People of all ages see dreams about eating on daily basis, but most of them end up baffled concerning what such dreams mean. If you're one of such people, I believe you're in the right place to gain spiritual understanding concerning your dream. Join us now, as we will learn the spiritual meaning of eating in the dream, from a Biblical standpoint. 

I presume that you just woke up from a dream where you saw yourself eating, then found this article. You may have wondered what it means and I believe that the Spirit of the Lord led you to this blog. So let's also trust Him to answer the many questions regarding your dream

Having received many dream interpretation requests concerning what it means to see oneself eating in the dream, I can say that dreams about eating come in various forms. 

In this article, we will look at the meaning of eating in dreams under some of the following subheadings:
  • Eating in the dream meaning
  • Spiritual meaning of eating in a dream
  • Seeing someone eating food in dream
  • Eating in a party dream meaning
  • Dream of eating with boyfriend
  • Dream of father eating food
  • Spiritual meaning of eating meat in the dream
I believe that each time people find themselves eating in the dream, there is always an impression that such is not a good dream. If you're one of those who frequently find theirself eating food in dreams, there's no need to fear. God has a solution to every negative dream you may see. 

Is eating in the dream bad ? The simplest answer is yes, it is bad. Although some people have turned dreams about eating into jokes and comedy, these dreams aren't funny at all! No one should desire to continually see them. 

Food In Dreams Biblical Meaning

Once again, let's be reminded that dreams come from three major sources—God, the human mind, and the enemy. There's a powerful Bible verse that talks about eating in the dream as follows:

Isaiah 29:8 ESV
And the multitude of all the nations that fight against Ariel, all that fight against her and her stronghold and distress her, shall be like a dream, a vision of the night. As when a hungry man dreams, and behold, he is eating, and awakes with his hunger not satisfied, or as when a thirsty man dreams, and behold, he is drinking, and awakes faint, with his thirst not quenched, so shall the multitude of all the nations be that fight against Mount Zion.

First of all, you would have noticed that those spoken of as “eating in the dream” in this scripture are not portrayed in a good light; likewise the act of eating in dreams itself. As you can see, that single Bible verse makes it obvious that eating in a dream is not a good omen. 

Most dreams about eating food do not come from God—they rarely come from Him. The two major sources that these dreams often stem from are the human mind and the enemy. 

When Eating In The Dream Comes From The Mind

Let's take for instance, you were observing a three-day dry fasting. It is believed that you're not supposed to eat until you're done with your fast. But during the day, the thought of eating keeps popping up in your mind. If by peradventure, you entertain and dwell on this thought, there's a great possibility that you'll find yourself eating in the dream when you sleep. 

Most times, eating in the dream comes as a result of daydreaming about eating food. This is why it is necessary we don't allow just any kind of thought to fill our minds during the day. If you crave a particular food during the day, make sure you can get and eat it before you sleep. 

If you know that you can't readily get a particular food, then you shouldn't crave it while awake, because the enemy might use that against you when you sleep. 

When Eating In The Dream Comes From The Enemy 

The kingdom of darkness also is another source of most dreams about eating. The enemy uses this as one of his favourite weapons against the child of God. 

Some Christians are powerfully Anointed; for this reason, they have become a pain in the neck of the devil and his cohorts. The Kingdom of darkness will go extra mile, just to put these people in check. One way they will try to achieve this is by feeding the Christian spiritual poison in their dreams. 

There are many who often see themselves eating their favourite food in the dream, thinking nothing will happen. But that isn't often the case. One may not see the physical effects of eating in the dream, but the negative spiritual effects are always there. 

Do you ever wonder why some people who were once on fire for God gradually become lukewarm? One of goals that the enemy plans to achieve through such dreams, is weakening his target spiritually. 

I've heard many people make fun of themselves eating in the dream, but this dream is not funny. This is because, what people get fed in their dreams isn't actually food but spiritual poison that kills slowly. When I talk of killing the dreamer slowly, I mean the following:

  1. Eating in dreams makes the dreamer gradually become less spiritual and more carnal
  2. Eating in dreams can cause illnesses
  3. It can bring about setbacks, stagnation and poverty
  4. It can bring about disappointments
  5. It can reduce the dreamer's ability to prosper and be productive
  6. It becomes hindrances to the dreamer's breakthrough, etc. 

Now you understand that this is a very strategic spiritual attack from the kingdom of darkness, especially against Christians—since he sees them as a threat to his works. This clearly isn't a dream we should allow to continue. 

Again, let me emphasize on this: one major reason why the enemy uses this weapon against the people of God is to weaken them spiritually, so as to be able to launch more severe attacks against them. 

Eating in the dream is a common but subtle spiritual attack from the kingdom of darkness against the innocent. Feeding their target spiritual poison is a common weapon witches and warlocks use against people they want to oppress and possibly destroy. 

One of the major reason why the kingdom of darkness uses this weapon is to wreck havoc in the life of their target. Their intent is either to limit the Anointing upon the Believer, induce sickness or cause all sorts of mishaps in the dreamer's waking life. 

If the spiritual potency of a Christian is reduced, the enemy is at advantage, because he then can launch more offensive attacks against them.
Isaiah 54:17 KJV 
No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord , and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord. 

The good news is that, our Lord Jesus Christ has endowed Christians with spiritual immunity against the works of the enemy. But we must be discerning; we must stay prayed up and glued to God, knowing that the enemy will always look for a back door to get to us. 

Whenever you find yourself eating in the dream, always try to wake up immediately and pray to destroy whatever the enemy has deposited in you. 

Remember that, we have the authority and power through Jesus Christ to destroy the works of darkness against us (Luke 10:19).

How To Stop Eating In The Dream

I have noticed that one of the dreams that people complain about the most is a dream about eating food. These dreams are truly a nuisance to many out there. Dreams about eating are fashioned to;

  • Frustrate spiritual growth
  • Cause sicknesses
  • Prevent breakthrough
  • Put the dreamer in spiritual bondage 
  • Prevent the dreamer's progress
  • Weaken the dreamer spiritually
  • Make the dreamer susceptible to more severe spiritual attacks, etc. 

But it is not enough to just complain about them, we must also take the necessary steps to stop these dreams from continuing. Firstly, we must understand how deadly these dreams can be. I believe that is the first step to overcoming them. With this knowledge, go ahead to do all that is required of you to prevent this dream from persisting

There are people who find themselves eating in their dreams even more frequently, the moment they start praying against such dreams. If this is you, then don't be discouraged. This is just a reprisal attack meant to discourage you from laying hold of your deliverance, so keep on praying even more! 

Christians who often sees themselves frequently eating in dreams should understand that it could as well be sign of spiritual weakness. How spiritual and how prayerful have you been? If you have been slacking spiritually, it is time to step up your spiritual life. 

Take the following steps concerning dreams about eating:

  • Whenever you find yourself eating in dream, wake up and place your right hand on your tummy, then begin to pray, calling the fire of God to consume and render of no effect whatever the enemy may have fed you in your dream
  • Pray to cancel everything the enemy intends to achieve against you and your destiny through such dreams. 
  • Stay filled with the Holy Spirit. Most times the kingdom of darkness are able to successfully attack a Christian because they are not filled with the Holy Spirit, hence there is no equivalent spiritual resistance against them. 
  • Always pray effectively and ask for God's protection upon you before going to bed. 
  • Break the chain of recurring eating dreams off your life, using the Authority you have in Christ. 
  • Declare over your life, spiritual resistance by the power of the Holy Spirit against eating in dreams. This will cause you to reject food in dreams. 
  • Stay on fire for God. Flies don't perch on a hot but cold surface, remember that.
