Ten Benefits of Favor – sermon outline



The following is a cool outline by my friend Leif Hetland on the benefits of God's favor on our lives. I hope you enjoy it.

by Leif Hetland (

1. Favor is greater than material wealth.

Proverbs 22:1 – "A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, Loving favor rather than silver and gold."

2. Favor is stronger than military power.

Psalm 5:12 – “For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; With favor You will surround him as with a shield.”

3. Favor releases from bondage.

Psalm 85:1 – “Lord, You have been favorable to Your land; You have brought back the captivity of Jacob.”

4. Spiritual wisdom leads to favor.

Proverbs 14:35 – “The king’s favor is toward a wise servant, But his wrath is against him who causes shame.”

5. Doing what is right brings favor.

1 Peter 2:20 – “For what credit is it if, when you are beaten for your faults, you take it patiently? But when you do good and suffer, if you take it patiently, this is commendable before God.”

6. Favor breaks the power of shame and disgrace.

Luke 1:28-30 – “And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!” But when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was. Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.”

Luke 1:24-25 – “After this his wife Elizabeth became pregnant and for five months remained in seclusion. “The Lord has done this for me,” she said. “In these days he has shown his favor and taken away my disgrace among the people.”

7. Favor brings supernatural increase and promotion.

Genesis 39:21 – “But, the Lord was with Joseph and showed him mercy, and He gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.”

8. Favor will give honor in the midst of adversaries.

Exodus 11:3 – “And the Lord gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh’s servants and in the sight of the people.”

9. Favor brings prominence and preferential treatment.

Esther 2:17 – “The king loved Esther more than all the other women, and she obtained grace and favor in his sight more than all the virgins; so he set the royal crown upon her head and made her queen instead of Vashti.”

10. Favor brings recognition even when you seem the least likely to receive it.

1 Samuel 16:22 – “Then Saul sent to Jesse, saying, “Please let David stand before me, for he has found favor in my sight.”
