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.
2 Corinthians 2:11 KJV Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
It is easier to resist the enemy when we know his tactics and that is what the Bible instructs us to do:
1 Peter 5:9 KJV Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
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.
What Are Nightmares?
Nightmares are all forms of bad and frightening dreams. They always tend to leave many in fear, shock, sadness and depression.
By estimation, more than 90% of nightmares people experience have their root in the spiritual, not from diet or stress. One of the tactics of the enemy is to make many believe he doesn't exist, so that he can operate undetected.
The menace of nightmares must be overcome; they must be stopped. That is the will of our Lord Jesus Christ for everyone on Earth. But we can not get the solution anywhere else apart from Him. He is the Deliverer; the only One who provides the best and permanent solution to spiritual problems.
Forms of Nightmares
Nightmares often come in diverse forms, some of which are as follows:
The most common form of nightmare is what science calls sleep paralysis. People tend to wake up to this strange and frightening feeling of being pinned down in bed by some sort ofa spiritual force, only to be told it is sleep paralysis. A demon, witch or warlock is always responsible for sleep Paralysis.
Eating In Dreams
Many people often find themselves eating in dreams. On many occasions, such dreams are neither good nor from God.
How To Overcome Nightmares
1. Get Saved
If you’re reading this article and you've not yet genuinely accepted Jesus Christ as your personal LORD and Saviour, know that it is the first and most vital step to your deliverance.
Romans 10:8-10 KJV But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
If you are yet to received Jesus into your heart, make the decision now and pray this short prayer:
Lord Jesus I come to you today recognising that I am a sinner. I submit myself to You, asking that you come into my heart and take absolute control of my life. Wash and cleanse me from all my sins. Make me righteous and holy. And write my name in the book of life. Thank you Lord Jesus for I know that you have done it. Amen.
2. Submit To God
We must submit to God in order to overcome the enemy. Satan likes to see people being disobedient against God because it makes them his easy prey.
James 4:7 KJV Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
3. Invite The LORD To Take Over Your Battle
4. Constantly Feed Your spirit-man
God bless you!
