“David also said, “As the LORD lives, surely the LORD will strike him [Saul], or his day will come that he dies, or he will go down into battle and perish.” (1 Sam 26:10)
David had multiple opportunities to take vengeance on King Saul for all the wicked things he had done to David. David, an innocent man, fled for his life, hiding in caves, begging for food, fleeing to foreign countries for refuge… all because of Saul.
So why didn’t he kill him when he had the chance?! David trusted God’s protection and timing. David was unwilling to murder a man to fix his problems. Two wrongs never make a right. How others behave should not dictate who we are. David refused to stoop to Saul’s level.
Christians trust in the LORD. We wait for Him and we overcome evil with good (see Rom 12:21).
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.” (Pr 3:5)
