God Dream Meaning and Interpretations


God Dream Symbol – To see God in your dream can have a number of implications depending on your own beliefs and religious background. Universally, God is a symbol of a greater power that is in control of the world and our destiny. It is a sign of a power that is out of our control and influence.

In Control of Our Destiny

Since God is viewed as someone who is in control of our destiny, dreaming of God can indicate the desire to let go of the pressure and stress that you have in your life.

You may feel that the amount of responsibility and burden you have is overwhelming you and you need to abdicate that responsibility to someone who can handle that pressure. Sometimes accepting that things are simply bigger than us is the key to dealing with uncertainty that the future holds.

A sign of Benevolence and Goodness

god dreamsAnother interpretation of this dream is that God is a sign of benevolence and compassion, willing to sacrifice himself so that people around him may live a better life. Dreaming about God can indicate that you have the sense of compassion and sacrifice inside of you or it can indicate that you need more of it in your life.

Perhaps you need to do some volunteer work or help out with a family member who is in need. Your dream may be letting you know that you need to focus on people around you.

A Symbol of Judgement and Forgiveness

God is also a symbol of judgment. Dreaming about God may indicate that you are worried about what other people may think about your life choices. You might have made some decisions in your past that you are not proud of today.

Alternatively, seeing God in your dream may be letting you know that you don’t have to hold on to your guilt anymore. By seeking forgiveness you can help clear your unconscious mind of the burdens that you are carrying around.

God can often be seen as life itself and the bringer of life. “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth…” Dreaming about God can often indicate that within us there is a creator and someone who can bring life into this world.

Christian Interpretation of God

Dreaming about God can often be a reflection of your religious beliefs and emotional feelings that you have towards God.

If you see Jesus in your dream it can be a reminder that someone else is in control of your destiny. While you may feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders, there is a great power that is looking out for you. He is there to take care of you and will help you along your journey in life.

Sometimes God can appear in dreams of those people who have turned their backs to religion. This could be a gentle reminder that even though you may have forgotten about Jesus, he has not forgotten about you. This is something that can be taken as a sign that you need to rekindle your walk with God.

Seeing God in your dream may also indicate that you have lost your way in this world, and need to find yourself again. Maybe you have been making choices in your waking life that you are not proud of or maybe you have been only focusing on making money and not your family.

Whatever the case, it may be a good time to take a step back and look at your priorities in life and see what is going to benefit you the most.

Alternative God Dream Interpretations

When God visits your dreams, it can reflect how you feel about spirituality and religion. It can also represent an obsession with perfection or try to achieve something beyond your reach. Are you trying to reach unattainable goals? This type of dream can reflect your own struggles to reach perfection. Maybe you need to change the way you see.

Seeing yourself praying to God symbolizes you feel sorry for the negative things you have done. Do you regret the mistakes you have made? This may be a time to make amends in some way. God speaking to you can symbolize you may have feelings of regret. What have you done to feel this way?

Dreaming that God has blue eyes is a sign he is your spiritual guide. It is an affirmation of your deep love and connection to God’s wisdom and love for all living things. Is much of your life spent helping those who have difficulty being heard?

Seeing yourself as a God is reminding that you have potential to achieve whatever you desire. You just need to try. Have you been too lazy to get out in the world to take action? It can also mean you may think you are better than others. Do you think you are superior to those around you? Are you in the habit of looking down on those around you?

Dreaming of God praying and saying your name, or the name of someone close to you can warn that you need to check that everything is in order in your life. It may be a time where you should go to the doctor for a physical checkup. This could be a sign of illness so you want to deal with it straight away. Being blessed by God brings the unexpected luck of some sort to your life. This could be a reward for living your life with integrity.

Seeing God watching you from a distance and he does not come up to you can mean you need to take care. Be wary of doing anything wrong for there are those who are just waiting for you to make a mistake. Beware of someone close to you who is manipulating you for their own agenda. When God points to something take note of what he points to. It could be he warns of bad luck if what he points to is dark. Or, it could be good news if what he points to is bright and light like the sun.

God can represent positive and negative influences in your life. To get a better understanding of your dream take notice of how he behaves and communicates in your dream. Talking to God on your own can warn there are those who gossip behind your back. There may be those who are masquerading as friends to cheat you.

Getting angry with God and trying to prove yourself to him can warn there are difficulties at home. This could mean there will be unpleasant events such as a fire or a break-in. This can be a warning to stay close to home. Do you have personal home security?

A dream that features God is a message to take notice of your intuition in relation to the things that happen in your waking life. This could be a time you reassess your goals and dreams, and you may even change your lifestyle.

    I had a dream i was at a beach with my family and friends and it was so beautiful there, the sun was setting and the ocean was gleaming with the sunlight. All of a sudden a tsunami started to form, we all got scared.. It grew pretty high but then it fell to our feet, didn’t hurt us. Then as the water hit the shore, a large black hand went back into the water. We all got stunned and shocked and scared, in disbelief of what we saw. Then 3 figures,
    all walking towards us, they all approached us from the water, they were walking on water (probably more figures but these are the ones I remember): a figure shaped as a human (man) but instead of having skin, it was the sky, blue and clouds with no face. And there was another figure, a black rock like earth man with moss growing from the cracks and looked wet like rainforest black rock and i remember being afraid of that one. My mom shook the sky mans hand, smiling, not scared at all while i ran back a little bc of the earth man, (he scared me for some reason, maybe bc he looked dark and scary) there was also an elephant (3rd figure) walking toward us with flowers and vines on him and butterflies flying around the flowers. They all left after a min of being there , as if they just wanted to show us their presence. I look back at the back at the water and they were gone and as soon as they left , i remember someone saying “no one’s gonna believe us” those words felt so weird bc this was really someone unbelievable.. We look up tje bible verse on the beach and i remember the number 5 but i don’t remember the verse. I started crying bc i was in disbelief and happy and sorry that i could ever doubt God, as if i knew for sure this was him. And then i woke up…

    I dreamed that I was standing beside a church. Only that I see was a church and a wall and I was standing beside it. I saw that a shining spark/ maybe star getting inside a church. After the spark, I saw a man getting out and I just knew it was God followed by the people inside the church. I just have looked at him and it looks like that he doesn’t see me. They were just walking on the other side of the way and I’m on my side. Does it mean that I am getting away from him? Does it mean that I need to pray?

  3. Last night i saw god holding the hand of one of his angels looking at me while they walked past me once i saw him i imediatley woke up. Please i NEED to know what this neans.

    I had a dream that I was looking for god and there was a whole bunch of people just walking. I could see their face but I didn’t know who any of them were and someone was with me, but I have no idea who that was. I came to a man who looked normal and asked him if he was god. He didn’t say anything, but somehow I just knew it was him. I was about to talk to him, but that’s when I woke up.

  6. What’s the meaning of a dream featuring a false God? Where I was in the dream was a real chaos, creatures ruled the place and when we rebelled, we fought these creatures but when we were about to win… The sky opened, clearing the clouds and a godlike voice spoke to us, congratulating us and promising a land of paradise on earth. We soon got in a unusual plane, we were seated by eating habits, if you eat this you go left, if you eat that you go right, it looked like a maze inside that plane. We were being walked by God itself and I was the last one to seat so I talked to him, I felt something wasn’t right, so I wrote in a piece of paper what I though about him, that he was a false God, he laughed about it but I know I was right. We got to the end of the maze, I lied about what I eat so to get to the end of it and sat near other people. When we landed that was it. We had to survive by ourselves in this advanced civilization near seashore, where everyone was rich but us, and we were giving a deadline.
