Alabama: came back from the dead in a comeback for the ages.
Alabama was almost down for the count. Auburn had Alabama on the ropes and yet the Crimson Tide found a way to come back from the dead. With the score 33 to 20, Alabama scored 35 points in the second half to run away with the 2014 Iron Bowl Title.
At one point, Alabama QB Blake Sims was dazed and dazzled and the Alabama fans were dumfounded and confounded. Sims threw 3 first half interceptions and it seemed as if he was going to throw the game away. Yet Sims and Alabama found their footing and they found a way to recover and regroup as they ran Auburn out of the gym on the way to an instant classic comeback win.
Alabama proved that they are indeed the No. 1 team in the land, as they overcame a 13 point deficit on the way to demonstrating dominance on both sides of the ball. Offensively, Sims, after the interceptions, lead his team on 5 straight scoring drives that lead to 5 straight touchdowns.
Like them or lump them. Alabama proved that you can indeed come back from the dead. For those that watched the game, it was practically a forgone conclusion that the home team would lose. But halftime adjustments, and alterations, corrections and wholesale changes made the difference.
And this is a lesson for us all. Naturally and spiritually, at times we may be down, but we are never out. We may fall behind, but we can always get ahead. We may be down, but we can always rise again. Sound Biblical? Of course it is. Just ask Jesus. Our Lord was dead. He was not asleep, or in a coma or unconscious. He was dead. But he rose from the dead with all power in His hand. And He showed us that if we put our trust in him, we too can come back from beyond hope.
A comeback is a spiritual thing. To see one is special; to experience one is supernatural. If you or someone you know is trailing in life, just remember that you too can come back from way back, even back from the dead. Because it’s not over until God says it’s over.
