Drinking Water In A Dream Biblical Meaning

If you have been finding yourself drinking water in a dream, your dream can mean many things. Here is the biblical meaning of drinking water in dream
Dreams of drinking water tend to be one of the rarest dreams out there. Not many people have reached out to me, asking to know the meaning of drinking water in a dream. But for those who have seen this dream and keep seeing it, this dream interpretation is for you. 

Dreams of drinking water come in diverse forms to different people. People have seen... 

  • Dreams of someone giving them water to drink
  • Dream of drinking water from a bottle
  • Dream of drinking dirty water 
  • Dream of drinking water but still thirsty, etc. 

No doubt that in the holy scriptures, water often means something positive. For instance, our Lord Jesus talks about giving us water that wells up to eternal life (John 4:14).

Drinking Water In A Dream Biblical Meaning

Water itself is a powerful element found on the earth. Water quenches thirst, nourishes and brings death things back to life. Water washes and purifies. 

Psalm 65:9-10
You visit the earth and water it, abundantly enriching it. You provide its canals with water, you level its furrows and soften its lumps, you water it with rain and bless its crops.

But even in the physical world, there are many kinds of water. Certain kinds of water may be perfect for watering our plants, but not fit for drinking. Drinking the wrong kind of water can turn out to be a disaster instead of a blessing. 

Although water is portrayed in a good light throughout the holy scriptures, people know that they can't fetch water just from any source at all to cook their food or to drink.

The water you may find in your dream isn't any way different. Also, the source of water in your dream will determine whether your dream is a good or bad omen. 

There are people who find themselves taking and drinking water from strange hands. Some find themselves drinking dirty water in a dream. Others find out that the container they are drinking the water from isn't in a good state. These are obviously not good dreams of drinking water. 

That said, most dreams of drinking water are not a good omen. 

Dream Meaning Of Drinking Water


The source of water which the dreamer drinks in their dream matters a lot. In the physical world, people are always cautious not to eat or drink from just anyone. People often watch against food poisoning or poisoning through drinks. The case shouldn't be different when it comes to drinking water in dreams. 

Our Lord Jesus mentioned giving us water to drink, which is His Word and the Holy Spirit. These two give us life, makes us spiritually alive and sound. 

John 7:37-38
On the last day of the great festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, 'Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them. 

Jesus wouldn't give anyone water that would cause problems to them spiritually, but the enemy does that. This is why I will always discourage accepting and drinking water in dreams

Except you had a direct encounter with the Lord Jesus in your dream and He gave you water to drink, it is risky to accept drinking water from people in your dreams and go on to drink it. 

The enemy carries out spiritual poisoning in various ways through dreams. If it's not through eating in the dream, it's going to be through drinking in a dream. Every dreamer should take heed. 

Dream Of Drinking Water From A Cup


Drinking water from a cup that you fetched by yourself can be rejuvenating. Such dreams of drinking water are often safer. 

Proverbs 25:25
Like cold water to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.

A dream of drinking clean water (that you got by yourself) from a cup, is a good omen. Such a dream often symbolizes the dreamer’s need for inner cleaning—since water cleanses. It could also mean that God is currently doing a sanctification work on you. Thank Him for it! 

Dream Meaning Of Drinking Water In The House


If you dreamt about yourself drinking your own water from your home, you are on the safer side. So long that water was pure, you are good! But if there were impurities in the water, that's not a good omen. 

Dreaming About Drinking Water But Still Thirsty


There are people who constantly dream of drinking lots of clean water but still thirsty. I want to remind you that, only the Lord Jesus Christ truly satisfies. 

As a Christian, if you found yourself drinking pure water in a dream but still thirsty, it could mean that you need a fresh infilling of the Holy Spirit. You need to be refilled to the brim by Him. So go ahead and position yourself to be filled with the Holy Spirit. 

John 4:13-14
Jesus answered, 'Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. The water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.' 

Dream of drinking water and not satisfied could also mean that you are lacking the word of God in you. According to the holy Bible, the Word of God is also like water (which washes us from all impurities and sanctifies us) - Ephesians 5:25–26

Dream Drinking Dirty Water


A dream of drinking dirty water is a bad omen. In the physical realm, drinking dirty water can result in lots of health challenges. It's no different when it comes to dreams. 

If you found yourself drinking dirty water in a dream, first thing you should do when you wake up is to pray aggressively that God purges you from the spiritual poison you consumed in your dream. 

Dream Of Someone Giving Me Water To Drink


If someone gives you water to drink in a dream, the person giving you the water is one symbol that matters a lot.

In the physical world, I'm sure that you wouldn't want to accept drinking water from just anyone. People are very cautious when it comes to accepting drinking water from someone, be it in sports, in the church or in parties. You should as well be that cautious in your dreams.

Most of those who accepted drinking water from someone in their dream, did so against their will. Which shows that it was a spiritual attack. I'll advise that you don't accept to drink water from anyone in your dreams, for your safety. 

Prayer Against Drinking Bad And Dirty Water In A Dream


  1. Thank You Father for the water which You give us, which wells up to eternal life. 
  2. Father, I declare that my spirit shall not accept water from strange and evil hands in my dreams. 
  3. Agents of darkness assigned to feed me poisonous water in my dreams, be arrested in the Name of Jesus Christ. 
  4. Every evil deposit in me due to drinking water my dreams, be uprooted! In the Name of Jesus Christ! 
  5. I come against and thwart every goal and plans the enemy intended to achieve by feeding me water in my dreams. 
  6. I cancel every effect of water poisoning in my dreams from my life. In the Name of Jesus Christ. 
  7. Every persistent negative dreams of drinking water, I command you to come to a halt! In the Name of Jesus Christ! 
  8. I close the door against continuous dreams of drinking water. 
  9. I receive power to reject water from the enemy in my dreams. In the Name of Jesus Christ! 
  10. Fire of God, purge and cleanse me from every form of evil deposit in me. In the Name of Jesus Christ! 

Final Thoughts On Dream Of Drinking Water


In a nutshell, most dreams of drinking water will often turn out to be a bad omen. It is safer for the dreamer not to drink water at all in their dream.

If you happen to fetch and drink clean water by yourself in a dream, it could mean that you need to position yourself to be fed God's Word and be filled with the Holy Spirit.

If you are not a Christian but you keep seeing yourself drinking water in a dream but not satisfied, I'm glad to inform you that you need Jesus Christ in your life—the One who gives us living and eternal water of life.

God bless you.
