A fairly common teaching in the New Testament is that one gets what one deserves, that God will 'render to every man according to his deeds' (Romans 2:5-6).

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.   Galatians 6:7, King James Version

For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind: it hath no stalk; the bud shall yield no meal: if so be it yield, the strangers shall swallow it up.   Hosea 8:7, King James Version

This phrase is nearly synonymous with, 'you made your bed, now lie in it.'.
