One night in a dream, I saw my wife and me sitting in our room talking about certain matters. Suddenly through the open window, I see a dark woman running towards the front of our house. Her hair is strewn around her head and she has a wicked laugh. I run to the front room to check her out and as I enter the front room, she flings a coiled thing into the front room through the open window. I feel it is a python that she has thrown into the room, but then on checking I see that it is just a small snake, which slithers away into a pile of newspaper under the cupboard.
Meanwhile my wife comes into the front room and says, "I saw that wicked woman throw in a monkey. I corrected her saying, "That was not a monkey, it was a snake that she threw in."
But my wife was adamant. And me too. We did not want to change our opinions. As the dream ended, we were still arguing and finally both of us were unhappy that the other was not willing to give in.
The next morning we prayed about this matter in our family prayer. We realized it to be a satanic attack and if we were not prayerful and vigilant, there was bound to be a problem.
Later that day, in the evening, we (me and my wife) were talking about some family matters and soon the talk became an argument. We were going to get deeper in the argument when suddenly I remembered the dream that this was exactly what satan was trying to acheive. I became quiet for a while and then told my wife that the Holy Spirit had already hinted that there would be an attack by satan on our family life. She understood what I said and we prayed to the Lord and finally everything was fine.
The dark lady in the dream was indicative of an evil spirit. When she threw a coiled thing into the room, I thought it was a python (big problem) but in reality it was a small snake (small problem) which just slithered away without causing harm (trivial matter that subsides soon). My wife arguing that it was a monkey and me taking a stand that it was a snake represented the difference of opinion that was to take place.
If we heed the voice of the Holy Spirit, and pray, surely many problems in our life can be averted and more peace can prevail. All glory to Jesus.
