Overcoming Spiritual Attacks: A Deeper Look at My Dream

Overcoming Zombies!

Today, I want to take a deeper dive into the dream I shared in the YouTube video, "Overcoming Zombies" 

The dream was a powerful illustration of how sin and negative influences can take root in our lives.  Those "zombies" represented challenges we all face – areas where we struggle to live according to God's will. 

Finding the Higher Ground

In the dream, the person escapes the zombies by climbing to a higher vantage point. This symbolized seeking God's perspective.  It's a reminder that when we're facing spiritual battles, prayer is essential.  Taking that time to step back and connect with God allows us to see things more clearly. 

Iniquities: The Seeds of Trouble

The video talks about "iniquities," which are essentially repeated sins that grow stronger over time.  I used smoking as an example, but it could be anything that starts small and gradually takes control.  The key takeaway is to nip these things in the bud.  Address those initial choices before they become strongholds in your life.

Facing the Root Cause

The dream gets interesting when the person confronts the one who brought the zombies into the house.  This represents identifying the root cause of our struggles.  Sometimes, our problems stem from past choices or unresolved issues.  By acknowledging these roots, we can begin to deal with them and find true freedom.

The Sword of the Spirit

The Bible is our greatest weapon in spiritual warfare.  Verses like Matthew 4:4 remind us of the power of God's word.  Scripture equips us to discern truth from deception and gives us the strength to resist temptation.

Prayer and Fasting: Powerful Tools

The dream concludes with a focus on prayer and fasting.  Jesus himself spoke about the importance of these practices in overcoming spiritual attacks (Mark 9:29, Matthew 17:21).  In the video, I shared a personal experience of how prayer and fasting helped me grow closer to God and experience breakthrough.

Be Alert: The Enemy's Tricks

The dream doesn't shy away from the reality that the enemy will try to lure us back into sin after a victory.  The stories of Adam and Eve, and Job's wife, serve as reminders to stay vigilant.  The moment we think we've "won," that's often when the enemy steps up his attacks.

A Call to Action

This journey of overcoming spiritual attacks is something we can all relate to.  If you're struggling, know that you're not alone.  Seek God through prayer, immerse yourself in scripture, and consider incorporating prayer and fasting into your spiritual disciplines.
