The Great Conspirator wishes to 'help' you conceal truths that you're not at all proud of. Things you've said, things you've done, things you
shouldn't have even thought. Nobody knows them but you because you've distanced them away from everyone else and kept them locked up inside a box
in the depths of your mind. You try to forget about them, as if they never happened but still you know they're there because they continue to haunt
you when you close your eyes or sit in silence for long periods of time. Everyday you look for the static of being busy to interrupt the seemingly
unescapable past that has become a part of you. Will you go along with the Great Conspirator? Will you give him the nod that yes, nobody should ever
know but you and him? After all, if you bring it out into the open, you'll be ridiculed, laughed at, and maybe even punished. Nobody would ever
understand, so back into the lock-box it goes...
Later, other such decisions will come up and knowing you're holding a few dark secrets already, you think your lock-box can hold one more. Do not be
a slave to darkness! Deny ignorance! Deny pretending these things never happened! "...the truth will set you free" (John 8:32). How? Talk about
it. If God seems unapproachable at first, trust your spouse or a close friend despite consequence. See how you feel afterwards. Do you feel a heavy
burden lifted? Imagine now what it would feel like if God Himself, the source of all good, would say, "I understand. Despite the harm you caused, I
forgive you because I love you. Go now free, cleaned of the ugliness from your past and do it no more" (based on John 8 and personal experience).
No more secrets? No more lies? Surely he could not forgive what's been done can He? Yes! He's all powerful, remember? And you can forgive
others too, "for if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you". Can you feel that much love to forgive
someone no matter how badly they've wronged you? If the answer is no, then it's probably because you have a few seemingly 'unforgivable' wrongs
yourself that need to be resolved.
So, I ask: Are you going to be a part of the Dark Secret Conspiracy, or will you relinquish the chains that hold you down?
