Show Notes

The young David, who would later become the renowned King David of Israel, had a remarkable life that was marked by faith, courage, and a deep relationship with God. Born in Bethlehem, David was the youngest son of Jesse and grew up in a humble shepherd's family.

 

As a shepherd, David spent much of his time tending to his father's flock. It was during this period that he developed a strong connection with God, spending solitary hours in the fields, communing with the Lord and writing songs of praise and worship.

 

David's life took a pivotal turn when the prophet Samuel visited Bethlehem and anointed him as the future king of Israel. This anointing set David apart as God's chosen vessel and marked the beginning of his journey towards fulfilling God's purpose.

 

In today’s episode, we highlight David’s experiences protecting his sheep from wild animals, his time playing his lyre in the court of King Saul, and his victory over the Philistine giant, Goliath.
