A possum is a small scavenger mammal that is gray in color with a small triangular snout. They are known for their survival tactic where they play dead when they feel threatened, even showing the appearance and smell of a dead possum.
Positive: Dreaming of a possum could represent that God is dealing with your humility. Even though you humble yourself and may appear as though you’re finished, the enemy’s pride will cause him to leave thinking he has won while you lay in wait to claim your spoils.
Negative: In a dream, a possum could symbolize that you suffer from fear and a lack of boldness and God is trying to help you in that area.
(1 Samuel 28:5; Colossians 2:14-15; Proverbs 29:25).
