This Super Bowl reminded me in some ways of the story of David and Goliath. You have Russell Wilson at 5’ 11”, and only his second year in the NFL And on other side, you have Peyton Manning, 6’ 5”, voted recent MVP, and seasoned veteran with an existing super bowl ring, along with a huge following of supporters.

But wait just one minute, what just happened? We were all led to believe that with a number one MVP quarterback even a number one defense would find it difficult to win! But instead, the Seahawks were unstoppable.

How did that happen? If you look at the chain of events preceding this game, you will see how indeed this happened.

After watching several interviews with the Seahawks organization I found out the following:

First of all, on board is Dr. Payne, a Chaplin with this organization since 1994, where his primary role is serving as the Pastor of Leadership Development and discipleship Training. He has been instrumental in encouraging and keeping this Seahawks team grounded and active in faith, trusting God no matter whether they win, lose, or tie and aggressive as servant leaders and soldiers for our Lord Jesus Christ. (Believing)

Second, this team actively envisioned a championship from day one by creating a team video of already achieving their goal. (Expecting)

Third, all team members understood & practiced the important principle of putting God first, family second, and football last. (Receiving)

And finally, when a team or organization is founded on a strong foundation that believes, expects, and receives, all things are possible.

Even though I am a devoted Steeler fan, I must take this time to congratulate this organization, and this city for exercising their faith and for receiving their victory before the whole world to see!
