The sleep state was designed to be a period of rest, but sometimes, certain dreams can make people stay up, confused about what's going on in their life. One of such dreams is a dream about shoes.
Dreams concerning shoes come in different forms. And knowing that there are many out there searching for an accurate biblical interpretation for this dream, I decided to put together this article. So join us today as we explore the biblical meaning of shoes in dreams.
I understand that seeing shoes in a dream can leave one worried—especially when the shoes are not in good condition. Besides, the more these dreams repeat themselves, the more disturbing they can become. When this happens, the dreamer must treat it very seriously!
Joshua 9:5 KJVAnd old shoes and clouted upon their feet, and old garments upon them; and all the bread of their provision was dry and mouldy.
If you're one of those who frequently see dreams about shoes but do not know what they mean, I believe this dream interpretation is for you. If you just woke up from dreaming about shoes and found this article, I believe you're in the right place to gain understanding concerning your dream. Follow up as we rely on the Spirit of God to bring understanding to this dream.
Our dream interpretation will be based on some of the following:
- New shoes dream meaning
- Receiving shoes dream meaning
- Prophetic meaning of white shoes
- Biblical meaning of black shoes in a dream
- Biblical meaning of red shoes in a dream
- Buying shoes dream meaning
Every dream about shoes has a lot to say concerning the dreamer. If you happen to see any dream concerning shoes that belonged to you, do not take it lightly because there is something very important that is revealed concerning your life within that dream.
What do shoes symbolize in a dream? A shoe dream can either be a good or bad men, depending on certain symbols within the dream: like the quality and appearance of the shoes. In most cases, shoes in dreams speak of one's progress through life or their relationship and marital life.
Shoes Dream Meaning
Shoes were invented mainly for the purpose of covering and protecting the feet. But overtime, shoes have become part and parcel of fashion. We now have many grades and designs of shoes.
You'll agree with me that it doesn't look nice when someone goes around without shoes. Parents can not take their kids out without putting nice shoes in them. The parents as well wouldn't like to wear shoes that could make them the center of attention in a bad way.
In the physical world, the kind of shoes that a person wears can readily reveal a lot about them—especially whether they are poor or rich.
Amos 8:6 KJVThat we may buy the poor for silver, and the needy for a pair of shoes; yea, and sell the refuse of the wheat?
It is not surprising that in our world today, people rate others based on the price and look of the shoes they wear.
Shoes can improve or mar a person's look. The kind of shoes that someone wears can either bring them glory or shame. Whether the shoes fit or not; whether they are nice or not, has a lot to say about the one who wears them. If someone wears old and torn shoes, others can readily tell that things are not right with that person.
We can as well safely apply this to our dream interpretation. As earlier stated, shoes in dreams speak directly concerning the dreamer. The kind of shoes people find themselves wearing in a dream goes a long way to reveal many things happening in their life (both physically and spiritually).
Without shoes it is difficult for anyone to travel a long distance. Therefore, shoes in dreams speak about a person's progress through the path of life.
Meaning Of Shoes In A Dream
To be more specific, shoes in dreams represent the following:
- The dreamer's future and destiny
- A person's purpose in life
- The dreamer's progress through life
- The current state the dreamer's relationship and marriage
- Whether the dreamer is in the right relationship or not, etc.
Many people wake up from a dream where they saw theirself wearing dirty and old shoes, and begin to wonder what it could mean. Possibilities are that they are in a relationship that is not working or they oustayed their welcome in a particular connection.
Isaiah 5:27 KJVNone shall be weary nor stumble among them; none shall slumber nor sleep; neither shall the girdle of their loins be loosed, nor the latchet of their shoes be broken.
For better understanding, we will touch more on this as we progress.
Biblical Meaning Of Shoes In A Dream
From a biblical standpoint, shoes can as well have a lot to say about a person's place of authority. Recall what the testimony of John the Baptist concerning our Jesus Christ was:
John 1:27 KJVHe it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.
John found himself unworthy to unloose the Master's shoes latchet because they're both not on the same level of authority. You don't touch the King's shoes except you're permitted to. That is why if someone gives you their shoes in a dream, it symbolizes a transference of authority, power, a mantle or responsibility.
If you found yourself wearing shoes in a dream, you must have noticed the condition of those shoes. Shoes that are in a bad state portray the enemy's attacks against the dreamer's God-given purpose.
Some people find themselves wearing torn or broken shoes with which they could not walk comfortably. This dream symbolizes a serious spiritual attack against the dreamer's progress in life. It is evident that the enemy does not want them to reach and walk in their God-given destiny.
Spiritual Meaning Of Shoes In A Dream
Shoes equip us to tread rough terrains and all manner of harsh landscapes. Without the right kind of shoes, we're going to experience problems on our way.
We're often asked to “put ourselves in other people's shoes.” Basically, what this means is for an individual to try putting aside their own view concerning a matter for a while, and then try to see from the other person's perspective. The process involves imagining oneself as being the other person, and then making deductions and conclusions from that place. The end result is suppose to bring agreement and peace between both parties—not disparity. But this is one thing that is lacking in many relationships.
Shoes in dreams go a long way to reveal whether a person is experiencing peace in their relationship or not. The condition of the shoes in a dream has a lot to say about an existing peace (or lack thereof) in any form of connection or relationship.
One might see a dream about wearing bad shoes if they are in a relationship where they are not seeing eye-to-eye with each other. It is not strange to see such dreams if a relationship is filled with misunderstandings and fights.
Were the shoes in your dream giving you problems? Did they look old and dirty? Then you need to consider how your relationship or marriage has been of recent. It's common for people to see dreams of wearing bad shoes when they are currently going through problems in their marriage.
If you're frequently seeing these dreams, it's possible that your relationship isn't the way it is supposed to be, but God can turn things around if you pray.
New Shoes Dream Meaning
Owning or wearing new shoes in dreams often point to present or future success in marriage. This dream can as well reveal that you are currently in a relationship with the right person and you both will enjoy a blissful marriage in future.
Buying New Shoes Dream Meaning
Dreams of buying new shoes may show up if a person just got in a relationship with the right person or about to get married to the right one.
Losing shoes in dreams: If you see a dream where your shoes got stolen, this often points to a spiritual attack against one's progress, future and destiny. This dream could also speak of very serious problems concerning the dreamer's marital life.
Receiving Shoes Dream Meaning
The type of shoes we receive in a dream matters a lot. If the dreamer received new shoes, this is a good omen. Whereas, receiving old shoes in a dream may bring setbacks in the area of marriage.
Wearing Oversized Shoes In Dreams
Wearing shoes that do not fit in dreams often reveals that one is in the wrong relationship or connection with the wrong person. This dream can also mean that the dreamer is currently engaged in something they're not suppose to do. It could be a job, business or organisation. It is something not in God's plan for their life.
