If you’ve ever seen Song of the South (and if you haven’t, good luck!) or ridden Splash Mountain, you know how successful Brer Fox and Brer Bear are at capturing or killing Brer Rabbit (or whatever it was they were trying to do). If you haven’t, the short version is…not at all.

 

Every trap they set traps them. Every time they try to lure Brer Rabbit or tempt him, he gets the best of them. Even when they think they finally have him, he tricks them into throwing him into the Briar Patch, not realizing that he’s perfectly at home there.

 

Brer Rabbit is confident and secure. Brer Fox and Brer Bear stumble at every turn.

 

 

The Lord is my light and my salvation
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life
of whom shall I be afraid?
When evil men advance against me
to devour my flesh,
when my enemies and my foes attack me,
they will stumble and fall.
Though an army besiege me,
my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
even then will I be confident.

Psalm 27:1-3

 

Like Brer Rabbit, we too can be confident, only we have a much better reason than our own cleverness. The Lord is your light, your salvation, and your stronghold. When you face challenges and enemies, what more could you ask for?

 

There will be times when your enemies will seem to prosper and their attacks against you succeed, but in time they will stumble and fall. No matter what comes against you, as long as you stand firm in God, you have no need to fear. “In the paths of the wicked lie thorns and snares, but he who guards his soul stays far from them.”
