My team lost.
Before the overtime started we turned the TV off and went to bed.
Waking up Tuesday morning I checked my phone and there it was.
The Patriots had made an historic comeback.
Of course they did! My teams always seem to be the underdog.
In my heart he spoke these words,
“The Patriots comeback is a confirmation of the comeback for America I began on November 8th, 2016.”
My entire mindset changed.
Thanking God for his goodness and mercy, the Super Bowl took on a whole new meaning. It wasn’t about a game, or a halftime show or who won or lost.
It was about God showing up in one of the most watched TV programs of the year and making a statement about Himself.
It was about how for some reason God likes football???????
It was about how God can use any format to deliver his messages.
But mostly He was telling me to be hopeful about America. He was letting me know He has plans for this country that are for good and not evil, for a future and a hope. (Jeremiah 29:11) He heard and listened to our prayers; from those of us who for years have been on our knees crying out for forgiveness to heal our land.
(2 Chronicles 7:14)
No matter how bad it looks right now with all the protests, vandalism and criminal behavior, God is reforming our nation to be a leader for other nations for His kingdom. He is literally shaking the evil to root it out. The enemy will continue his battles but once again, he has been dealt a huge blow.
That “Trumps” any game loss any day, even the Super Bowl.
