That’s kind of a cool picture, the big guy looks a little cuddly, kind of cute in a funny way, doesn’t he?  And yet, the hippopotamus is considered to be one of the most dangerous animals on the African continent.  I sure wouldn’t have come to that conclusion just by looking at him.

But the thing is, this reality of concealed danger is often true in many areas of life.  Things look OK, it all seems safe, maybe even kind of attractive.  But the reality, the truth that is not immediately obvious, is that what you’re facing is deadly.

In the physical realm there’s usually a lot of information available, and we can quickly determine what’s safe and what’s not.  That doesn’t necessarily mean we’ll be wise about it, but at least we have access to the facts.

Now the situation in the spirit realms is much the same, and yet very different.  It is the same in that things may appear to be safe, often even desirable when, in fact, things are lethal.  Now, things are different in the spirit realm in that, apart from Scripture, good information can be tough to come by.

How do we navigate the spiritual dangers we all face, dangers that are motivated and guided by demonic forces that are seeking to distract, misguide, and destroy us?  Well, as I’ve already noted, we have the Scriptures as a readily available guide, if we’ll just use them.

But we have access to something else; through prayer we have direct access to the leading of the Holy Spirit, we have access to the very wisdom of God.  The catch is, you have to actually be praying.  That… well it’s entirely too easy to let that slide.  We should be aware that a failure to pray may be very dangerous.
