7And God made the expanse [of sky] and separated the waters which were under the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse; and it was so [just as He commanded].
8God called the expanse [of sky] heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.
9Then God said, "Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place [of standing, pooling together], and let the dry land appear"; and it was so.
10God called the dry land earth, and the gathering of the waters He called seas; and God saw that this was good (pleasing, useful) and He affirmed and sustained it.
KEYS to a Victorious Life
Thoughts Lead to Words
Every word begins with a thought. When God created the world, He spoke it into being. Everything He made in the natural realm was first a thought and then a word, and His words had power. For example:
"And God said, 'Let there be light'; and there was light.…
"And God said, 'Let there be an expanse [of the sky] in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters [below the expanse] from the waters [above the expanse].…
"And God said, 'Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place [of standing, pooling together], and let the dry land appear'; and it was so" (Gen. 1:3–9).
Everything God said came to pass. You are created in God's image, and your words also have power. Your words are a result of your thoughts and they affect you and your life, so use them wisely. Believe in and speak in agreement with God's plan for your life, and you will see it come to pass.
11So God said, "Let the earth sprout [tender] vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit according to (limited to, consistent with) their kind, whose seed is in them upon the earth"; and it was so.
12The earth sprouted and abundantly produced vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their kind, and trees bearing fruit with seed in them, according to their kind; and God saw that it was good and He affirmed and sustained it.
13And there was evening and there was morning, a third day.
14Then God said, "Let there be light-bearers (sun, moon, stars) in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be useful for signs (tokens) [of God's provident care], and for marking seasons, days, and years; [Gen 8:22]
15and let them be useful as lights in the expanse of the heavens to provide light on the earth"; and it was so, [just as He commanded].
16God made the two great lights—the greater light (the sun) to rule the day, and the lesser light (the moon) to rule the night; He made the [galaxies of] stars also [that is, all the amazing wonders in the heavens].
17God placed them in the expanse of the heavens to provide light upon the earth,
18to rule over the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good and He affirmed and sustained it.
19And there was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.
20Then God said, "Let the waters swarm and abundantly produce living creatures, and let birds soar above the earth in the open expanse of the heavens."
21God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarmed according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind; and God saw that it was good and He affirmed and sustained it.
22And God blessed them, saying, "Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth."
23And there was evening and there was morning, a fifth day.
24Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to (limited to, consistent with) their kind: livestock, crawling things, and wild animals of the earth according to their kinds"; and it was so [because He had spoken them into creation].
25So God made the wild animals of the earth according to their kind, and the cattle according to their kind, and everything that creeps and crawls on the earth according to its kind; and God saw that it was good (pleasing, useful) and He affirmed and sustained it.
26Then God said, "Let Us (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) make man in Our image, according to Our likeness [not physical, but a spiritual personality and moral likeness]; and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the cattle, and over the entire earth, and over everything that creeps and crawls on the earth." [Ps 104:30; Heb 1:2; 11:3]
27So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them. [Col 3:9, 10; James 3:8, 9]
28And God blessed them [granting them certain authority] and said to them, "Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth, and subjugate it [putting it under your power]; and rule over (dominate) the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and every living thing that moves upon the earth."
29So God said, "Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of the entire earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you;
30and to all the animals on the earth and to every bird of the air and to everything that moves on the ground—to everything in which there is the breath of life—I have given every green plant for food"; and it was so [because He commanded it].
31God saw everything that He had made, and behold, it was very good and He validated it completely. And there was evening and there was morning, a sixth day.
2 SO THE heavens and the earth were completed, and all their hosts (inhabitants).
2And by the seventh day God completed His work which He had done, and He rested (ceased) on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. [Heb 4:9, 10]
3So God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it [as His own, that is, set it apart as holy from other days], because in it He rested from all His work which He had created and done. [Ex 20:11]
4This is the history of [the origin of] the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day [that is, days of creation] that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens—
5no shrub or plant of the field was yet in the earth, and no herb of the field had yet sprouted, for the LORD God had not caused it to rain on the earth, and there was no man to cultivate the ground,
6but a mist (fog, dew, vapor) used to rise from the land and water the entire surface of the ground—
7then the LORD God formed [that is, created the body of] man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being [an individual complete in body and spirit]. [1 Cor 15:45–49]
8And the LORD God planted a garden (oasis) in the east, in Eden (delight, land of happiness); and He put the man whom He had formed (created) there.
9And [in that garden] the LORD God caused to grow from the ground every tree that is desirable and pleasing to the sight and good (suitable, pleasant) for food; the tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the [experiential] knowledge (recognition) of [the difference between] good and evil. [Rev 2:7; 22:14, 19]
10Now a river flowed out of Eden to water the garden; and from there it divided and became four [branching] rivers.
