DON’T LET THE LITTLE DOGS BOTHER YOU
~
SHAKE OFF THE LIARS AND GOSSIPS ~

I want to talk to you today about “Don’t Let the Little Dogs Bother You.” I delivered newspapers at the ages of 11 and 12. I would start collecting from the customers on Thursdays so I could pay my bill on Saturday morning and then buy a hamburger and go to the movies. Usually on the deliveries I would throw the folded newspapers onto the porches from the sidewalk. This was not always possible, so sometimes (especially when I wanted to collect money) I would have to go into the yard. Lots of times these yards were fenced because of mean dogs.

God always protected me. Near the end of my morning route, about sunrise, I had to go to a home where there was a very mean red English Chow. On the corner just before I would arrive at this house, a white Boxer (dog) would meet me and finish the route with me. The boxer kept the Chow from bothering me and hurting me.

The dogs that were the most bothersome were the little dogs. They would snap at my feet and legs and many times grab hold of my trousers with their teeth. However, I learned just to shake them off. I have found through the years that it is the same way in the Christian walk: shake the “little dogs” off. The “little dogs” represent the people who lie or gossip about you. When people lie or gossip about you, just shake them off.

Situations that arise where people gossip or lie about you are usually from either of two sources: a vindictive spirit or a spirit of jealousy. It may even be a loved one who performs such actions. What you have to realize is that the “instrument” – whatever or whomever is the channel through whom the attack flows – is just that: an “instrument.”

A “gossip” – a person who gossips – is defined as “a person who likes talking about other people’s private lives in a chiefly derogatory manner.” The Holy Bible also talks about “busybodies,” which in the original Greek means “to meddle, to work all around” and sometimes refers to the “curious arts” or the “works of Satan.” The devil is actually the source of gossip, whether true or false, and merely uses – or works through – the “instrument.”

It is interesting to note that the word “devil” is from the Greek “diabolos” and means “a traducer: one who attacks the reputation of another by slander or libel,” and is synonymous with “backbiter, slanderer, defamer.”

Especially egregious is the action of a Christian, one who claims to know Christ, who talks about another person in a defaming way, working around as a busybody – a gossip – about other people’s private lives. So repugnant is this action to the Lord that the Holy Spirit equates it to being a “murderer or a thief or an evildoer.” “But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters.” (Brit Chadashah: 1 Peter 4:15)

A “busybody” includes someone who brings up material from many years past that is either non-relevant to today because of the BLOOD of Christ purging it … or is either false or an exaggeration. A “jealous” person is a person who is “envious of someone else’s achievements or advantages.” People are never jealous of you unless you are either doing more than they are or have more than they have (which can include “giftings” of God).

Here is a quote that sums up the picture very nicely: “Criticism, condemnation, and complaint are creatures of the wind. They come and go on the breath of lesser beings and have no power over me.” (Author unknown.)

My friend, remember to shake off the “little dogs.”

If people are jeaous of YOU – especially God’s People – it is usually because you have a strong gifting from God and the enemy of your soul is “stirring” them up against you to either discourage YOU or to get you to quit. Remember, it is the devil who is the source of the opposition and resistance, not the instrument – the people – he is using. Pray for the people.

Below are three (3) resources to help you in your work for God. You can NOT miss with these! This is a great way to confuse your enemies and bless those around you including the nations God will reach through you. Let that IDEA God has given you come to pass then let God anoint it for great works … and then – don’t stop with one success – go for repeat success. You can do it in the name of the LORD.

THE SECRET

Do you know your goals for God every day when you get up in the morning? Or do you have to struggle mentally to interfuse them with your daily schedule. Maybe you are a housewife, or a businessman, or construction worker. Whatever your vocation in life, your REAL JOB (that is, your spiritual job description) was defined before the foundation of the world.

No, I am not talking about serving God by living holy or being a witness for Christ; these are definitely part of the lifestyle of a real follower of Jesus: one who has had an actual rebirth spiritually at a specific point in time and space. I’m talking about fulfilling the occupational part of your ministry, or more correctly, God’s ministry through you.

You will never know this until you have spent a life defining period either alone with God or (in the case of a busy mother) in a time of consecration with God. Your spiritual occupation will define your life goals (both major and minor) and help you in your decision making processes (both major and minor): both long-term and daily.

After you begin operating in your spiritual occupation, the LORD will from time to time revise or add to your responsibilities as you develop and show proof to Him of successful stewardship. (Matthew 25:14-30) He may even instruct and lead you into a completely different spiritual occupation after a period of time. This is why we need to have times of refreshing that the Holy Bible mentions.

You must take off the wraps when you are seeking direction from God and instructions for your life and spiritual occupation. Do not be afraid to THINK BIG. Realize that God may have something in mind for you that you have never considered or thought of. That is where obedience comes into play. Also, do not share your instructions from God with other people to get feedback. If you KNOW it is God … and if it lines up with the Word of God … then DO IT!

Lots of people have been led off the path of the will of God for their life by weird people … and even by two or three confirmations of a wrong thing by weird people. By weird people I am talking about people who have no real productivity in their lives but who are always prophesying falsely to other people.

This is why you need to start every day by reading and communicating with God in His Holy Word and then in prayer. God has thoughts ABOVE your thoughts. His thoughts are NOT your thoughts.

For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways, says the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. [Isaiah 55:8-9]

This is where, again, it is important to take off the wraps! Do not just think outside the box! God is not limited to three dimensions, or even to time and space. Just read His Word and LISTEN! Just talk to Him and LISTEN. Just pray in tongues and LISTEN! This is why Ephesians 3:20 tells us that our Heavenly Father is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.

That POWER in us is the energizing of our inner man by the renewing of the Word of God and the anointing by the Spirit of God as we listen, receive by faith, and obey. Here is where many people miss the mark: OBEY. We may be students of the Word, some even professors of theology in graduate schools; however, we may miss the mark of obedience. And, missing the mark is equated with sin. We can be obedient in lifestyle and witness; however, when God directs us to take a definitive life style changing move, are we obedient? Changing cultural settings or leaving our comfort zones are examples of such.

Isaiah tells us that the Word of God will not return void. It will cause you to be PRODUCTIVE in your spiritual occupation and it will make the way for your PROVISION. You will be productive and God will provide for you!

For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there. But they water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower [for production] and bread to the eater [for provision], so shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth. [Isaiah 55:10-11]

Spend time in the Word of God. It won’t return VOID. It will accomplish in your life and in the earth (the nations of the world) what God pleases. God’s Word will prosper in the purposes for which God sends it. Why not be a channel for His Holy Word. The Word of God shall not return to Him VOID, but it shall accomplish what He pleases, and it shall prosper in the thing for which He sends it. [Isaiah 55:10-11]

The Hebrew word VOID used in this passage is racham which means empty, without fruit or productivity. So if you want to know your spiritual occupation, and thereby make it a lot easier for your day by day decision making. If you want to know life at the fullest, the abundant life Jesus promised you, and if you want to be productive and see the provision of God in your life, then spend time in God’s Word.

Spend time in the Word of God: for your sake, and for the sake of God. What would you think if your children were so busy working but they never spent time with you? Many people in ministry are doing the same thing. Busy about God’s work but spending very little time with God. When we do this we not only lose out on fellowship with the GREATEST PERSON in the universe but we lose out on our own productivity and provision.

Spend time in God’s Word: things will begin to click in your life. You will be in the center of the will of God. God will provide for you. You will be productive. You will have the joy of working at your REAL JOB: the occupational ministry God chose for you before the foundation of the world. Remember, the thoughts of God are higher than your thoughts. But you have to KNOW His Thoughts!

The secret is in His Word!
