Exodus 4:15b
"... and I will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what ye shall do."
Behavioral researchers define teaching very specifically. First, of course, a teacher must have pupils. Then the teacher must be less efficient in doing whatever he is doing than he normally would be...

The Super-Supercomputer that Heals Itself

Isaiah 57:19
"'I create the fruit of the lips: peace, peace to him who is far off and to him who is near,' says the LORD, 'And I will heal him.'"

A healthy person with a minor injury heals without any thought required for the healing process. More severe injuries may require medical attention, but no amount of thought concentration on the healing process will speed healing along. This automatic healing process could not have evolved because without the power to heal in the first place, any injury to any creature would be ultimately fatal.

IBM is working on a super supercomputer that would run 500 times faster than any computer known today. It will be used to produce three-dimensional models showing how proteins fold as they do their work. It is hoped that the models will help medical researchers design more effective medicines. The computer system working on this task will have over one million processors linked to adjacent processors. The adjacent processors will monitor the main processors. If one of the main processors becomes faulty, the adjacent processor will remove it from the computing system electronically. If it works, the entire system will be known as a self-healing computer. While the computer may be able to heal itself, it will have to "think" about healing constantly. And despite its speed, its healing and computing abilities are still slower than ours.

God has given us great powers of healing. But we can do nothing to heal ourselves spiritually. For that we must rely on Jesus Christ and the salvation He brings.

Prayer: 
I thank You, Lord, for the healing of my soul through forgiveness. Amen.
