I’m glad you’re ready to change that situation. However, all that you need to be delivered from bad dreams or gain victory inside a bad dream is gaining mastery over your spirit and soul.
That’s right! Asides that bad dreams can be spiritually planted by demon spirits, bad dreams can also be a result of what you feed your soul with. You can’t keep watching horror and tragic movies and expect not to have dreams that are in-line with that movie.
When our body sleeps, the mind does not sleep. In fact, study shows that it continues to process the things that you fed it with while you were awake. Many years ago during my school years, I used to dream of myself solving mathematical problems. Anytime I got a wrong answer, I would wake up in the middle of the night as though I had a bad dream. I’d pick up my book and locate the question I tackled in my dream to see why I got the wrong answer. I was never happy whenever I got a wrong answer, even in my dream. Meanwhile, during the day or while awake, my addiction to mathematics was clear to all. I wasn’t the best, but I just loved to challenge myself. It’s why I kept having dreams of myself solving maths problems.
I once heard of a scientist who discovered the solution to a medical condition through a dream. He was so committed to finding a solution that even his mind continued the research while his body was asleep. It’s just amazing what our mind can do. Our mind can search the internet on its own, it can test solutions on its own, it can travel to nations on its own. Honestly, many people are limited because of the kind of information they feed their mind. The mind is powerful, it can continue anything you started while you were awake. It’s why you sleep and wake up the next morning with a brand new idea.
If you want to have good dreams, feed your mind or soul with good things. If you want to have bad dreams, then continue feeding you soul with bad things. This is why I encourage young people to desist from listening to certain secular songs. There are some songs listen and flow with that become a dream while you sleep. So although you didn’t lose the love of your life as the lyrics of the song states, but because you like the song and flowed with it, you’d have dreams of you losing someone. Be careful what you take into your soul.
That said, spirits can also program bad dreams into a person’s sleep. We all know that man is a spirit that has a soul which lives on this earth through a body. Which means it’s impossible to be a man without a body. Without a body, you’d just be a spirit-soul, not a spirit-man.
The spirit controls the physical, and that’s why most of the things that happen in your dream also manifest physically if you don’t do anything to counter them. Now I don’t mean that spirits control the physical, rather I mean the spirit of a man controls his physical world. Which means before anything can happen in your physical world, it has to pass through your spirit. Demon spirits know this, and that’s why they’d rather come to you when your body is asleep. They know that anything they successfully sow into your spirit through your dream has a 99 percent chance of manifesting in your physical life. This is also why they don’t waste time appearing to people physically. If they appear to you physically, then it’s because they couldn’t penetrate your spirit.
I’ve said this before, God’s word is not only powerful when you’re physically awake, it’s also powerful when you are asleep. Any scripture you believe and receive will work both in your physical life and your spiritual life. If you can quote a scripture physically, can your spirit man also access that scripture? We must understand that the Word of God that we receive and believe physically is a weapon to our spirit man. What you casually declared or quoted physically could appear as a sword in the hands of your spirit man. Ephesians 6:17 even made that clear when it said, “And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God”.
I remember how I used to dream of myself in a dark forest being chased by armed men. There was a particular black tree I’d always run to for protection, and each time I climb that tree, the people chasing me would just run passed me. Nothing good was happening in my physical life during that time. So I decided to begin a hearty study of God’s Word, to a point that my spirit man became more alive to the word of God. The next time I had that dream, I had a sword in my hand, and although I wasn’t sure why I did it, but I cut down that black tree with the sword. The surprising thing was, the people who I thought were chasing me still ran passed me. Which means they were never chasing after me. That was the last time I had that dream.
I rarely get attacks in my dream because they know I’m more dangerous asleep than when I’m awake. It wasn’t too long ago that one demon came to fight me in the dream, I gave it a kick that left a physical injury on my leg. Apparently, there was a table right next to where I slept that night, and that was the table I hit. I’m sure that demon died that night, the kick was heavy😂. See ehn, God’s word can turn your spirit man into a kung-fu master.
So yes, the only way to gain victory over demonic visitations in your dream is to let God’s word dwell richly in your heart. Prayer is good, but the only power demons are subjected to is God’s word. That’s why despite all your prayers, you still have those dreams.
I hope this has brought enlightenment to someone.
Remain ever blessed, in Jesus precious name!
