If I do my best, will God do the rest?

I grew up hearing this popular saying "Do your best and God will do the rest."

That sounds good, maybe even spiritual. And yes, God is pleased with our faith when we do our best.

But some people can take that statement in the wrong context. They'll do what they can, but won't look hard enough to bring out the best in themselves.

Instead, some people believe the opposite: "Do your rest, and God will do the best." 

You'll see them always resting, passively waiting, living on auto-pilot mode, believing everything will just fall into its place when all they did was try a little.

Saying the right words is easy, but real faith will manifest in your action.

Do your best. Your real best. And yes, if your pursuit is aligned to His will for you, God will do the rest.
