What Does The Bible Say About Nightmares
Nightmares are a common fear that affects many people. Sometimes they can be caused by things like anxiety and stress, but other times they’re just part of our natural sleep cycle. Whether you suffer from nightmares frequently or only occasionally, it’s comforting to know that God has given us guidance on how to deal with them! In this article, we’ll look specifically at verses from the Bible that speak directly about dreams and nightmares.
“When I say to the wicked, ‘O wicked man, you shall surely die,’ and you do not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand.” Ezekiel 3:18
God is a just God, but he is also merciful. The Bible tells us that God will judge all men according to their deeds. The wicked man who does not heed the warning of his neighbor will die in his sin without any hope of forgiveness. However, if you warn him and he repents and turns back from his way, then your neighbor may find mercy on the day of judgment because you cared enough to warn him about his sinful ways before it was too late.
“For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins.” Hebrews 10:26
- What does this mean?
A sacrifice is an offering to God. What is the truth? It’s a set of facts. Sinful human beings are guilty of not following those facts and failing to offer their sacrifices; if they continue to do so, there will no longer be any way for them to atone for their sins because there won’t be any more sacrifices left. So if you’ve committed a sin and don’t want to continue doing it, repent by asking God’s forgiveness—he’ll forgive you just as soon as you ask him sincerely!
“Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path.” Psalm 119:105
The Bible is a light in the darkness, both literally and figuratively. It is a lamp for your feet and a light for your path.
The Bible provides comfort to those who are suffering, wisdom to those who seek it, strength to those who need it, and hope in the midst of tragedy.
When you read God’s Word, you will find yourself surrounded by peace even when the world around you seems chaotic and full of pain.
“The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him and delivers them.” Psalm 34:7
When you’re having a nightmare, it’s important to know that God is on your side. He will protect you from any and all harm and lead you to safety in His abundant grace.
“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” James 4:7
The Bible is clear about how to deal with nightmares. The passage below from James 4:7 says, “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”
The best way to prevent nightmares is by submitting yourself to God and resisting the devil (the one who causes them).
“Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.” Luke 18:1
“Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. He said: ‘There was once a judge in a certain city who did not fear God or respect people. In that city there was a widow who kept coming to him, saying, “Give me justice against my opponent.” For a while he refused; but later he said to himself: “Though I have no fear of God and no respect for anyone, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will give her justice so that she may not wear me out by continually coming.” And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says! Will not God bring about justice for His elect who cry out to Him day and night? Will He delay long in helping them? I tell you that He will bring about justice quickly for them! However, when the Son of Man comes back again with His angels in glory then He will reward each person according to what they have done.’
The Bible has many verses that speak directly to nightmares.
You may have heard the Bible referred to as “the Word of God.” This is a reference to the fact that it is God’s divinely inspired revelation of Himself to mankind. The Bible contains everything we need to live our lives according to His plan and purpose—and it holds up under intense scrutiny. It has been tested by time and man’s attempts at destruction, but remains intact as an all-powerful source of comfort, guidance, wisdom and hope for those who seek it out during times of struggle or crisis.
The truth is that nightmares are part of life for most people at some point or another—whether brought on by stress during exams or just occasional bouts with insomnia—and having a resource like this available can help you overcome anxiety about what you’re experiencing without disregarding your faith in God at all!
The Bible is full of verses that speak directly to nightmares. The Scriptures tell us that when we are afraid at night, the Lord is our light and our salvation (Psalm 27:1). He will not let us be shaken or tossed about by any wind. He will keep our souls safe in His hands and hold them close to His heart (Psalm 23:4). When we are weighed down by troubles during the day or when we can’t sleep at night, it’s important for us to remember these promises from God’s Word!
