If what we think determines who we are, then why are so many of us insecure, depressed, and confused? This is not the condition God has in mind for us. In fact, the Master’s overwhelming desire is to see us full of hope, strength, peace, joy, and love. So where do we go wrong? What is the disconnect? How do we bridge the gap and overcome all the negativity we encounter?
As Pastor Lance Hahn explains, when we lose our identity, we become unanchored, tossed about on the sea of a million random influences. Between the world, the flesh, and the devil, we don’t know what to think, and therefore our lives are filled with hurt, pain, and regret. Someone is running the show in our minds and it’s not us—at least not the real us, nor the real owner. This should come as a relief.
The Master’s Mind will show you just how much God wants to strengthen your mind and enable you to rise above the noise that seeks to overwhelm each one of us. Pastor Lance knows first-hand the power that comes from a mind at rest, trusting God’s goodness despite the voices in our head. Jesus died to set us free. He made a way for our souls to be rescued from our enemies. It’s time for us to take back control of our minds, to master them and bring them back in alignment with the Master’s will. It’s time to return to the Master’s mind.
I’ll be honest – I wanted to read this book because of the 1-star review I read about it. I wanted to see if the book was really as terrible as the reviewer said.
My impression: it’s been a long time since I’ve read a book that I couldn’t wait to share with others. While there were places where I don’t 100% agree with Hahn (when do we ever really agree with anyone 100%?), I love how deeply he rooted this book in scripture. This isn’t just one author telling you what he thinks about a subject – he offers scripture after scripture to support his understanding and interpretation.
I have a hard time reviewing books like this without going into my theology and beliefs, but I will say this – if you consider yourself a Christian (believing in the trinity and accepting Jesus Christ as the son of God and savior of the world), and you struggle with anxiety, fear, anger, or any other emotion that prevents you from walking in God’s peace, read this book. I can’t make promises, but I think it would be hard to walk away from this book without one of God’s truths making an impact on your life. It might frustrate you, but in a good way as you learn more about how to walk in God’s peace.
If you don’t believe in the trinity or accept Christ as the son of God and savior of the world, this book will probably just annoy you and waste your time.
Overall, I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
