LESSONS FROM THE MANCHESTER DERBY

So the Manchester derby was last night, it was meant to be the night that Manchester Cuty would be crowned premier League Champions. As at half time the score was Manchester city 2: Manchester United 0. Surely the cup was safely secured by City, am sure some fans had started the process of celebration but in the 53rd and 55th minute United scored and the scores were leveled. At this point City could still be the league winners, except that in the 69th minute of the match United scored again and the game ended Manchester City 2: Manchester United 3. Manchester City will now have to win its next two games and United who are second will have to lose, or City will just have to wait till the end of the season to be crowned Champions

The lessons:

1. It’s not over till it’s over – no matter the situation, no matter the circumstances, God can and will still come through for you. Don’t look at stormy seas, but keep your eyes focused on the Master. He will come through, the end is not yet here, it can’t end until you win.

2. Take advantage of every opportunity presented to you, you never know if it will be your last opportunity. “making the very most of your time [on earth, recognizing and taking advantage of each opportunity and using it with wisdom and diligence], because the days are [filled with] evil.”
‭‭EPHESIANS‬ 5:16 AMP

3. Your day of celebration is assured, it may be postponed but it is assured. “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors and gain an overwhelming victory through Him who loved us [so much that He died for us].”
‭‭ROMANS‬ ‭8:37‬ ‭AMP‬‬

4. Never give room for your opponent to regroup, keep on the offensive. The Bible says “And do not give the devil an opportunity [to lead you into sin by holding a grudge, or nurturing anger, or harboring resentment, or cultivating bitterness].”
‭‭EPHESIANS‬ ‭4:27‬ ‭AMP‬‬
