“The Devil After the Dove” Principle - Love Worth Finding - March 10, 2012



“The Devil After the Dove” Principle

Neither give place to the devil.” Ephesians 4:27

Have you ever gotten into an argument with a family member on the way to church? Don’t look so pious! Every preacher knows that the devil will try to attack God’s children right before church, after church—on the way home in the car! There is a spiritual principle here that we need to learn. It is what I call “the devil after the dove” principle.

Just as when Jesus was baptized and a dove descended, then right after He was led into the wilderness and tempted, so it will be with you.  When God does something great or when you get the approval of God about something, you can expect the attack of the enemy.

Leonard Ravenhill said, “When God opens the windows of heaven to bless us, the devil is going to open the doors of hell to blast us.” Have you had a wonderful spiritual experience recently? Then you better not start coasting. If the devil tempted Jesus, be sure he will tempt you as well.
