Perhaps it's God who knows a secret, the secret of our deepest needs.
We have a closing benediction we sing at the end of each service, clasping hands across pews and aisles. (Think of the Whoville community scene.)
By the end of the service, God had evidently reached into the man's spirit with the encouragement he needed. Now, he was smiling and gladly reaching for the hands next to him.
How blessed is the one whom You choose and bring near to You to dwell in Your courts. We will be satisfied with the goodness of Your house, Your holy temple.
Psalm 65:4 NASB
21 Jesus and his disciples came to the town of Capernaum, and on the next Sabbath Jesus went to the synagogue and began to teach. 22 The people who heard him were amazed at the way he taught, for he wasn't like the teachers of the Law; instead, he taught with authority.
23 Just then a man with an evil spirit came into the synagogue and screamed, 24 “What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Are you here to destroy us? I know who you are—you are God's holy messenger!”
25 Jesus ordered the spirit, “Be quiet, and come out of the man!”
26 The evil spirit shook the man hard, gave a loud scream, and came out of him.
Mark 1:21-26 GNT
I've wondered how many times the man with the unclean spirit had tried to quietly sneak into the back of the synagogue. Trying not be noticed, praying he would be, and recklessly hoping to be delivered from his tormentor.
God met him there, in His House. And the man was "blessed ... satisfied with the goodness (he found in His) house". See you in church, Dear Reader, where God's blessings and goodness await us, satisfaction guaranteed!
