Exodus 8:1-32; Psalms 38:1-39:13; Acts 3:1-26

My grace is sufficient for you. 2 Corinthians 12:9, NKJV

Haman had just been invited to a second banquet with Queen Esther and King Xerxes. Arriving at home, he called together his wife and friends and boasted of his vast wealth, his many sons, and the many honours the King had showered on him. Then comes this telling statement: “But all this gives me no satisfaction as long as…” (Est. 5:13, NIV). How do I complete that sentence? If I had nothing more than the grace that saved me, would I be content? In fact, I have been blessed abundantly—salvation and then blessing upon blessing. My satisfaction will come only as I look to the Lord Jesus alone with gratitude for His sufficient grace. —M. MacMullen

For all Your goodness I will keep on singing,
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find. —M. Redman & J. Myrin
