But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises.
—Hebrews 8:6 (NKJV)
Praise you, Jesus, that I am a new person in you (2 Corinthians 5:17)! I’m born again and have a better covenant with better promises because you became a curse for my sins (Galatians 3:13). Father, I can come into your presence without hesitation knowing you have filled me with your abundant life (Hebrews 4:16). The enemy tries to steal, kill, and destroy me, but he can’t touch me (John 10:10). You have equipped me with weapons to fight him (2 Corinthians 10:4). I thank you, Lord, that I can worship you in spirit and in truth (John 4:23). I praise you for your promises so I can walk in your peace. I praise you, Jesus, for interceding for me (John 17:20-25). Praise you, Father, that your grace is sufficient for me (2 Corinthians 12:9), and I’m more than a conqueror (Romans 8:37). Praise you, God, for healing me (1 Peter 2:24). Each sickness is an opportunity to bring glory to you. Sickness is violence against your kingdom, Lord, and I take what is mine—what you gave your precious life for me to have (Matthew 11:12). I refuse the enemy’s lies or his attempts to defeat my belief that I am healed in you. I’m not going to let the enemy steal my inheritance in you or try to steal the health that you wish above all things to prosper in me (3 John 2).
By the grace of God, I say no to sin and no to sickness and no to bondage and no to any weapon that attempts to come against me. I submit to your eternal love for me—to your provision and grace! I resist the enemy and sickness and fear and worry and lies. You have given me faith to overcome whatever comes against me (1 John 5:4). And your grace is absolutely all I need. I stand, believing in the authority you have given me (John 14:12-14). The power of life and death is in the tongue (Proverbs 18:21). I speak abundant life in Jesus and death to the lies of the enemy (John 10:10). You sent your Word and healed me, Lord (Psalm 107:20). You healed me of all my sins and all my sicknesses (Psalm 103:2-3). Your Word brings life to my bones and healing to my flesh (Proverbs 4:22). By your wounds, Jesus, I am forgiven. I am healed. I am whole. I am free (Isaiah 53:4-6; 1 Peter 2:24). Your Word accomplishes all you send it to do (Isaiah 55:11). It breathes and lives! And your Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth (John 1:14)!
Praise you, Jesus, for mediating a better covenant with your life (Hebrews 8:6). Because of you, I have mercy. You no longer remember my sins or lawless deeds. Thank you for your New Covenant of grace. You have made the first covenant obsolete. Now what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away (Hebrews 8:12-13). I look only to you, the author and the finisher of my faith. I am confident that what you have begun in my life you will accomplish (Philippians 1:6). Whatever comes against me, your grace is my strength to overcome. No weapon that comes against me can prosper (Isaiah 54:17). Your power that raised Jesus from the dead lives inside of me (Ephesians 1:18-19). And yes, I am new! The old is totally gone, and I am free! Praise you, Lord, for a better covenant you have established on better promises! I can’t forgive or heal or earn anything. Only you can, and you have already won it all! Hallelujah!
