Preventing Enemies From Rejoicing Over Us

An enemy was after David, but it seemed that the Lord would not respond to David’s pleas for help. Therefore, he pleaded further with the Lord, saying,

 Consider and hear me, O LORD my God; Enlighten my eyes, Lest I sleep the sleep of death; Lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed against him”;  Lest those who trouble me rejoice when I am moved. (Psalms 13:3-4)

David did not want to die with the thought that his enemy would rejoice, believing that he had prevailed over David.

What do you do when in a situation like that? Do what David did! Pray to God about it.
