3 Spiritual Meanings of Dreaming About Flooding Water

Having a dream about flooding is often thought to symbolize a big life change, new beginnings, or forgiveness.

Since God uses dreams to guide us in the right direction, we must turn to the Bible to accurately interpret our dreams.

Flooding is mentioned many times throughout the Bible, including in the Book of Genesis and Revelation.

If you are having dreams of flooding, this tells me you are likely going through a tough time in your life. Do not ignore these messages from God.

Here are 3 possible spiritual meanings of having dreams about a flood:

1. You Will Experience a Positive Change

According to the Bible, flooding is symbolic of a big change in your future. God used flooding water to cleanse the Earth, allowing only Noah, his family, and the animals of the ark to survive (Genesis 7:7).

Once the flood waters receded, God made a promise to never flood the earth and harm a living creature again (Genesis 9:15). So when you dream about flooding, this is a sign of a positive change in your life.

The stress or difficulties you are facing will soon be washed away. Likely this is a great relief for you as you enjoy a certain amount of variety in your life.

You may be feeling trapped by limitations in your life such as your job, relationship, or living situation. Take this opportunity to thank God for His mercy and allow Him to guide you in a new direction.

2. You Are Always Faithful During Difficult Times

The Bible mentions flooding as a symbol of strength and morals. For instance, Matthew 7:25 KJV says:

And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

Throughout your life you have been tested many times by temptation but have remained faithful. It is no secret that you have passed on career or financial opportunities because you refused to take advantage of others.

Sometimes you wonder what your life might have been like if you made a different decision. But, you are thankful that you can sleep at night without a guilty conscience.

Dreaming about your house flooding is a reminder that if you remain faithful, you will not get swept away by temptation. Your faith is built on a foundation of rock and does not waiver.

3. Something Will Be Taken From You

Beware, when you dream of flooding, this may be a sign that something will be taken from you.

It is not clear what exactly will happen, but you should not ignore this message.

Often a dream about flooding means there is something in your life that you are taking for granted. When this person or opportunity is no longer around you will finally understand how valuable they were in your life.

A dream about flooding may be a message from God reminding you to appreciate the gifts he provides each day. Be thankful for all He has given you and the new opportunities that will come your way.

I have had this dream, there was a flood and I jumped into it, then I dreamed also of large land slide but no human lives taken, today I dreamed I was in a small flood in my dad's office and suddenly a huge landslide, but moving too slow, so we ran. Last one was slow too but large. What'd it mean?
I had a dream last night. I saw three white horses descending from heaven and a mighty flood followed and was covering the whole place people were running and shouting. I found myself gathering and packing money and soon the flood was calm again and I woke up to realize it was a dream

I had a dream about a river flooding last night. I woke up quite emotional about this. The river flooded roads and houses. I was swimming in the river and some warning was issued before the flood. I warned everyone to get out. I managed to get out to a house next to the river. A little water flooded the house I was in. I remember pushing the door closed and water was pushing through the key hole. I can't remember anyone getting injured.

I had a dream last night that there was a flood. It looks like the flood in the Bible. People n animals were getting washed away, and I was running and screaming " Jesus a come!" What does that mean?
Last night dreamed water was slowly rising in my house, but in one area there was a heavy stream down stairs into the area where it was slowly rising. One prominent thing I noticed were watermelon seeds in the water. I know it means something because when I woke up, it was vivid in my mind and remains there. HELP!!!!!🙏🏾
This flood dream was in a familiar house; I'm thinking/feeling it's my mother's house in the hallway. Flood waters came from behind me sweeping, & when I half turned around to look, I was lifted airborn in L position holding on to a thick painted wood structure of support built on the ceiling, & side of wall. I watched flood waters, & all items sweep by me. I woke up with some feels of fear, but I then immediately recalled how I was lifted for safety with a sigh of relief.
