A guard is one who protects someone or something from attack, injury, or danger and keeps watch over a person, place, or thing. Note what the guard is watching over in the dream.
Positive: Seeing a guard in your dream could represent protection from God, defense against the enemy, or being under God’s watch. Dreaming of a guard could also represent guarding your heart from the enemy.
Negative: Dreaming of a guard can represent the need to proceed with caution and alertness. Guards can symbolize that you are a prisoner and are being held captive in spiritual bondage.
