Dream Of Being Chased And Hiding Biblical Meaning

Some people repeatedly see dream of being chased, running and hiding. Read this article to understand the biblical meaning of dream of being chased.
One of the scary dreams that people see is a dream of being chased. If you saw yourself chased in a dream, you probably have many questions. 

Questions like why you got chased in a dream in the first place, is one of those many questions that bug the mind of the dreamer, whenever they see a dream about being chased and hiding. 

Dream Of Being Chased And Hiding Biblical Meaning

It is true that getting chased in a dream may leave the dreamer baffled. But let me start by letting you know that such dreams don't just show up for no reason. There is always a spiritual source behind a dream of being chased. 

Psalm 45:3 BSB
Draw the spear and javelin against my pursuers; say to my soul: “I am your salvation.”

According to the above scripture, we know that the pursuers of David were not his friends; they didn't seek his wellbeing by pursuing him. They sought after his destruction, that's why he cried out to the Lord for help. 

Many have reported that the individual who chased them in the dream did so with the intention of harming them. So there's no way this dream came from God. 

A dream of being chased is not a good omen, it's always an attack from the enemy. People have reported about dreaming of being chased by a killer. It is the enemy who has and carries out the assignment of stealing, killing and destroying (John 10:10). 

Dream Of Being Chased By A Stranger


That said, if you found yourself being chased by a stranger in the dream, recognize that you're under a serious spiritual attack. 

Psalms 56:1-13 CEV
Have pity, God Most High! My enemies chase me all day. Many of them are pursuing and attacking me, but even when I am afraid, I keep on trusting you. I praise your promises!

A dream of being chased often depicts there is an ongoing attack of darkness carried out against the dreamer. 

Even in the physical world, if you found yourself alone on a street, and suddenly someone starts chasing after you, the first thought that would occur to you is that the person doesn't mean you well. Same applies in a dream

Therefore, when you find yourself getting chased by a stranger in a dream, understand that the enemy has an evil plot. Start praying to foil the plots of the wicked one. 

Dreams About Being Chased By A Killer


If you saw in a dream that you were chased by a killer, that is a direct manifestion of a desperate attack of the enemy against you. The enemy is desperate to destroy the dreamer by every possible means, and he's furious about not being able to carry it out with ease. 

Psalm 71:10-11 NIV
For my enemies speak against me; those who wait to kill me conspire together. They say, “God has forsaken him; pursue him and seize him, for no one will rescue him.” 

In most cases where one may see a killer chasing them in a dream, that killer is not human but a demon assigned from the pit of Hell to terminate their life. 

But are people (including Christians) just supposed to run and hide from attackers in their dreams? I'm sure God doesn't encourage that attitude. 

The Bible tells us that the wicked runs when no one is pursing, but the righteous is as bold as a lion (Proverbs 28:1). The more people keep running from their attackers in dreams, the more such dream attacks will show up. 

If you're one of those who always get chased in the dream and all that you do is run away, I'll say that's not a good thing. You should equip yourself to confront your enemies in the dream. 

Satan uses fear as a tool against people. The more people become scared of his attacks, the more he'll intensify his attacks against them. 

Do not let the enemy have his field day in your life. Start praying, asking God to Anoint and equip you to pursue your pursuers. 

Dreams About Escaping And Running Away From Someone


If you got arrested in a dream, it is a good thing if you were able to escape their arrest and get away successfully. What's not okay is continually running in fear from everyone who attacks you in the dream. 

We know that power belongs to God (Psalm 62:11), and as the children of God, we shouldn’t fear evil, knowing we have the most powerful Father. Evil should be scared and run away from us instead. 

Prayer Against Evil Pursuers In Dreams 


  1. Heavenly Father, I ask that You would arise on my behalf and pursue my pursuers. 
  2. Let those that pursue me in order to see my downfall be disgraced. 
  3. O God! Arise and fight my battles. Let those that seek my life be utterly destroyed. 
  4. Mighty Angels of God, locate and arrest every Satanic pursuer assigned against my life. 
  5. By the power of God, I thwart every plot of the enemy against my will life, that is manifest in the dream of being chased. 
  6. Let every evil pursuer be arrested. In the Name of Jesus Christ. 
  7. Powers of darkness bent on destroying my life, be destroyed! In the Name of Jesus Christ. 
  8. I receive power to confront, fight and defeat my pursers. 
  9. From today onwards, my pursuers shall become my victim. In the Name of Jesus. 
  10. I shall live and make progress, against the wishes of evil pursuers. In the Name of Jesus Christ. 

Final Thoughts On Dream Of Being Chased


It is not the will of God that a Christian tugs their tail in fear like a fearful dog, and run away from their enemy whenever you get attacked in their dreams. 

Psalm 18:37
I pursued my enemies and overtook them; I did not turn back till they were destroyed.

The Psalmist repeatedly said the he had many enemies who pursued and sought after his life. At the same time, he also said that he pursued his enemies and overtook them.

If you truly know you are in Christ, you wouldn't continue running from your enemies in the dream. God wants to empower you to confront and defeat them. Ask Him to do just that.
