Psalms 17:13 (KJV) Sorry to Disappoint You

Psalms 17:13 (KJV)
Arise, O LORD, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword:
David prayed that God would disappoint his enemies. The word, as I understand it, means to come before. Literally David prayed for God to get in between his enemies and their plans.
This appears to me to be a “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done.” type prayer. David asks that God would do for him in his lifetime what God’s Word assures us He will do in His sovereign plan.
  • Satan
  • The governments of this world and 
  • The pervasive world view 
all conspire together in an effort to prevent God’s final plan. Their conspiracy, we are assured, is fruitless, as God will finally step in between them and their plot to once and for all disappoint them.
As for us, we will not be disappointed if we trust God and stay next to him.
