There are great benefits when you operate under God�s favour, some of them are
listed below.
1. Divine protection. Joseph and David were divinely protected because God favour
them. Ps 5;12

3. Full of life. Ps 30;5

8;5. Esther found favour with the king and the degree to destroy the Jews was

8. wins unfought battles- Ps 44;1-3

Have you ever felt like a failure in life, or felt as if you�ve lost the grip on
the important things in your life? Have you ever experienced insecurities in your
life? Have you ever felt unloved and worthless? Have you ever thought you are
unattractive or can�t do things other people can do? Do you feel you don�t have
what it takes or not good enough? Do think nothing good ever happens in your life
or for every good thing that happens a bad one follows. Do you feel like a failure?
If you are being plagued by any of these thoughts this write up is for you and I
have good news for you and I know what you need. You need divine favour. You need
preferential treatment and you need advantage. Life without divine favour will
result in a person working like an elephant and eating like an ant. Today your
story will change. You need favour to gain access to opportunities and for success.
One day of favour is worth more than a lifetime of labour. The following are the
fruit of favour: _

declares that we have been made the righteousness of God in Christ. So you have the
favour of God. You have to unlock it and enjoy it. Tomorrow, I will show you how to

Benefits of walking in Divine Favour


We, as God�s people, have the beautiful opportunity to walk in favour everyday of
our lives: to see people go out of their way to bless us, to open doors for us, and
yet, they do not know why. They know there�s something different about you, but
they don�t know what.
Many, many times, favour has changed entirely hopeless situations into just the
opposite.
Favour will bind broken hearts, mend troubled relationships, cause loved ones to
open their minds and hearts to hear about Jesus. Favour grants promotions, gives
raise, avoids lay-offs, pleases customers, works with the saved as well as the
unsaved. Favour brings smiles to the faces of those who go out of their way to do
nice things for you.
1. When FAVOUR is upon us, the works of our hands are confirmed! Psalm 90:17.
2. Favour will make a highflier of any dummy any day, anytime and anywhere.
Ecclesiastes 9:11, Zechariah 4:6. It is not ability that brings FAVOUR!
3. Favour produces supernatural increase and promotion. Genesis 39:21.
4. Favour produces restoration of everything the enemy has stolen from you.
5. Favour produces honor in the midst of your adversaries. Exodus 11:3.
6. Favour produces increased assets in the material realm especially in the area
of real estate. Deut 33:23, �And of Naphtali he said, O Naphtali, satisfied with
favour, and full with the blessing of the LORD: possess thou the west and the
south.� Psa 44:3
7. Favour produces the greatest victories you�ve ever known in the midst of
impossible odds. Joshua 11:20.
8. Favour produces recognition even when you seem to be the least likely to
receive it. 1 Samuel 16:22.
9. Favour produces prominence and preferential treatment. Esther 2:17.
10. Favour produces petitions granted even by ungodly civil authorities. Esther
5:2, 8.
11. Favour causes policies, rules, regulations, laws to be changed and reversed
to your advantage. Esther 8:5.
12. Favour produces battles won which you won�t even have to fight because God
will fight them for you. Psalm 44:3.
13. Favour protects you. Favour serves as a shield! Psalm 5:12 ��Thou dost
surround him with favour as with a shield.� It will keep you safe and shielded from
the effects of evil. Even when bad things happen to you, God will use them for your
good and His glory. Look at the life of Joseph.
14. Favour pacifies your enemies. It will even cause your opponents to be at
peace with you.
15. Favour places the wealth of the wicked at your disposal. It will transfer
the resources of evil or unsaved people to your stewardship or ownership. Exo
12:36, And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians, so that
they lent unto them such things as they required. And they spoiled the Egyptians.
16. God�s favour is so powerful. It can turn a slave into an heir. Joseph, a
slave boy became like the first son of Portiphar until he was wrongly imprisoned.
