Isaiah 51:1 Listen to Me, you who pursue righteousness, you who seek the LORD: look to the rock from which you were hewn, and to the quarry from which you were dug.
God is calling out today to those who are seeking righteous (and justice) - because they are found only in Him. Read that first phrase carefully again: those who are trying to implement righteousness, however imperfectly they may be working at a human level, are in fact - whether they know it or not - seeking Him. Wow! And as they do so, they need to find and locate their true roots: mankind was created in the image of God and it is only when we reconnect with Him and recognise our provenance to be rooted in that creation will we find true justice and righteousness.
