And soon I found myself able to either leave the tempting situation in my dreams or simply wake myself up before doing anything. Indeed, as I was learning to resist, the enemy gradually lost interest and moved on. As for nightmares and demonic dreams, sometimes I would experience sleep paralysis, where my body would be unable to move during a bad dream and I would have no strength.
Again, I would feel defeated and frustrated after waking up. But soon I learned I needed to resist in these dreams as well, and not just fight but really get angry.
Anger is more useful than despair. It actually convicted me in terms of spiritual warfare. Just as I should get angry if someone is oppressing one of the orphans, I also need to get angry if the enemy is trying to oppress me, whether in the physical or in my dreams. So now when I have a really bad nightmare or demonic dream, I literally get angry. Why does God allow lustful dreams and nightmares?
Honestly, there is no clear answer. I know God has trained me in spiritual warfare through my dreams and has also strengthened my purity. Sometimes a lustful dream that I have actually has nothing to do with me, but with some church members or friends who are struggling with lust. The dream can be a wake up for me to be praying against that attack. Please do not despair or give up if you have found yourself tortured by bad dreams. It can help to share with some people you trust so that you can receive prayer and encouragement from them.
We are all more than conquerors through Christ Romans and we can do all things through Him who gives us strength Philippians ! For those that could use a bit more guidance regarding purity, please watch the following message….
