Doctors Use God’s Invention

“Hast thou not poured me out as milk, and curdled me like cheese? Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and hast fenced me with bones and sinews. Thou hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.” Job 10:10-12

For thousands of years, man has applied a huge variety of things to his skin to help injuries heal. By trial and error he has come up with ointments that keep injured skin moist to assist the natural healing process. Antibiotics were eventually added to these ointments. But until recently no one has been able to actually increase the rate at which skin naturally heals.

Mouse epidermal growth factorThat has now changed. Epidermal growth factor is one of the chemicals that God created to help keep the body in working order. Research has learned how to copy the chemical responsible, and tests have shown that application of the man-made epidermal growth factor can speed the rate at which wounds heal. Studies show that wounds on which epidermal growth factor is used heal about a day-and-a-half faster than normal. That might not seem like much, but when burn victims need many skin grafts, epidermal growth factor could mean the difference between life and death.

With all his knowledge of the chemistry of biology, one would naturally assume that man should be able to develop better healing agents than mindless evolutionary processes. But, of course, man is not emulating mindless evolutionary processes but the work of the Creator God Himself. The Creator of natural epidermal growth factor had the original wisdom to design it and include it in our physiology.

Dear Lord, as I look around Your creation, I see so many ways in which Your knowledge and wisdom is so obviously practical. Help me to understand that all of Your wisdom, including what You tell me in Scripture, is really practical and useful for life. Amen.
