God laughs at His enemies. Psalm 2:4 reads, " He who sits in the heavens laughs, The Lord scoffs at them" and Psalm 37:13 reads, "The Lord laughs at him, For He sees that his day is coming."
We, too, can laugh at our enemies. One thing to remember is that our enemies are NEVER people.
Ephesians 6:12 tells us, "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places"
Our enemies are the same as God's enemies. They are demon powers.
God wants all people to come to repentance. "The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not willing for any to perish, but for all to come to repentance" (2 Peter 3:9).
It may be hard not to gloat or celebrate when those who lie on you, mistreat you, and attack you fall, but remember they are not your real enemies. There are a number of reasons for their bad behavior: evil influences, past hurts, present insecurities, and giving in to human nature.
However, Proverbs 24:17 clearly reads, "Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, and do not let your heart rejoice when he stumbles, otherwise, the Lord will see and be displeased, and turn His anger away from him."
Remember who your real enemy is! " You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world" (1 John 4:4).
Don't stay down when the world knocks you down. Don't let gossip stop you. Though you may be surrounded by opposition, choose laughter. Not bitterness, guilt, shame, or revenge. We have victory through Christ (1 Corinthians 15:57).
Know that God laughs and will always have the last laugh. His joy is our strength. Choose today to laugh with God at your enemies.

This is incorrect! Scripture says in Proverbs 24:17-18 Amplified Bible (AMP) Do not rejoice and gloat when your enemy falls, And do not let your heart be glad [in self-righteousness] when he stumbles, Or the LORD will see your gloating and be displeased, And turn His anger away from your enemy.

@Cody Boles you are absolutely correct. If you read the entire post, you will see that we are not laughing at people, as they are not our enemies. Our enemies are demonic spirits.
