Overcomer’s Covenant

The Overcomer’s Covenant in Christ

I place all my trust and confidence in the Lord and I put no confidence in the flesh – I declare myself to be dependent upon God.  I know that I cannot save myself, nor set myself free by my own efforts and resources.  I know that apart from Christ I can do nothing.  I know that all temptation is an attempt to get me to live my life independently from God, but God has provided a way of escape.

I consciously and deliberately choose to submit to God and resist the devil by denying myself, picking up my cross daily and following Jesus.  I know that my soul was not designed by God to function as master.  I know that rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and insubordination is an iniquity and idolatry.

I choose to humble myself before the mighty hand of God that He may exalt me at the proper time.  I know that God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble.

I declare the truth that I am dead to sin, freed from it and alive to God in Christ Jesus, because I have died with Christ and was raised with Him.  I know that the law and all my best efforts are unable to impart life, and that Jesus came to give me life.

I gladly embrace the truth that I am now a child of God, who is unconditionally loved and accepted.  I reject the lie that I have to perform to be accepted, and I reject my fallen and natural identity which was derived from the world.  I know that it is not what I do that determines who I am, but who I am that determines what I do.

I declare that sin shall no longer be master over me because I am not under the law, but under grace; and there is no more guilt or condemnation because I am spiritually alive in Christ Jesus.  I am a servant of a new covenant, not of the letter, but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.

I renounce every unrighteous rise of my body, and I commit myself to no longer be conformed to this world, but rather to be transformed by the renewing of my mind.  I choose to believe the truth and walk in it, regardless of my feelings or circumstances.   I know that before I came to Christ my mind was programmed according to this world and I used my body as an instrument of unrighteousness thereby allowing sin to reign in my mortal body.

I commit myself to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.  I choose to think upon that which is true, honorable, right, pure and lovely.  I know that the Holy Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons.

I commit myself to God’s great goal for my life to conform to His image.  I know that I will face many trials, but God has given me the victory.  I am not a victim, but an overcomer in Christ.  The grace of God will enable me to triumph over every trial resulting in proven character.

I choose to adopt the attitude of Christ, which is to do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind I will regard others as more important than myself I will not merely look out for my own personal interests, but also the interest of others.  I know that it is more blessed to give then to receive.


This affirmation above is a grace response to The Finished Work of Christ.

  1. Hi Mike, I have read your articles and a few pages of your book. I have not been able to purchase your book because i have no money at the moment but i thank God i have your book. Recently i got an opportunity to write in a Recovery magazine. I have so far written to articles and I need to share with you and you will also share wisdom how to continue writing messages that will help many break free from addiction. Am a Uganda living in Uganda. If possible get me on my email: krysonuganda@gmail.com

    • Aaron, God does not take the Holy Spirit from you and you cannot lose your salvation. If i were possible then everyone would lose their salvation because all of us backslide and mess up from time to time. When
      Christ comes in He comes in to stay and as Rom. 8:28 tells us nothing, absolutely nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus, our Lord. A few verses earlier in Rom. 8, it tells us that we have not only been justified, but sanctified and glorified. It is a done deal. It is finished! The biggest and best truth that God wants us to know is Gal. 2:20, that we no longer live, but Christ lies in us.

  2. Mike, I am looking for a long term treatment program. Do you have any recommendations? I am 53years old and currently separated from my wife and 4 children. I am at wits end do to addictions.
