I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well Psalm 139:14 (KJV)
In the past two days I have seen stories about the human immune system. Of course, during the past 18 months, we have been immersed with stories about the COVID-19 vaccines and the immunity it gives against the Coronavirus.
A story I watched last evening was about how scientists are experimenting with using the human immune system to combat cancer. There have been some fascinating and inspiring events that have come from this research. Enabling (perhaps “tricking” is a better word) our immune system to fight cancer might be pending a miracle.
Yet the larger blessing/miracle is the immune system itself. I saw a story on the news this morning about a young boy who was born without any antibodies that would fight off infections. He was vulnerable to any virus that might come his way, and he was almost always sick. After some exhaustive medical work, doctors have found some means to start up his immune system. However, he still needs to take injections every two week to make sure that he has some antibody production.
The point here is that our Creator came up with a miraculous method of keeping us healthy and alive. If there was ever a case for arguing about the existence of an Intelligent Designer, I think that I would point to the immune system as a significant case in point.
Prayer: Lord, you have made us in ways that we do not completely understand, but we do recognize you as the Master Designer, Amen
