Summary

Publishers Weekly best seller

This audiobook edition features exclusive content including a recording of Louie’s sermon that inspired this book; an interview with Jay and Katherine Wolf, the authors of Hope Heals and Suffer Strong; and off-script commentary from Louie that expands on his message. 

Discover how to break free from the chains of negative thinking and experience true freedom from unhealthy thoughts and emotions. 

The Enemy is constantly seeking to fill your mind with destructive and harmful thoughts - whether of fear, worry, insecurity, anxiety, temptation, envy.... It’s all too easy for Satan to manipulate his way into a seat at the table intended for only you and Jesus, and to try making himself at home in your mind. It’s an ongoing battle, but one you can win! 

In Don’t Give the Enemy a Seat at Your Table, best-selling author and pastor Louie Giglio shares practical ways to overcome the Enemy’s lies and instead find peace and security in any challenging circumstance or situation. By drawing from Psalm 23 as a framework, he offers biblical insight on how to:

  • Cancel the lies that will wreck your life.
  • Take empowering steps to live fully alive in Christ.
  • Stop the spiral of shame, temptation, and insecurity.
  • Restore peace and rest in your life.
  • Embrace the true purpose behind your journey through challenging circumstances.
  • Break free from the endless cycle of destructive thinking.

You can find freedom from the war inside your mind - if you allow Jesus, the Good Shepherd, to lead the battle. Learn how to find encouragement, hope, and strength no matter what valleys you face. It’s time to reject the lies and listen to the truth.

Critic reviews

"Louie Giglio is a prophetic gift for our time. And Psalm 23 is a resounding truth for all time. Put them together and you have a clarion call to attune our mindstream to life in the kingdom. As someone who starts every morning by praying Psalm 23, this book struck a deep chord in my heart." (John Mark Comer, pastor of vision and teaching at Bridgetown Church; author of The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry)

"Louie's new book, Don't Give the Enemy a Seat at Your Table, is for anyone who's been letting the enemy occupy space in their mind. Whether it's anger, loneliness, insecurity, or shame, it's time to kick the enemy out of your mind and take back your seat at the table." (Steven Furtick, pastor of Elevation Church and New York Times best-selling author)

"If you are wrestling with discouraging thoughts, pastor Louie Giglio's book, Don't Give the Enemy a Seat at Your Table, will help you discover the biblical truths that will help free your mind so you can live the life God intended you to live." (Craig Groeschel, pastor of Life Church and New York Times best-selling author)

One to listen to again

So much great teaching in this book that I will probably have to listen to it again a bunch of times so I can take it all in. But even on the first listen I'm challenged and encouraged to refocus on Jesus and on the amazing truths of Psalm 23.

Don’t Give the Enemy a Seat at Your Table Review

I really loved the way Louie Giglio presented and authored this book… It really shed a new light and perspective on Psalm 23 for me that was very challenging and thought provoking… There has been many times I have allowed the Enemy, whether it was the Devil, other people or just myself (thoughts) to have a negative place in my world where they did not belong… My mind has been renewed and now I am more aware of negativity that is in and around me.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who needs to know whom the enemy is and how to effectively fight war against him… Enjoy the spread that is prepared and set specifically before you by the Good Shepherd! You won’t regret it!

Guide Your Thoughts, Find Yippee Peace

This book is an amazing audio book. The Author/ Narrator conveys the importance of focusing our thoughts on scripture and Jesus. Without such guidance we might live inside our head, fall prey to fear, and become hopeless. That's not God's plan for us.

Needed it

Lobed the audible version so much that I bought the hard copy just so I can go back through it a second time and highlight my favorite notes. Love the bonus content as well!

Crucial Listen

This book is far more than just a book about resisting sin & temptation. Louie Giglio lays out a Biblically sound, insightfully illustrated, and fully applicable understanding of Psalm 23 as applied to modern day life.
I believe this is a must “listen to“ book for every believer. Victor is available, but we have to understand the battle.

Epic and inspiring. Classic for the ages.

Beautiful message for conquering negative thoughts and messages of the enemy in one’s life. Louie applies how God has worked in the ups and downs of his own life, work and relationships and gave him the grace of an epiphany to transform him and become more Christ like. Preaches in a way to engage your imagination, practically apply it to your life and to reach your heart with God’s loving presence. He has a mature theology of making our sufferings redemptive as well. Good formation on how to keep boundaries in the areas that matter most and live a more grace filled life. He gives a powerful meditation breaking open Psalm 23 to allow the Good Shepherd to renovate our hearts so that we are able to hear and be lead by the Lord and not the voices of the enemy. He gives practical advice on sustaining hope and faith as we all wrestle with the hard parts, griefs, failures and storms of life. Most powerful and transforming commentary on Psalm 23 I’ve ever heard. Makes one a better disciple in their life, roles and journey of faith. This is one of the best books I’ve read / listened to on audible. I highly recommend it. Plus audible version adds an interview on how to suffer strong and a moving sermon on his primary thesis at the end. Life transforming.

Needed this mind reset!

This powerful message revolves around 9 words. This powerhouse of a message was a critical mind reset for me. In a time such as this with so many voices the enemy took advantage I became distracted, ineffective and paralyzed in my family, with my friends and in my job. These 9 words reset my entire being to hear the voice of the one who had set and invited me to the table. Game changer of a book and message!
