Isaiah 40: 25-31

40:25“And to whom would you compare me or equate me?” says the Holy One.
40:26Lift up your eyes on high, and see who has created these things. He leads forth their army by number, and he calls them all by name. Because of the fullness of his strength and robustness and virtue, not one of them was left behind.
40:27Why do you say this, O Jacob, and why do you speak this way, O Israel? “My way has been hidden from the Lord, and my judgment escaped notice by my God.”
40:28Do you not know, or have you not heard? The Lord is the eternal God, who has created the limits of the earth. He does not diminish, and he does not struggle. Neither is his wisdom searchable.
40:29It is he who gives strength to the weary, and it is he who increases fortitude and strength in those who are failing.
40:30Servants will struggle and fail, and young men will fall into infirmity.
40:31But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will take up wings like eagles. They will run and not struggle. They will walk and not tire.

Matthew 11: 28- 30

11:28Come to me, all you who labor and have been burdened, and I will refresh you.
11:29Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you shall find rest for your souls.
11:30For my yoke is sweet and my burden is light.”
