So, much of the country was glued to the set last week, watching a phenomenal game play ot-main-adout. I think the Patriots were favored, but I also think most of us were rooting for Atlanta. Americans love the Underdog. And, amazingly enough, they were in complete control. At least, until Half Time.

I don’t know what Coach Belicheck or Quarterback Tom Brady said to their fellow team mates at half time. Not sure what they did different. But the team I was rooting for got schooled in the second half. So much happened in that game, it’s positively amazing. It was the first Supper Bowl to ever go into overtime. And the Patriots broke the Super Bowl come-back record that was a 10 point difference and is now 25. This was not the team I was rooting for, but as I said on Facebook, “I concede, Brady is the best.” He is also the first Quarterback to win 5 Super Bowls. Congrats for certain.

I am often amazed by the feats of the human race. How an individual or a group will go thecbd-main-ad-2 extra mile. Not give in. Not listen to the nay-sayers. The Christian “plight” is kind of like that. It’s easy to count us out. It’s easy to expect us to fold under the pressure of those in power or the ones with the biggest mouth, but God doesn’t work like that. He’s there to pick us up and keep us going in the worst circumstances.

I think God is patient with America (and the rest of the world) because that is His nature. According to John, God is love. It is Who He is. It’s not that He is not aware, it’s that He doesn’t want any lost (2 Peter 3:9). It’s not His plan for us to go anywhere except Heaven. It never was! So He is patient with those who oppose Him and His people. We don’t wipe out the enemy, we withstand him. Even the Arch Angel Michael told the devil, “The Lord rebuke you!” (Jude 1:9)

I might have got a bit off track there. But it’s important for us to know that we have a mainlogo“hidden” strength in the Lord and that He is there for us when we have no idea where to turn or where to go. When we are down for the count and the end looks bleak. We have an advocate with the Father. We have a secret source of strength and power to come from behind and stun the world with abilities that are supernatural.

It’s a little hard to pull all of this together, but here is what I am trying to say: The work is not done. It may be the first half at the moment and we are being demolished, but the race is not run yet. I understand the hard seasons. I have lived a few. But God hasn’t forgot us and the game isn’t over.

I love to write. I write books, blogs, articles. Mostly about God and His amazing blessings. Sometimes about other things. But mostly about God. I have a fixation on comma. Please forgive me if you see too many of them.
