There are many that live their life and walk around everyday smiling at everyone, greeting everyone and even being the “life of the party” as they say. Yet inside they are miserable and depressed. You may ask, but how can someone walk around smiling and be depressed or sad on the inside? It’s because they are faking happiness. They are pretending.
The Lord Jesus had times when He could have tried to pretend in order to please the crowd or the Pharisees, but He refused to. He was true to Himself and was truly happen because of the Spirit living inside of Him. He even said to them one day,
“Even if I bear witness of Myself, My witness is true, for I know where I came from and where I am going;” John 8:14
He knew who He was and where He came from. And because of that, negative words or accusations could not bring Him down.
When a person is not free, what you see in the picture above is what is inside of them. A soul that is locked in a prison. Maybe not a physical prison cell, but a spiritual, emotional, internal cell. A weak person. A person that is filled with doubts, fears, panic attacks, etc.
But once this evil is removed from your mind, you will not longer have a fake smile. You will have a genuine smile, because you are not pretending. You have to fight against every thought that exists to bring you down. And never be fake about who you are, because God already knows what is inside of you. He just needs you to take action to fix it.
May the God of the Bible Bless You
