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.
