The Dog Who Wouldn’t Die

Woman Scorned

Woman Scorned

I’m sure this title got your attention, but it’s based on a dream I had. Several years back, I had a dream about this dog that was misused and abused and tormented and tortured and when it appeared that is was finally dead, it popped up and was very much alive.

I knew that the dog represented a person and the reason God used a dog to symbolize this person is because dogs latch onto you and won’t let go.This is an edit because I didn’t share correctly. The dog had latched onto someone and would not let go.

I now think I know who this dog represents. At the time I had the dream, I thought it was someone else, but now I am pretty sure I know who this person is and I can tell you that this person is going to become a problem to someone. They are not going to just go away.

Oh, it may not seem like it now, but in a little while, that sweet loyal person is going to become someones worse nightmare.

This is why it’s important to let go when God says let go. It’s not that God is trying to spoil your fun, or even the person he uses, like a parent or friend or mentor, is trying to spoil your fun. It’s that God knows what some people are capable of when they become scorned.

The truth is, this “dog, who would not die” is going to become a catalyst in someones life. It’s not going to be good, but it’s going to work for the good of all involved. This is the purpose of the relationship. To teach the greatest lesson ever.

Judges 16:4-5

New International Version (NIV)

Some time later, he fell in love with a woman in the Valley of Sorek whose name was Delilah. The rulers of the Philistines went to her and said, “See if you can lure him into showing you the secret of his great strength and how we can overpower him so we may tie him up and subdue him. Each one of us will give you eleven hundred shekels[a] of silver.”

Judges 16:10

New International Version (NIV)

10 Then Delilah said to Samson, “You have made a fool of me; you lied to me. Come now, tell me how you can be tied.”
