New Living Translation:
“As for me, I look to the Lord for help. I wait confidently for God to save me, and my God will certainly hear me.”(Micah 7:7)
“But me, I’m not giving up. I’m sticking around to see what God will do. I’m waiting for God to make things right. I’m counting on God to listen to me.”
“But as for me, I will look expectantly for the Lord and with confidence in Him I will keep watch; I will wait [with confident expectation] for the God of my salvation. My God will hear me.”
Good News Translation:
“But I will watch for the Lord; I will wait confidently for God, who will save me. My God will hear me.”
Prophet Micah saw no safety or comfort but in looking to the Lord, and waiting on God His salvation. So also beloved, trust in God alone. When under trials, look continually to your Divine Redeemer, that you may have strength and grace to trust in Him and to be an example to those around you.
God is ever more ready to hear than we to pray. Therefore all mistrust and despondency is then to be supremely avoided, and a certain hope and confidence in God is to be elicited. Be resolved to look alone to the Lord, and put your trust in Him, look up to the Lord in prayer, use an humble freedom with Him,put a total confidence in Him,expect all good things from Him, and wait patiently on Him by faith because He never fails. He will hear you and come through for you!
