This morning I dreamed that I was a demon and I was seeing my shadow. I was a little scared in my dream so I began to proclaim the Word of God and shout to Jesus. Next to me there was another woman that I knew she was Christian and I was praying loudly and screaming for the demon to disappear. I was looking at myself and suddenly it disappeared. What could this mean?
There’s no reason to look for hidden meanings of what you dream. God says in the Bible that nightmares come from too many worries (Ecclesiastes 5:3) and I’m assuming that you had many discussions about demons with someone or you think too much on this subject. It is not the case to give demons and Satan to much attention. We should not underestimate their existence but rather get closer to God and gather His Word in your heart because this will bring you rest and peace. Here are some Bible verses that prove this:
I have rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies, As much as in all riches. (Psalm 119:14)
Those who love Your law have great peace, And nothing causes them to stumble. (Psalm 119:165)
Study the Word of God and pray that God will give you rest in your sleep and do not talk about demons or other tales that don’t make sense that only sow worries and anxiety in your heart. It is also written in the Bible:
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7)
Afterwards, in order to have peace we have to be careful to the things that we allow to enter our hearts. Here’s a filter recommended by God for us to apply in all circumstances:
Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. (Philippians 4:8)
May God help you!
