Joshua's example, Joshua as master is free to do anything to his slave:

Joshua 9:27 (Amplified Bible)

9:27 But Joshua then made them hewers of wood and drawers of water for the congregation and for the altar of the Lord, to this day, in the place which He should choose.

The Hand of the LORD is the One that support and upholds us.

Psalms 37:24 (Amplified Bible)

37:24 Though he falls, he shall not be utterly cast down, for the Lord grasps his hand in support and upholds him.

If a slave looks to the face of his master, he is saying his master is his equal, so he can only look to the hand for direction and power, but a good master will always feed his slave, if a master decides not to feed the slave, the slave will just die.

B. Our eyes look to the LORD our GOD until He has mercy and loving-kindness for us.

"so our eyes look to the Lord our God, until He has mercy and loving-kindness for us."

Hebrews 12:2 (Amplified Bible)

12:2 Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize] that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
