Glory be to God that we have Him as our defender, our help, our guide, our guard. He is constantly and consistently giving us victory over bad dreams and attacks of the enemy. In this evil world, He gave us such an assurance in Psalm 105:14 which says, God didn’t let anyone oppress them. God punished kings for their sake: CEB. God is real, peradventure you are reading this post and you are still in doubt of His existence, I want you to know that He is as real as what you can see, touch and feel.
The battle is fierce
There is no doubt that the battle we face as human is so fierce. Whether we recognize it or not, it doesn’t change the existence of battles that surround us. Especially as children of God, we recognize both physical and spiritual battles.
But I want to specifically talk about the victory God gives you and I in our sleep. The most dangerous time is when a man is asleep. He is most vulnerable when he is unconscious of his environment. Even the mighty man in the face of sleep will let his guard down. That is nature! God in his infinite wisdom ordained rest for man. In Psalm 3:5 I sleep and wake up refreshed because you, LORD, protect me. CEV
The moment we fall asleep, we become unconscious of what is happening around us. This means that so many things can go wrong when we are asleep. And the Psalmist recognizes that, He says “You Lord protect me”. Mathew 13:25 says But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. And I can relate with that through dreams.
Victory over Nightmares
Have you ever had a bad dream or nightmare? I have had terrible dreams myself, though I could wake up terrified. But I stand up with boldness and holy anger against the enemy, cancelling the effect it may bring in the powerful name of Jesus as I Plead the blood of Jesus. For greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world.
And that’s the big difference between a child of God and those who do not accept the rulership of God. An attack from sleep or dreams could cripple their destiny forever.
He Never Sleeps
It doesn’t matter how terrible the dream is, we wake up as children of God knowing fully well. He that watches over us do not sleep nor slumber. Psalm 121 verse 4 “indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep”.
Any attack in your dream?
Declare the word of God and believe it. That’s the only language the devil listens to. He cannot argue the word of God. The Bible says in Psalms 105:14-15 “He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes; Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.” this is a great assurance for you as a child of the most high God.
Let the word of God be in your heart, in your mouth, carry it wherever you go.
This is our Victory in JESUS!
