Dreams about money are very common dream—both among Christians and non-Christians. Almost everyone have seen different dreams concerning money. For some people, these dreams happen to be recurring. Some money dreams can be very strange, and people often wake up confused concerning what it means.

For proper understanding of the meaning of money in dreams, we will talk about the following:

  • Fake money dream meaning
  • Receiving money in dream
  • Dream of money given to me
  • Dream about money notes
  • Dream of losing money
  • Dream of finding money

Money dreams can either be a good or bad omen. This largely depends on so many factors and symbols within the dream. I believe that everyone knows how important money is. That is the same way we should treat every money dream we see—as equally important!

What is the dream interpretation of receiving money? Receiving money in a dream can either symbolize a financial blessing from God or a spiritual attack from the enemy against the dreamer's finances. I'll explain as we progress. 

What Does Money Mean In A Dream


Money is needed for our daily upkeep. It is believed that money makes the world go around. If you look at the basic needs of man (food, clothing, shelter, etc) you will notice that none of these can be acquired without money. Even the Bible acknowledges the power of money:

Ecclesiastes 10:19 KJV 
A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things. 

In our world today, even a 3-year-old knows how important money is. Literally no one on earth can survive and have a good living without adequate funds. Inasmuch as money is this important, we should also understand that money dreams are likewise very important.

Each time you see a dream about money, you should pay keen attention it. Don't slide it under the carpet thinking it's just a dream, because most of these dreams are serious revelations concerning your finances status. 

I believe every money dream often has something important to communicate about the dreamer's financial state. A positive money dream has the power to change a person's financial state for good. While a negative money dream can negatively impact a person's finances. 

Biblical Meaning Of Finding Money In A Dream


I've heard people say that money is the root of all evil. But that is contrary to what the Bible says. The particular Bible verse they are trying to quote is 1 Timothy 6:10, but it never said money is the root of evil. Instead, it said that “the love of money is the root of all evil.”

In other words, there are greedy people who would do just anything at all to get money—be it good or evil. It is greed that is being reproved here, not money itself.

Therefore, money is not evil, but greed is. We must understand that it is the will of God that His sons of daughters have money. God is not against money. Most times, God's provision for us will come in form of money. This is because He knows that wih money we can get anything we want to better our life on earth. We still need money to carryout Heaven's assignment given to us to fulfil on earth.

So it's a settled fact that everyone needs money. God has money and God gives money. 

Haggai 2:8 KJV
The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the Lord of hosts. 

God is not poor, and it is not His will that we live in abject poverty. God wants every Christian to have money. The actual person who doesn't want that for us Satan.

When God blesses us financially, the enemy becomes envious, because He knows that with finances, we can achieve a lot for the kingdom of God on earth. The enemy fights hard to rob believers of their finances, and prevent their financial prosperity.

John 10:10 KJV
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. 

That being said, a dream about finding money could either be a good or bad omen. Such dreams can either come from God or the enemy. A good dream from God about finding money can lead to one's financial breakthrough. A bad dream from the enemy about finding money could end up being a spiritual attack against the dreamer's finances.

We must always be discerning to know the source of our dreams about finding money, so that we will know how to pray concerning it. 


  • Dreams about finding money on the ground
  • Dream of finding money in an envelope
  • Dream of finding money on the beach
  • Dream of finding torn and dirty money

Some of these dreams are good and some are not so good. For instance, a dream of finding money in an envelope points to a coming financial breakthrough. While a dream of finding money on the ground could possibly be a financial attack dream from the enemy against the dreamer. 

Dream Of Picking Up Money Spiritual Meaning


There are many people out there who see themselves picking up money in dreams. If you're one of them, read on because there are very important things I want you to understand concerning this dream

Firstly, in most dreams about picking money, it often happens that the money that is being picked is picked from the ground. In many African cultures, money is often dropped on the ground for masquerades, and masquerades have a correlation with the demonic.

I'm saying this because some are often quick to believe their dream is from God whenever they find themselves picking up money in the dream. 

I see no reason why God would choose to drop money on the ground or strange places in dreams for people to pick them up, if truly He wanted blessing them. If there is a financial blessing coming for the dreamer, and God chooses to reveal to them in a dream, there are better ways He will show it to the dreamer.

Most dreams of picking up money are forms of spiritual manipulation by the kingdom of darkness against the dreamer's finances. Money picked from the ground, even in waking life, is never a blessing from God. 

Dreams About Receiving Money


To dream about receiving money or receiving a check with a good amount of money from someone is often a good omen. Although in such dreams, it is important to notice the quality of money that was given. Receiving torn or dirty money in the dream always turns out to be an attack from the enemy. 

It is also necessary to notice the feeling that came with the dream. Were you happy receiving the money or did you feel like something wasn't right about the whole dream? This can go a long way to determine whether that dream was from God or not. 

If the giver appeared to be a good person or someone good that you know, then it is likely a good dream. Also, if you felt happy and peaceful about your dream, pray and be expectant of financial breakthrough. 

Receiving Torn or Dirty Money In Dream


A dream about receiving torn and dirty money is always a bad omen. This dream often shows that there is a serious spiritual attack against the dreamer's finances. 

Most of those who see such dreams always experience terrible financial lack in their waking life. The first step towards gaining your deliverance from this is understanding that this is not a good dream. Then go on to pray that it stops. 

Were you able to recognize the face of the person who gave you the money? If yes, then there is need to be careful with that individual when it comes to your finances getting into their hands. Remember, the Lord instructed us to be as wise as serpents and innocent as doves (Matthew 10:16). 

Receiving Fake Money In A Dream


This has a meaning that is very similar to the torn or dirty money dream. The enemy is after the dreamer's finances to steal it. It is a serious spiritual attack against finances that must be prayed off. 

Someone Receiving Money on Your Behalf 


If you saw a dream where you were about to be given a good amount of money, but someone else bypassed you to take the money on your behalf, it is a bad omen. This dream is a subtle but deadly spiritual attack against the dreamer's finances. It is the enemy's financial barrier placed on the dreamer's path to financial breakthrough and freedom. 

Dream Of Losing Money, Then Finding It


If you saw a dream where you found you long lost money, this symbolizes spiritual recovery. Obviously, your finances have been under attack in the past and you've been praying concerning it. This dream is evidence that your prayers are effective

Dreams of losing money, then finding it often confirms that God has risen on the dreamer's behalf to contend with the attacker of their finances. There is financial recovering and the dreamer should begin to experience financial breakthrough in their waking life. 

Dream of Giving Money To Someone


Be careful about giving out money in dreams. If possible, always refuse giving out money to people in your dreams. 

If you are a giver, the enemy will likely attempt to use that virtue against you in dreams. If someone shows up in your dream askimg for money, there is no way you can verify whether or not they are human. It is safe not to give, even if they are someone you know in waking life. 

Dreaming about giving out money (to whoever they may be) is rarely a good omen. The enemy has demons specialized in stealing [spiritually] the finances of Believers through such dreams. Let's not forget that stealing is one of his assignments—according to John 10:10. Let's not be ignorant of his devices. 

The enemy does not want to see any Christian having money, because he knows that in one way or another, they will use it to advance the Kingdom of God. When one sees such dreams, they must understand that their finances are under attack. It is unwise to write it off as 'just a dream.'

Same is applicable to dreams about being tricked into giving out money to someone. Another instance is seeing oneself spending too much money in the dream, in a way that feels like a waste.

If you've been seeing yourself giving out money in dreams, you're not doing anyone a favour. Rather, it is the enemy draining your finances spiritually. Pray that you stop seeing such dreams, and pray to recover your finances which the enemy has stolen from you. 

Lending Money Dream Meaning


It is a bad omen to lend money in dreams, as the dreamer cannot readily verify if the person they gave their money to in the dream is a human or a demon. 

This dream is just one of those demonic manipulation dreams against a person's finances. 

Dream Of Money Deposited In My Account


In most cases, a dream of money deposited in one's account symbolizes a coming financial breakthrough. 

If the dreamer is a child of God, and has no financial deal with Satan, then this dream is definitely from God. If you saw this dream, pray and agree with God for this breakthrough to manifest in your life. 

Dream Of Stealing Money


If you saw yourself stealing money in a dream, this often points to impatience and greed on the part of the dreamer. This is God is letting the dreamer see that they are too desperate to make money by any means, instead of having faith in God and working hard, while patiently waiting for their time to come. 

Proverbs 13:11 NIV
Dishonest money dwindles away, but whoever gathers money little by little makes it grow.

It is also obvious that if someone steals money in the dream, they can do it in waking life. Such dreams often reveal what is in our heart. The dreamer should do away with desperation for quick money. 

Prayer Points Against Negative Money Dreams


  1. By the authority of Jesus Christ I come against and cancel every plot of the enemy against my finances. 
  2. By the power of the Holy Ghost, I break every chain of darkness tying down my finances in Jesus Mighty Name! 
  3. I break every luggage of darkness keeping and concealing my finances from my reach in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ. 
  4. By the power of the Holy Ghost I come against and destroy every Satanic barrier put up against my finances in the Name of Jesus Christ. 
  5. I tear down every demonic hindrance to my financial breakthrough, in the Name of Jesus Christ! 
  6. I frustrate and abort the assignment of every agent of darkness assigned to steal my finances in the Mighty Name of Jesus! 
  7. I cover my finances with the Blood of Jesus Christ. The enemy shall not be able to touch it. Amen!
  8. I stand in agreement with the Lord and receive my coming financial breakthrough. Let it manifest in my life, in the Name of Jesus Christ! 
  9. From now henceforth, the enemy shall not be able to touch my money, in the Name of Jesus Christ! 
  10. Thank You Father for the financial blessings. I receive them now, in the Name of Jesus Christ!
