When we dream about certain things we can’t help but to think that these dreams have a much deeper meaning to them. Sometimes certain dreams come in a row and we can’t stop having these dreams that keep us up at night. No matter how much we tried to hide certain feelings and emotions, they are going to swim up to the surface in our dreams.
Dreams can warn us about things we are missing out on in real life or remind us to be more in touch with our inner self.
Biblical interpretation of dreams is basically same as the interpretation we use in popular culture, with the expectation of looking at dreams based on the symbolic meaning of certain things in the Bible. In ancient times, dreams were taken seriously and people died and sacrificed everything because they believed in the reality of their dreams. Even though things have drastically changed today, dreams are still an important part of our lives.
In today’s text we will talk more about the symbolic Biblical interpretation of shoes in dreams. So, if you had one of those dreams recently, here is the possible interpretation of their meaning.
Biblical meaning of shoes
Even though shoes are common things we wear very day and don’t pay a lot of attention to when it comes to symbolism, shoes are actually very rich symbols.
In ancient times when people didn’t have shoes or when shoes were only worn by the ones who had enough money and resources to make them, shoes were a symbol of status and success of someone in life in general. When we look at Bible, there are many instances when shoes are mentioned in both positive and negative ways.
In the Bible, our shoes were symbols of serving God or our will to be obedient to his power. To describe how much will you have to show someone you love or respect him, shoes were used to paint exactly that. They were seen as symbols of sacrifice and will that can’t be dimmed down by anyone or anything. In many places inside the Bible, a person described shoes on his or hers feet in order to tell how much he or she is ready to walk for the grace of God.
Another symbolical meaning of shoes is faith in the divine power and victory over the mortal enemies. Filthy shoes in the Bible are symbols of straying of the path of God and going the wrong way. Sometimes they are even symbols of possession and kings and emperors used shoes to express how much power they have over them.
