Teacher and minister Mark Hankins has shared that you can’t rise above your confession…that is, if you confess that you’re down, discouraged, can’t win…then you won’t be able to rise above that, unless you change what you are saying. Often, as he reads healing confessions, for instance, he’ll say, “Our confession is…” (then, he goes on to confess (agree with) the Word of God and its truth by quoting a particular scripture).
I’m victorious in every matter through my Lord, Jesus Christ. There hasn’t been a problem in which the Lord’s faithfulness hasn’t sufficed.
Victory in Jesus, through His sacrificial blood and through His name…and through God’s precious promises, is that which I, as a believer, claim.
Just as those who mined for gold in California once “staked their claim,” I claim the “gold” of victory that is found through the Word, Jesus’ blood, and Jesus’ name!
P. A. Oltrogge

And the booklet, Our Covenant with God, by Kenneth Copeland, explains how Jesus became the sacrificial Lamb that established your covenant with God:
“Your covenant with God, sealed in the blood of His Son, is a powerful agreement that makes you joint heirs with Him. Not only does this covenant assure that He will be your God forever, but it provides, as His beloved child, a faithful and loving Father who will never leave you nor forsake you. Discover how, as a child of the Most High God, the power of sin has been broken, THE BLESSING is yours, and your victory is assured!”
