These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city. Heb 11:13-14,16  

Your Shepherd knows that you were not made for this place. He knows you are not equipped for this place. So he has come to guide you out.

He has come to restore your soul. He is the perfect one do to so. He Has the right vision. He reminds you that you are like foreigners and strangers in this world. And he urges you to lift your eyes from the jungle around you to the
heaven above you.

 He also has the right direction. He made the boldest claim in the history of man when He declared, “I an the way” (John 14:6). People wondered if the claim was accurate. He answered their questions by cutting a path through the underbrush of sin and death. . .and escaping alive. He’s the only One who ever did. And He is the only One who can help you and me do the same.
