Inside is bigger than outside

He looked round again and could hardly believe his eyes. There was the blue sky overhead, and grassy country spreading as far as he could see in every direction, and his new friends all round him laughing.

“It seems, then, said Tirian, smiling himself, “that the stable seen from within and the stable seen from without are two different places.”

“Yes,” said the Lord Digory. “Its inside is bigger than its outside.”
The Last Battle, C.S. Lewis
An apt description of living in God’s kingdom—its inside is bigger than its outside! What we see of this world with our eyes and comprehend with our other senses is NOT all there is. There is SO much more. And that more is what is permanent.

As a matter of fact, if I can see it, it won't last.

The spiritual world is the only one that is real and unfading. Lord, help me to continually “look round” with spiritual eyes, and be amazed at how big Your kingdom is...from the inside out.

"We look not to the things that are seen
but to the things that are unseen.
For the things that are seen are transient,
but the things that are unseen are eternal."

~ 2 Corinthians 4:18
