Bad Dreams - Our Authority in Christ

Greetings dear reader,

Well, I was not going to publish my first post until tomorrow (Monday), however, because I was assaulted in my dreams last night I thought I'd better get it done while I'm inspired to write. Now before you think I might be a little nutty by saying that I was assaulted in my sleep, let me explain.

Have you ever had a dream where you're in some kind of danger? Who hasn't right? Well, last night around 1:30am I was assaulted by, what I would call, a demonic dream. Now I'm not going to go into detail about the dream or debate whether such dreams actually happen, or whether demons exist.

My purpose here is to simply share with you how I deal such dreams that occasionally happen to me. Okay, so in this dream I was actually fighting a demonic spirit that was trying to fill me with fear, which I can best describe by saying it was like being in a horror movie.

In this dream I was aware that I wanted to wake up, so I started to come against this demon using the name of Jesus. This was the start of dealing with this malevolent thing, and once I was awake I quickly got up and went to the bathroom to pray.

This is how I prayed and how I suggest you should pray also. First up I focused on Jesus reminding myself that He is the greater One living in me. Then I praised Him for a few minutes with some heart felt thanksgiving. Then I simply took my God given authority over that demon and told it be quiet and get on its way. 

Now, I can't exactly tell you why these dreams come from time to time, only that they do and we've got to deal promptly with such attacks. Be encouraged that as a believer in Christ you have been given express authority to deal devils. See Luke 10:19.  So take up the sword of the Spirit and fight, amen!

Have a blessed day 
Paul
