Home » IF….


If can mean many things but here I like to share it as a positive or negative statement or a conditional clause.  Meaning that “if” I was to do something a positive or negative result may or may not happen.  As you read below, you will catch my drift – enjoy!

New King James

  • John 14.14 – If you ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
  • John 14.15 – If you love Me, keep My commandments.
  • John 15.6 – If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.
  • John 15.7 – If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
  • Romans 8.11 – If the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
  • Romans 8.13 – If you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
  • Romans 10.9 – If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
  • Romans 12.18 – If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.
  • Romans 12.20 – If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.
  • Romans 14.8 – If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord.  Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s.
  • 1 Corinthians 15.12 – If Christ is preached that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?
  • 1 Corinthians 15.13 – If there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ has not risen.
  • 1 Corinthians 15.14 – If Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty.
  • 1 Corinthians 15.32 – If the dead do not rise, “Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die!”
  • James 1.5 – If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
  • 1 John 1.7 – If we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.

Tony Dungy – The Mentor Leader

  • If you start making excuses to cut the things that are important because of urgent circumstances, it will become a habit, and you’ll start cutting them out regularly.
  • If it took a lifetime for you to get this way, it may take a little time to understand and reverse the negative effects.
  • If we  ourselves are not empowered–if we don’t believe in ourselves–it won’t be long before we run out of make-believe energy as we try to empower and equip others to become the best they can be.
  • If you carry emotional baggage, the only person it bothers, affects and holds back is you.
  • If God wants us to retool, redevelop, or redirect our efforts, He will guide us in those new directions.  If we have trouble hearing Him, He will faithfully work in out lives until we are pointed in the direction He wants us to go.
  • If we occasionally have to adjust our leadership style in light of temporary circumstances, our long-term focus should still be on building into the members of our organization so that in all situations they learn how to respond properly.
  • If you want to make a difference in the lives of the people you lead, you must be willing to walk alongside them, to lift and encourage them, to share moments of understanding with them, and to spend time with them, not just shout down at them from on high.

Stormie Omartian – Lead Me, Holy Spirit

  • If you are to find God’s  will for your future, then you must listen closely for the Spirit’s leading as you walk with Him moment by moment today.
  • If the devil can tell you to do something wrong, God can certainly tell you to do something right.
  • If you sin and continue sinning, it doesn’t mean the Holy Spirit is not in your life.  It means you have not totally surrendered to Him, and you ave not listened for His voice leading you every day.
  • If the Lord is working in you until the day you go to be with Him, then it seems holiness is a process of becoming more like Jesus every day.
  • If you are one who believes you don’t have any special gifts, know that God often works most powerfully through a person who depends totally on Him for the manifestation of any gifts He has given him or her.
  • If you are married, preserving that marriage is the biggest part of your ministry and calling.
  • If the dream you have in your heart does not in any way match the call God has on your life, surrender your dream to the Lord.  If it is not of Him, He will take it away and replace it with His.
  • If you are letting God lead you by the power of His Holy Spirit, you will see Him bless what you do.
  • If He leads you to do something you don’t want to do or believe you cannot do, ask Him to work a change of heart in you.  He is not going to ask you to do something that is not ultimately His best for your life.
  • If you feel like you are not bearing fruit in your work or ministry, ask the Lord to show you any place where you have not obeyed Him.
  • If you are not led by the Holy Spirit in the work you do, you will not bear the good fruit God wants you to produce.
  • If you are not empowered by the Holy Spirit, you are not producing fruit for eternity the way God desires.
  • If He has time to number the hairs on your head and never leave you or forsake you, then He has time to lead you in all things.
  • If we are not praying, we are not in His perfect will.
  • If you are praying for your country, you are being led by the Holy Spirit.
  • If Jesus did not do miracles when there was doubt and unbelief in the people around Him, how can we expect to see answers to our prayers if we pray around those who have no faith?
  • If you have prayed and prayed and have not been healed, it could be that God is using you, too, to be an encouragement to others to not give up.
