What Seeing Eggs In Your Dreams Mean Biblically

A good number of people often dream about eggs. We've provided you with the biblical meaning of eggs in dreams from a Christian perspective.
Biblical Meaning Of Eggs In Dreams

One of the most frequent dream interpretation requests I have received happens to be about the meaning of eggs in dreams. 

Dreaming about eggs isn't something that happens to everyone. I've come to the understanding that these sort of dreams are often seen by a select few — often people who are destined for greatness. 

Luke 11:11-12 KJV
If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? [12] Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?

What does it mean when you dream about eggs? An egg in itself holds many secrets — very many deep secrets — most of which have not yet been unveiled to man. But let's trust the Holy Spirit to open up some of these secrets to us in this article. 

I believe that by the time you're done reading this dream interpretation article, you'll be able to gain insight into the meaning of your dreams about eggs. 

Spiritual Meaning Of Eggs

The egg happens to be the initial stage of life of most living things that inhabit the earth. Just as life begins in man from the embryo, in some other creatures that God created, life begins from an egg. The embryo is a lifeform in its early stage of growth, same with an egg. These two lifeforms often hold the blueprint of everything God purposed a creature to be on earth. 

An egg isn't just the source from which the wings, legs or hands of an organism is formed. Encapsulated within its shell is always the purpose, assignment and God-given destiny of that organism. 

Luke 11:12 KJV
Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?

At a glance on Luke 11:12, you can readily tell that an egg is a very valuable asset to God — it is literally one of the most valuable things He created. Just as a pregnant woman protects the unborn child in her womb, same way the mother hen protects her eggs — because they are her offsprings; they hold the very essence and purpose for which God created that lifeform to fulfil on earth. 

Isaiah 10:14 KJV
And my hand hath found as a nest the riches of the people: and as one gathereth eggs that are left, have I gathered all the earth; and there was none that moved the wing, or opened the mouth, or peeped.

Speaking from a spiritual standpoint, an egg can represent;

  • Destiny
  • Divine purpose
  • Talents 
  • Riches and wealth
  • Greatness
  • Prosperity
  • Fertility 
  • Productivity, and every good thing God gives to an individual before sending them into the world.

Jeremiah 1:5 KJV
Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

Meaning Of Eggs In Dreams

There can be both positive and negative sides to dreams about eggs. When the enemy is the source of an egg dream, we cannot attribute such a dream to anything good or great. An example of such dreams is seeing oneself eating an egg in a dream. 

Some of the questions of many who have come to me for dream interpretation concerning eggs tend to revolve around;

  • What does it mean to buy egg in the dream?
  • Meaning of selling eggs in the dream
  • Egg yolk dream meaning
  • Buying eggs in dream meaning
  • Dreaming of eggs hatching

Dreams about eggs that are from God do not come to just anyone. If you often see a positive dream about eggs, I can tell that you're a great person — you're someone who is destined for greatness, prominence and prosperity. Pay attention to such dreams, because God is trying to communicate something very important to you concerning your life, destiny and future. 

Jeremiah 17:11 NIV
Like a partridge that hatches eggs it did not lay are those who gain riches by unjust means. When their lives are half gone, their riches will desert them, and in the end they will prove to be fools.

There are people who have reportedly dreamed about someone stealing their eggs and running away with them. If you saw such a dream know it's time to rise and confront the enemy. Someone is trying to steal and divert your star, greatness or glory.  

1. Eggs In Dreams Mean Unrealised Potential

Some people are born blessed; they come with potentials that no man can have by their own power. These potentials are from God. 

Potentials are often talents and abilities that can be worked on and fine-tuned, resulting to a future success. 

Seeing an egg that belongs to you in a dream is God's way of telling you that He has given you great potentials. But these potentials may not be at their best just yet. The fact that they currently exist as unrealised potentials does not mean that they will not become useful in future. It is your responsibility to nurture, develop, fine-tune and develop these potentials to the stage they become useful — thereby making you the person God destined you to be. 

Potentials are the tools God gives people to help them fulfil destiny. Notice the condition of the egg you see in your dream — that will tell you whether you're properly handling your potentials or something is wrong with the way you're handling them.

2. Eggs In Dreams Represent A Budding Destiny

Destiny in its budding stage - destiny yet to be fulfilled. If you have recurring dreams about eggs, God is showing you that He has given you a great destiny to nurture and bring to fruition. 

It is needful you notice the condition of the egg in your dream — whether they are in a good state or not. It is your responsibility to ensure you safeguard your purpose and destiny. Give no room for anything or anyone to destroy your divinely ordained destiny before its hatching season. Also do not be hasty to get to where God wants you to be — don't destroy the egg before it gets to its hatching stage. 

Biblical Meaning Of Broken Eggs In A Dream

If a person happens to see their eggs broken in a dream, this portends a direct spiritual attack against their destiny. The enemy does not want the dreamer to reach that place of full-blown manifestion of their God-given destiny, so he attacks every progress they make towards actualizing their goals and purpose in life

This dream can also mean that the dreamer has not been diligent enough with the potential or purpose which God has given them, thereby jeopardising it. But God is a restorer. He reverts the works of the enemy and restores to us what the devil steals from us if we ask Him. 

Meaning Of Receiving Eggs In The Dream

When you dream of receiving eggs, this can simply be wealth, financial breakthrough or an open door that is meant to bring you closer to your destiny. Whenever you see such dreams, do not only rejoice but also pray to protect (from the enemy) what God has given or is about to give to you. 

Picking Eggs In Dreams

Dreams about picking eggs always come as indication of a coming blessing or breakthrough. Sometimes, such dreams tell that the dreamer has or is about to discover some hidden potentials or their purpose in life. 

Dreaming Of Eggs Hatching

Dreams of eggs hatching are always a sign that the dreamer is close to the full-fledged manifestion of their destiny and purpose on earth. 

Ecclesiastes 3:1 KJV
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. 

If you see such a dream, rejoice! For your time has come and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. 

Eating Egg In The Dream

Eating egg in dreams is yet another deadly spiritual attack from the enemy. This is often a form of bewitching, spiritual pollution and contamination meant to mar the dreamer's progress towards their destiny or prevent a coming breakthrough. 

If you happen to see this dream, it is time to rise and pray. Use your authority in Jesus Christ to destroy the works of darkness against your life. Understand that every form of eating in the dream is always a bad omen. Pray that such dreams do not repeat themselves and pray for the ability to reject food in your dreams

Breaking Eggs Spiritual Meaning

This dreams often points to carelessness on the part of the dreamer towards their destiny, purpose and the potential which God has given to them. 

Certain bad choices people make can become the barrier to the manifestion of God's promises and the prophecy upon their life. Our responsibility is to cooperate with God and work towards becoming who He destined us to be. It is unwise to mar our own progress. 

Prayer Against Broken Eggs In The Dream

Dreams about broken eggs can be an attack from the enemy against our glory, purpose, destiny or potential. This dream can also come as a result of our disobedience towards God or bad choices we make which can divert what God has planned for us. 

If you saw this type of dream and you know that the fault is from you, the first thing to do is to confess your faults to God and ask for His forgiveness. 

If you sense that this dream came as a result of the enemy's attack against you, then go ahead and pray accordingly:

  1. By the authority of Jesus Christ, I come against every manipulation of the enemy against my destiny. I command them to be frustrated, in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ.
  2. Every power of darkness attacking my glory and rising, be destroyed by the power of God, in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ! 
  3. Let Heaven's army arise and arrest every agent of darkness assigned to mar every step I make towards by destiny, in the Name of Jesus Christ! 
  4. Every spiritual thief assigned to steal my glory and divert my destiny, be arrested in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ! 
  5. I frustrate the assignment of all forces of darkness assigned to destroy my potential before its actualisation, in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ! 
  6. Demonic forces of delay assigned against my destiny, your assignment is aborted now, in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ! 
  7. Foundational powers risen against my purpose to prevent me from fulfilling it, be destroyed in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ! 
  8. I decree and declare that no power of hell shall stop my rising. I shall rise to walk in the fullness of all that Heaven destined me to be, in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ! 

Beloved, feel free to add your own prayer points and pray as led. If you see recurring dreams about your eggs getting stolen or broken, you need to focus and pray more (alongside fasting) till this dream stops repeating itself.
