Understanding one’s dream will automatically equal understanding one’s life. It is so unfortunate that folks ignore or not see the necessity of discovering the hidden messages hidden in their dreams.
Today I want us to explore the understanding of taking or gaining control in our dreams. Can you recall having a dream and in this dream you said something, did something or something was done to you, where it seemed you had no control over it? More often than not it is only when you would have awakened from the dream and begin to play back the events of the dream that you wish you had done things different in the dream.
Many folks in telling me their dreams express to me how they feel so defenseless in their dreams. In fact there is little to no defense from their end, from whomever or whatever is attacking or leading them in the dream. In some cases it is almost as if while they're in the dream they’re just a character in the dream with little to no will power of their own and they're just playing their role.
Unfortunately this is very common with many dreamers; at the same time it is a tactic mastered by Satan to not only gain control in the dream but with the ultimate goal of bring about evil manifestations in the dreamer’s life via the dreamer’s unknowing co-operation. For example, let’s say you had a dream and in this dream someone that you know in real life that hates you, is feeding you something that looks creepy. However, in the dream you're thinking, why this person who hates me is feeding me? But even though you’re aware this is your enemy you consume the food anyway. Consequently, it is only when you awake you’re puzzled as to why would you eat from someone that hates you, nevertheless, it is only at this point that you wish you had refused the food.
Well in order to understand this mystery we must as always seek spiritual laws for insight into this matter. Scripture says to us, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring Lion, walking about, seeking whom he may devour” 1 Peter 5:8. Well, the first thing our adversary wants us to believe is that our dreams are just that, dreams! With this way of thinking it sets the stage for the dreamer to become complacent and defenseless in the dream. Unknowing to the dreamer, he’s being set up by his adversary because the adversary is acutely aware of this spiritual law and he will take full advantage of it. How is he doing this you may ask? Well, in making the dreamer believes his dream is just a dream; the dreamer automatically lowers all his defenses. In so doing the dreamer is resisting the command of being sober and vigilant. Once the dreamer’s ability to be sober and vigilant has been disabled, according to the above law his adversary has the right to devour him and simultaneously invoking another law to secure his evil intent. That other law states the following, “But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way” Matthew 13:25, Pleased! Note carefully that the enemy is planting his evil seeds while the dreamer is sleeping (defenseless, unaware etc).
As a reminder, your dreams are spiritual, meaning while you’re asleep your body is asleep but your spirit is interacting with the spirit world. The spirit world is the parent world to our natural world. Everything in our natural world has its origin from the spirit world. Therefore in order for manifestation to occur in our natural world from the spirit world there must be an agreement between the spirit world and our natural world. With all of that being said, Satan (who is a spirit) through symbols is planting evil seeds in the spirit realm (our dream) with the sole idea of us not resisting what he’s doing, which will automatically secure a spirit human agreement and will eventually produce the physical manifestation of what he’s originally done in the spirit realm. This is why folks that have dreams of some creature biting them in their dreams, will experience some type of unexplained sickness or strange happenings in their life.
In order to be in control while dreaming one has to saturate themselves with scripture. Consistent reading of the bible is the only tested and proven tool to successfully build your spirit. I am not telling you this to seem spiritual, the reality is I am providing you with the spiritual antidote that not only gives you control in your dreams but causes you to resist the enemy on every level. The spiritual law states, “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks” Luke 6:45. Which simply means that the more scriptures one gets into their spirit, their spirit will automatically regurgitate those scriptures it has been feeding on. As it relates to the spirit realm, all spirits, Angelic and Demonic responds and submit only to spiritual laws. Therefore, you must seek control in your dreams by allowing your spirit that has been feasting on the word to challenge what would have normally control you in the dream.
