If It Is To Be

I used to be in a direct sales company that used this little catch phrase a lot at motivational events.

“If it is to be, it is up to me.”

While I get the sentiment behind that expression that you do have to act upon decisions, dreams, goals, etc. or they won’t happen, this sentiment also goes completely against God’s kingdom. We have bought into the belief that we are in control.

I hate to break it to ya, but we aren’t.

In fact God wants us to rely only on Him. He says we must give up our life to gain it, we must be weak to be strong, we must die to live.

Let me always say, “If it is to be, it is up to Thee.”
