Treasure Verse Tuesday - Psalm 89:14

"Righteousness and justice
are the foundation of Your throne..."
Psalm 89:14

I share this "treasure verse" with you today hoping this it will bring comfort and surety to your heart as it did to mine when I read it. When I opened my Bible the morning I was in Psalm 89, I had been feeling a little heartache of "injustice" (from my small perspective of life). As I soaked in this verse, my heart poured out thanks to God for this truth -- His throne's foundation are righteousness and justice. I trust in His justice and His righteousness. He is so gracious.

God's justice and righteousness go hand in hand all throughout scripture. Click here for more scriptures.

Since reading that scripture several weeks ago, I have been journalling other verses I come across during my morning quiet time that also speak of His "righteousness and justice". I pray these truth treasures minister to your heart, too.

"But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!" Amos 5:24

"I will betroth you to me forever; I will betroth you in righteousness and justice, in love and compassion. I will betroth you in faithfulness, and you will acknowledge the LORD." Hosea 2:19-20

"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given...He will reign on David's throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness..."
Isaiah 9:6-7

"In love a throne will be established; in faithfulness a man will sit on it— one from the house of David—one who in judging seeks justice and speeds the cause of righteousness. Isaiah 16:5

"...but with righteousness he will judge the needy, with justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth." Isaiah 11:4

"So this is what the Sovereign LORD says: 'See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who trusts will never be dismayed. I will make justice the measuring line and righteousness the plumb line..." Isaiah 28:16-17

Hey! This is a great idea. I might just pick up a fun new journal--always looking for a reason to get a cute new one! Just put one scripture on a page and see how God uses it to teach me, remind me, grow me.

You are such a good Bible teacher!!

Love you!
