Question: I dreamed of being in what I think was a prison a while back. I was in the prison with someone. When I got the revelation of the dream, it was my son who was the other prisoner. My son is now 21 and has been diagnosed with a chemical brain imbalance. They want to say he is bi-polar but he is not doing something for them to say it is definite. I asked him if it is true he hears voices. He said, ďYes, when I am alone for too long I hear mumbling and laughing.Ē I believe the devil is a liar. I believe God is almighty and I canít stop believing that. How it is that power is given to cripple the children of God with such gross illnesses. I donít understand. I left the church I was going to looking for answers. I was looking for answers to all his behavior for the past 8 years. Half the time I didnít even know I was looking. My son was not serving God when he got to high school. Peer pressure and the temptations of life engulfed him. Frustration and failure wrestled me. How it is that power is given to cripple the children of God with such gross illnesses.

Answer: You stated that your son was not serving God, which suggests that he was not in fact a child of God. That was not because of anything God did or didn't do; that was his own choice. We allow the adversary into our lives by our sins. If he would truly repent and begin to live in a way that is pleasing to God, I have no doubt that God would deliver him from these afflictions.
