What Does It Mean To Eat In A Dream

If you frequently or occasionally find yourself eating in the dream, you are under attack. Read this article to understand the meaning of eating dream
There are dreams which occur frequently and are seen by many people on daily basis. One of such dreams is a dream about eating. 

Eating dreams are so common, to the extent people don't bother anymore to know whether or not it's harmful to eat in dreams. For some of these people, it has become a norm to eat in the dream—when it is not supposed to be so. 

What Does It Mean To Eat In A Dream

If you're one of those who often find themselves eating in the dream and you're not bothered, I would say that is such a dangerous place to be. 

Isaiah 29:8 ESV
As when a hungry man dreams, and behold, he is eating, and awakes with his hunger not satisfied, or as when a thirsty man dreams, and behold, he is drinking, and awakes faint, with his thirst not quenched, so shall the multitude of all the nations be that fight against Mount Zion.

Probably you're reading this article because you saw yourself eating in the dream, or it could be that you have been seeing disturbing dreams about eating food of recent. Accurate Christian dream interpretation is made possible by the Holy Spirit. Let us trust the Spirit of God to bring understanding concerning your dream. 

People see different kinds of dreams about eating, including the following:

  • Eating tasty food in dream meaning 
  • Dream of eating food with friends
  • Dream of eating food with someone
  • Cooking and eating in the dream
  • Dream of eating food with family

Irrespective of whichever way a dream of eating food may come, I'll like to bring to your attention that most of these dreams are not a good omen.

Eating food in the dream is not a godly dream, hence, not from God. Most of these dreams come as a spiritual attack from the enemy. 

What Does It Mean To Eat In The Dream

According to Isaiah 29:8, we see that eating in the dream has no benefit at all. If something does not have any advantage, it is going to have a disadvantage for sure. It can't lack both at the same time. 

I had earlier stated that eating in the dream is a kind of spiritual attack from the enemy. Eating in the dream is harmful to the soul of the dreamer, because it is not real food that people eat in their dreams. 

The kingdom of darkness uses dreams of eating as an avenue to feed the dreamer spiritual poison. That is why, most of those who wake up from eating in the dream only to go about their day, may end up falling ill some days afterwards.

That said, eating in the dream often means spiritual poisoning. The effects of that can manifest as follows:

1. Sudden And Unexplained Illnesses

Because the kingdom of darkness feeds their targets spiritual poison in the dream, the effects can be very devastating. 

The dreamer might start getting terribly sick, but diagnosis will repeatedly show that nothing is wrong with them.

In the event where serious prayers and deliverance are not done on the dreamer, frequently eating in the dream can result in death.

2. Reduced Spiritual Fervency 

The enemy feeds people spiritual poison also with the intention of bringing them down spiritually. Christians are the number one target when it comes to this. 

That is why you would hear people complain about always eating in the dream while they are fasting. The enemy knows that through their fasting, they will advance spiritually. Do not expect him to just sit back and watch that happen. That is when he looks for a way to prevent the Christian from advancing spiritually, by feeding them spiritual poison. 

Most dreams of eating are meant to reduce the Anointing in a Christian. So the next time you are making efforts to advance spiritually, yet you see yourself constantly eating in the dream; understand what the enemy is doing. Do not give up, knowing that demonic opposition is expected.

3. Setbacks And Failure At The Verge Of Breakthrough

There are people who pray for breakthrough or maybe they might have received good news of a coming breakthrough, only to start seeing themselves eating in their dreams

What happens next is that the breakthrough they were anticipating slips out of their grip. This is not the will of God, but the work of the enemy. 

Pay attention to whenever you expect something new from God, if you start seeing yourself eating in the dream, know that the enemy is working to rob you of that breakthrough. Pray accordingly. 

Prayer Against Eating In The Dream

  1. Thank You Father for unveiling the tricks of the enemy and making me knowledgeable of them. 
  2. By the power of the Almighty, I come against every power of darkness working setbacks against me through dream poisoning. Be destroyed, in the Name of Jesus Christ! 
  3. Powers of darkness constantly blocking my breakthrough by feeding me in dream, catch fire now! In the Name of Jesus Christ! 
  4. I come against every persistent dreams of eating. I command you to come to an end now! In the name of Jesus Christ. 
  5. Every demonic caterer assigned against me, be arrested now! In the Name of Jesus Christ! 
  6. From now on, I receive power to reject food in my dreams. 
  7. I come against every effect of dream food. I command them to be annulled right now! 
  8. Any evil spirit that may attempt to feed me in dreams again, let it be arrested by the power of God! 
  9. Thank You Lord for delivering me from evil dream caterers and their effects. In the Name of Jesus Christ. 

Final Thoughts On Eating In The Dream

Many people make fun of eating in dreams, but I think that is due to their lack of knowledge on how destructive dreams of eating can be. No one who is discerning enough to spot the tricks of the enemy would see eating in a dream as harmless.

If you always find yourself eating in the dream, read this article again, understand and apply it accordingly to your life. Always be swift to pray and cancel whatever the enemy intends to achieve against you, each time you find yourself eating in the dream.

Work on building your prayer and spiritual life, at some point you will be able to reject food in your dreams.

Stay blessed.
