There is a saying that has been popularized through media, but which is unscriptural.
That saying is que sera, sera … what will be, will be.
However, in the Bible there are a lot of if … then clauses.
If you read the book of Jonah which is only four chapters long, there was an if … then proposition from God to Ninevah. If Ninevah did not change, then it would be overthrown.
There are a lot of cause and effect, if … then scriptures in the New Testament.
Matthew 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
The results are not “que sera sera“, but depend upon individual fulfillment of the “if” part of an if … then proposition. There is a necessity to build a life in obedience to the Word of God.
Matthew 7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
