But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, by as much as He is also the mediator of a better covenant, which has been enacted on better promises.
The promises we have been given in the new covenant are based on what Christ has done for us, not what we have done. Realize that every promise we have in Christ is available to all, for God is no respecter of persons but a respecter of faith. One of the keys to faith is no longer seeing what we have in Christ as a promise, for that would put it off into the future. Faith takes what we have been given a promise of and sees it as a present day reality, for faith brings everything into the present tense. “Now” faith is. When you walk by faith you do not put what God has said is already yours off into the future. Faith calls those things which do not exist as though they did (Romans 4:17). Faith is of the heart, for man believes in his heart and confession is made unto what God has said. Feed on the Word of God until it becomes real to your inner man. Choose to walk by faith not by sight, seeing God’s promises as a present day reality by calling those things that do not exist as though they did, and receive the promises God has provided for you.
