Mat. 17:18-20—“And Jesus rebuked him, & the demon came out of him, & the boy was cured at once. Then the disciples came to Jesus privately & said, “Why could we not cast it out?” And He said to them, “Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you shall say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ & it shall move; & nothing shall be impossible to you.”


Isa. 50:2—“Why was there no man when I came? When I called, why was there none to answer? Is My hand so short that it cannot ransom? Or have I no power to deliver? Behold, I dry up the sea with My rebuke, I make the rivers a wilderness; Their fish stink for lack of water, And die of thirst.”

Mat. 11:27-30—“All things have been handed over to Me by My Father; & no one knows the Son, except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father, except the Son, & anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him. “Come to Me, all who are weary & heavy-laden, & I will give you rest. “Take My yoke upon you, & learn from Me, for I am gentle & humble in heart; & YOU SHALL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS. “For My yoke is easy, & My load is light.”

In reevaluating self, our grasp on God had been skewed by sin.

Hebrews is all about wooing a people back to God by reminding thm of His goodness. Reevaluation


Ps. 34:8-9—“O taste & see that the LORD is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him! O fear the LORD, you His saints; For to those who fear Him, there is no want.”

Ps. 25:4—“Make me know Thy ways, O LORD; Teach me Thy paths.”

Ps. 123:2—“Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master, As the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress; So our eyes look to the LORD our God, Until He shall be gracious to us.”
