Ecclesiastes 3:1New Living Translation (NLT)
For everything there is a season,
a time for every activity under heaven.
David's many opportunities to kill Saul
This one is simple - Time is something we all deal with - God knows what is best for us, and when it is best for us. David was giving chance after chance.. after chance to kill Saul and take the station of King, right fully anointed to him by God. The good thing about David in this time of his life, He knew that it was not the right way to take what was 'his'. He still held a high respect for Saul and waited for God to move Saul out.
Everything really does have it's time and it's place. Each kid is not driving around town because they are not old enough to legally do it. It is possible that they could learn and do it, but the time is not right for it. If we can all learn how to see things like David did, and have God given discernment - we would have a bit easier time in 'life'.
