Matthew:11:28-30 Come to me, all you who are troubled and weighted down with care, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke on you and become like me, for I am gentle and without pride, and you will have rest for your souls;  For my yoke is good, and the weight I take up is not hard.
See All...; Isaiah:40:31But those who are waiting for the Lord will have new strength; they will get wings like eagles: running, they will not be tired, and walking, they will have no weariness. See All...; Psalm:37:7Take your rest in the Lord, waiting quietly for him; do not be angry because of the man who does well in his evil ways, and gives effect to his bad designs. See All...; James:5:8Be as calm in your waiting; let your hearts be strong: because the coming of the Lord is near. See All...; Isaiah:40:1-31 Give comfort, give comfort, to my people, says your God.  Say kind words to the heart of Jerusalem, crying out to her that her time of trouble is ended, that her punishment is complete; that she has been rewarded by the Lord's hand twice over for all her sins.  A voice of one crying, Make ready in the waste land the way of the Lord, make level in the lowland a highway for our God.  Let every valley be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low, and let the rough places become level, and the hilltops become a valley,  And the glory of the Lord will be made clear, and all flesh will see it together, for the mouth of the Lord has said it.  A voice of one saying, Give a cry! And I said, What is my cry to be? All flesh is grass, and all its strength like the flower of the field.  The grass becomes dry, the flower is dead; because the breath of the Lord goes over it: truly the people is grass.  The grass is dry, the flower is dead; but the word of our God is eternal.  You who give good news to Zion, get up into the high mountain; you who give good news to Jerusalem, let your voice be strong; let it be sounding without fear; say to the towns of Judah, See, your God!  See, the Lord God will come as a strong one, ruling in power: see, those made free by him are with him, and those whom he has made safe go before him.  He will give food to his flock like a keeper of sheep; with his arm he will get it together, and will take up the lambs on his breast, gently guiding those which are with young.  In the hollow of whose hand have the waters been measured? and who is able to take the heavens in his stretched-out fingers? who has got together the dust of the earth in a measure? who has taken the weight of the mountains, or put the hills into the scales?  By whom has the spirit of the Lord been guided, or who has been his teacher?  Who gave him suggestions, and made clear to him the right way? who gave him knowledge, guiding him in the way of wisdom?  See, the nations are to him like a drop hanging from a bucket, and like the small dust in the scales: he takes up the islands like small dust.  And Lebanon is not enough to make a fire with, or all its cattle enough for a burned offering.  All the nations are as nothing before him; even less than nothing, a thing of no value.  Whom then is God like, in your opinion? or what will you put forward as a comparison with him?  The workman makes an image, and the gold-worker puts gold plates over it, and makes silver bands for it.  The wise workman makes selection of the mulberry-tree of the offering, a wood which will not become soft; so that the image may be fixed to it and not be moved.  Have you no knowledge of it? has it not come to your ears? has not news of it been given to you from the first? has it not been clear to you from the time when the earth was placed on its base?  It is he who is seated over the arch of the earth, and the people in it are as small as locusts; by him the heavens are stretched out like an arch, and made ready like a tent for a living-place.  He makes rulers come to nothing; the judges of the earth are of no value.  They have only now been planted, and their seed put into the earth, and they have only now taken root, when he sends out his breath over them and they become dry, and the storm-wind takes them away like dry grass.  Who then seems to you to be my equal? says the Holy One.  Let your eyes be lifted up on high, and see: who has made these? He who sends out their numbered army: who has knowledge of all their names: by whose great strength, because he is strong in power, all of them are in their places.  Why do you say, O Jacob, such words as these, O Israel, The Lord's eyes are not on my way, and my God gives no attention to my cause?  Have you no knowledge of it? has it not come to your ears? The eternal God, the Lord, the Maker of the ends of the earth, is never feeble or tired; there is no searching out of his wisdom.  He gives power to the feeble, increasing the strength of him who has no force.  Even the young men will become feeble and tired, and the best of them will come to the end of his strength;  But those who are waiting for the Lord will have new strength; they will get wings like eagles: running, they will not be tired, and walking, they will have no weariness.
See All...; 1 Corinthians:14:33For God is not a God whose ways are without order, but a God of peace; as in all the churches of the saints. See All...; Jeremiah:29:11For I am conscious of my thoughts about you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you hope at the end. See All...; Isaiah:45:7I am the giver of light and the maker of the dark; causing blessing, and sending troubles; I am the Lord, who does all these things. See All...; Proverbs:1:1-33 The wise sayings of Solomon, the son of David, king of Israel.  To have knowledge of wise teaching; to be clear about the words of reason:  To be trained in the ways of wisdom, in righteousness and judging truly and straight behaviour:  To make the simple-minded sharp, and to give the young man knowledge, and serious purpose:  (The wise man, hearing, will get greater learning, and the acts of the man of good sense will be wisely guided:)  To get the sense of wise sayings and secrets, and of the words of the wise and their dark sayings.  The fear of the Lord is the start of knowledge: but the foolish have no use for wisdom and teaching.  My son, give ear to the training of your father, and do not give up the teaching of your mother:  For they will be a crown of grace for your head, and chain-ornaments about your neck.  My son, if sinners would take you out of the right way, do not go with them.  If they say, Come with us; let us make designs against the good, waiting secretly for the upright, without cause;  Let us overcome them living, like the underworld, and in their strength, as those who go down to death;  Goods of great price will be ours, our houses will be full of wealth;  Take your chance with us, and we will all have one money-bag:  My son, do not go with them; keep your feet from their ways:  For their feet are running after evil, and they are quick to take a man's life.  Truly, to no purpose is the net stretched out before the eyes of the bird:  And they are secretly waiting for their blood and making ready destruction for themselves.  Such is the fate of everyone who goes in search of profit; it takes away the life of its owners.  Wisdom is crying out in the street; her voice is loud in the open places;  Her words are sounding in the meeting-places, and in the doorways of the town:  How long, you simple ones, will foolish things be dear to you? and pride a delight to the haters of authority? how long will the foolish go on hating knowledge?  Be turned again by my sharp words: see, I will send the flow of my spirit on you, and make my words clear to you.  Because your ears were shut to my voice; no one gave attention to my out-stretched hand;  You were not controlled by my guiding, and would have nothing to do with my sharp words:  So in the day of your trouble I will be laughing; I will make sport of your fear;  When your fear comes on you like a storm, and your trouble like a rushing wind; when pain and sorrow come on you.  Then I will give no answer to their cries; searching for me early, they will not see me:  For they were haters of knowledge, and did not give their hearts to the fear of the Lord:  They had no desire for my teaching, and my words of protest were as nothing to them.  So the fruit of their way will be their food, and with the designs of their hearts they will be made full.  For the turning back of the simple from teaching will be the cause of their death, and the peace of the foolish will be their destruction.  But whoever gives ear to me will take his rest safely, living in peace without fear of evil.
See All...; Isaiah:40:28-31 Have you no knowledge of it? has it not come to your ears? The eternal God, the Lord, the Maker of the ends of the earth, is never feeble or tired; there is no searching out of his wisdom.  He gives power to the feeble, increasing the strength of him who has no force.  Even the young men will become feeble and tired, and the best of them will come to the end of his strength;  But those who are waiting for the Lord will have new strength; they will get wings like eagles: running, they will not be tired, and walking, they will have no weariness.
See All...; John:3:16For God had such love for the world that he gave his only Son, so that whoever has faith in him may not come to destruction but have eternal life. See All...; Matthew:11:1-30 And it came about that when Jesus had come to the end of giving these orders to his twelve disciples, he went away from there, teaching and preaching in their towns.  Now when John had news in prison of the works of the Christ, he sent his disciples  To say to him, Are you he who is to come, or are we waiting for another?  And Jesus, answering, said to them, Go and give news to John of the things which you are seeing and hearing:  The blind see; those who were not able to, are walking; lepers are made clean; those who were without hearing, now have their ears open; the dead come to life again, and the poor have the good news given to them.  And a blessing will be on him who has no doubts about me.  And when they were going away, Jesus, talking of John, said to all the people, What went you out into the waste land to see? a tall stem moving in the wind?  But what went you out to see? a man delicately clothed? Those who have fair robes are in kings' houses.  But why did you go out? to see a prophet? Yes, I say to you, and more than a prophet.  This is he of whom it has been said, See, I send my servant before your face, who will make ready your way before you.  Truly I say to you, Among the sons of women there has not been a greater than John the Baptist: but he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.  And from the days of John the Baptist till now, the kingdom of heaven is forcing its way in, and men of force take it.  For all the prophets and the law were in force till John.  And if you are able to see it, this is Elijah who was to come.  He who has ears, let him give ear.  But what comparison may I make of this generation? It is like children seated in the market-places, crying out to one another,  We made music for you and you did not take part in the dance; we gave cries of sorrow and you made no signs of grief.  For John came, taking no food or drink, and they say, He has an evil spirit.  The Son of man has come feasting, and they say, See, a lover of food and wine, a friend of tax-farmers and sinners! And wisdom is judged to be right by her works.  Then he went on to say hard things to the towns where most of his works of power were done, because they had not been turned from their sins.  Unhappy are you, Chorazin! Unhappy are you, Beth-saida! For if the works of power which were done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have been turned from their sins in days gone by, clothing themselves in haircloth and putting dust on their heads.  But I say to you, It will be better for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judging, than for you.  And you, Capernaum, were you not to be lifted up to heaven? you will go down into hell: for if the works of power which were done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have been here to this day.  But I say to you that it will be better for the land of Sodom in the day of judging, than for you.  At that time Jesus made answer and said, I give praise to you, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have kept these things secret from the wise and the men of learning, and have made them clear to little children.  Yes, Father, for so it was pleasing in your eyes.  All things have been given to me by my Father; and no one has knowledge of the Son, but the Father; and no one has knowledge of the Father, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will make it clear.  Come to me, all you who are troubled and weighted down with care, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke on you and become like me, for I am gentle and without pride, and you will have rest for your souls;  For my yoke is good, and the weight I take up is not hard.
See All...; Psalm:61:1-4 Let my cry come to you, O God; let your ears be open to my prayer.  From the end of the earth will I send up my cry to you, when my heart is overcome: take me to the rock which is over-high for me.  For you have been my secret place, and my high tower from those who made war on me.  I will make your tent my resting-place for ever: I will keep myself under the cover of your wings. (Selah.)
See All...; Galatians:6:9-10 And let us not get tired of well-doing; for at the right time we will get in the grain, if we do not give way to weariness.  So then, as we have the chance, let us do good to all men, and specially to those who are of the family of the faith.
