Psalms 46:10

10 Be still and knowe that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, and I wil be exalted in the earth.

Isaiah 40:28-31

28 Knowest thou not? or hast thou not heard, that the euerlasting God, the Lord hath created the endes of the earth? he neither fainteth, nor is wearie: there is no searching of his vnderstanding. 29 But he giueth strength vnto him that fainteth, and vnto him that hath no strength, he encreaseth power. 30 Euen the yong men shall faint, and be wearie, and the yong men shall stumble and fall. 31 But they that waite vpon the Lord, shall renue their strength: they shall lift vp the wings as the eagles: they shall runne, and not be wearie, and they shall walke and not faint.

Hebrews 4:1-11

1 Let vs feare therefore, least at any time by forsaking the promise of entring into his rest, any of you should seeme to be depriued. 2 For vnto vs was the Gospel preached as also vnto them: but the worde that they heard, profited not them, because it was not mixed with faith in those that heard it. 3 For we which haue beleeued, doe enter into rest, as he said to the other, As I haue sworne in my wrath, If they shall enter into my rest: although the workes were finished from the foundation of the world. 4 For he spake in a certaine place of the seuenth day on this wise, And God did rest the seuenth day from all his workes. 5 And in this place againe, If they shall enter into my rest. 6 Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter thereinto, and they to whom it was first preached, entred not therein for vnbeliefes sake: 7 Againe he appointed in Dauid a certaine day, by To day, after so long a time, saying, as it is sayd, This day, if ye heare his voyce, harden not your hearts. 8 For if Iesus had giuen them rest, then would he not after this haue spoke of an other day. 9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. 10 For he that is entred into his rest, hath also ceased from his owne works, as God did from his. 11 Let vs studie therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same ensample of disobedience.
