Biblical Meaning Of Stealing Money In A Dream

If you saw that you stole money in a dream, you may have many questions regarding that dream. Here is the biblical meaning of stealing money in dreams
Dreams of money often come in different forms. A dream of stealing money may come off as very strange. It's actually one of the strangest dreams that people see. In this article, we will talk about the biblical meaning of stealing money in a dream. 

Probably you saw yourself stealing money in a dream (even though you don't do that in waking life). This dream must have left you with many questions. Anyone who isn't a thief would wonder why they saw themselves stealing money in a dream—it's expected. 

People see different dreams of stealing money. They include;

  • Dream about stealing money from bank
  • Dream about stealing from someone
  • Dream about stealing money from a friend
  • Dream about stealing from a store

A dream of stealing money is never a good omen. They also rarely come from God. If a dream of stealing money comes from God, it will come as a warning dream. 

1 Timothy 6:10 NKJV
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

A dream of stealing money also rarely comes from the enemy. It is true that the devil may lure people into doing bad things in waking life. But most crimes that people commit came out from their own will. Most of those who blame the devil after getting caught in a crime often lie about that. 

Biblical Meaning Of Stealing Money In A Dream

That said, stealing money in a dream is no way different. We cannot blame the devil for everything. The dreamer may not be a thief in waking life, and stealing money in a dream doesn't make them a thief either. But that dream does have something very important to reveal to and about them. Stay with me. I'll explain. 

Spiritual Meaning Of Stealing Money In A Dream

We know that the Bible warns us severally against stealing. One thing I've discovered is that, if people obey the word of God in waking life, they will do likewise in their dreams

Ephesians 4:28 ESV
Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need.

But because dreams deal directly with a man soul, people's hidden thoughts and intentions are often revealed through them.

If you found yourself stealing money in the dream, your dream could mean the following:

1. God Is Revealing The Dreamer’s Impatience

God sure has great plans for us. One of those plans is to prosper us financially (3 John 1:2). But God has His set time when He makes His promises come to pass in our lives. 

Our responsibility is to patiently wait for God to make His Word come to pass in our lives. But if a person is hasty in their efforts to make money, this may manifest as a dream of stealing money. 

If you happened to see this dream, take it as a warning from God. Stop trying to run faster than God, He will do what He said at His appointed time. 

2. God Is Warning The Dreamer Against Cutting Corners

Out of desperation to make money, some people wouldn't mind taking shortcuts to acquire wealth. Shortcuts to wealth often end up being to wrong path to making wealth, it may even lead to untimely death. 

It is true that many don't mind obtaining money through dubious and fraudulent ways. They just want to make money! But remember, God never stopped being against ill-gotten wealth. 

Proverbs 10:2 
Ill-gotten treasures have no lasting value, but righteousness delivers from death.

If you see a dream of stealing money, God is warning you not to venture into the wrong path simply because you want to be rich. Get rid of the longing to make money by all means. 

3. The Dreamer Lacks Contentment

Like I earlier said, dreams have a way of revealing the hidden thoughts and motives of a man's heart. A dream of stealing money may simply reveal that the dreamer lacks contentment. The dreamer should take that as a warning from God and learn to be contented with what God has given them. 

4. There's The Tendency To Actually Steal 

A dream of stealing money may literally reveal that there are thoughts and the tendency to steal, hidden deep in the heart of the dreamer. 

If you woke up from a dream where you stole money, instead of trying to justify yourself because you think you wouldn't steal in waking life, why not just say a prayer of repentance? 

God knows our hearts more than we do. If you could have the willpower to steal in a dream, then it wasn't a mistake. You did it conspicuously. Repent and ask God to forgive your desperation and impatience. 

Ask the Lord to cleanse your heart from every evil thought that is unlike Him. 

Dreams About Stealing Money And Getting Caught

A dream of stealing money and getting caught is a warning dream. God is warning the dreamer to avoid shortcuts to prosperity in life, because if they don't they will get themselves in trouble.

Final Thoughts On Stealing Money In A Dream

From all that you have read so far, you can see that stealing money in a dream is not a good omen. Such dreams often reveal that people have sinful and evil thoughts in their hearts that they may not be aware of. 

Every dream of stealing money calls for repentance. Tell God that you will learn to be patient and wait for Him to fulfil His promises concerning your life.

I trust that by reading this interpretation, you understood the biblical meaning of stealing money in a dream.

God bless you.
