I will look unto the Lord. - Micah 7:7

Looking to creatures always ends in disappointment; therefore it is forbidden by Him who loves us best, and consults our best interests at all times.

The prophet had been weaned from this, by many and sore trials; and now he determines to look unto the Lord. Let us imitate his example. We cannot do better than look to the Lord, as our Captain, to command; as our Master, to direct; as our Father, to provide; and as our God, to defend.

His name is a strong tower, the righteous run into it and are safe. Looking to Jesus, will preserve us from a thousand snares; and prepare us to suffer as Christians and triumph as conquerors.
The eyes of the Lord are always upon us; may our eyes be ever towards the Lord.

Let us look to Him for all we need; from all we fear; through all that obstructs our progress; and so press on towards the mark for the prize of the high calling, which is of God in Christ Jesus.
He says, "Look unto me and be ye saved." It is recorded, "They looked upon Him and were lightened, and their faces were not ashamed." Jesus is the same, yesterday, to-day, and for ever.

Lord, shine on my benighted heart,
With beams of mercy shine;
And let Thy Spirit's voice impart
A taste of joys divine:
To Thee I look, to Thee I cry,
Oh, bring Thy sweet salvation nigh.
