Have you ever wondered why you sleep and all you do is have bad dreams? and feel like someone is pressing you down, and you find it hard to get up?.
Christianity is not a bed of roses. God never promised us in His word that we would live a problem-free life when we get saved. Every genuine Christian should understand that spiritual disturbances are a normalcy. If we are truly born of God, the enemy will hate and fight against us.
We are in a battle field and every person who knows God is involved; whether they know it or not.
The enemy came to steal, to kill and destroy(John 10:10). And the Holy Bible tells us that he roams about like a roaring lion, looking for whom to devour; and for that reason we shouldn’t be ignorant of his devices.
1 Peter 5:8 KJV – Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
I once got on Google and tried to deduce the percentage of those who have been victims of nightmares and I happened to find out that there are very many out there who are seeking help from persistent nightmares.
This isn’t limited to Christians. Even unbelievers are victims of nightmares too. In most cases, the unsaved are actually the ones who experience the worse nightmares.
