Romans 8:28 ‘We know that in all things God works for good with those who love him’
We may reason, “Where is God’s hand in this turmoil in South Africa…Nkandla, endemic corruption?” “Are we in a rudderless society, devoid of moral leadership?” The only compass that we have that can transcend circumstance is our implicit faith in and love for our God, trust that his ‘good’ will prevail. “What about great personal pain?” We are reassured that ‘God works’ he is at work now, planning and carrying out, he is involved in our lives. Happiness is not considered a fruit of the Spirit, but know that ‘joy’ and ‘peace’ are fruits of the Spirit Galatians 5:22. Happiness is based on external stimuli/circumstances/events, ‘joy’ and ‘peace’ are from God. Seek God’s Spirit in quietness and feel his joy, peace and resulting ‘good’ flow. Bless you.
