A miracle is an event attributed to divine intervention. The odds are stacked against Queens Park Rangers at this stage of the English Premier League football season and the club management have realised that their crusade to avoid the drop into the Championship (lower league) is no longer in their own hands as they seek divine intervention.
When Redknapp was appointed on 24 November 2012, he sounded optimistic about the short-term future of Queens Park Rangers (QPR), telling reporters after taking the reigns at the club: “I can’t wait to get to work and get the results necessary to kick-start our season.” But now it seems he is taking solace more in the efficacy of his prayers rather than in his own natural abilities.
Arguably, QPR have more than enough talent in their squad, especially after their former manager Mark Hughes’s summer spending spree with the intention to avoid relegation. But, Redknapp has enjoyed very little victory since he took over at Loftus Road, with only a couple of wins in about 22 matches.
If you are ever in a deep trouble or in a desperate need where all known human or natural powers cannot help you, you need a miracle.
There are no miracle workers with a track record like Jesus. He has demonstrated strong abilities to do supernatural things beyond human comprehension. Perhaps Redknapp is communicating with Jesus much more now than ever before.
The Bible records many miracles performed by Jesus and his disciples. Also, we know the Bible expects believers to do great and miraculous exploits through faith in Jesus Christ, and here is an example:
One day, a man came to Jesus and begged him to heal his epileptic son. The man told Jesus that he had already tried to get help from the disciples, but they had failed. Jesus prayed and the boy was healed.
Later, His disciples asked him why they were not able to get the job done, and Jesus responded in Matthew 17:20: “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.”
Mustard seed faith
Therefore, it is safe to say that Redknapp and his team need just a mustard seed size of faith in order to activate a miracle in the team. They don’t need a massive amount, just a tiny little mustard seed size. All they need to do is to believe.
When the disciples asked for more faith, Jesus essentially told them they didn’t need more faith because a little bit would go a long way. And the Bible proves that a small amount of genuine faith is all it takes to make big changes. The issue here is not the size of your faith, but the quality to have enough faith to focus solely on the miracle worker who has the power to bless your natural abilities and make it supernatural. Jesus has the power to make your ordinary effort achieve extraordinary results.
A miracle is sometimes thought of as a perceptible interruption of the laws of nature. Right now QPR must look beyond their natural abilities. The owner Tony Fernandes, is ready to once again throw more money at their problem and buy new players. As a result, Redknapp is praying that God will use his new recruits to kick-start a miraculous turnaround at the club.
