Why the name
“You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied..."
~Shepherd boy David
(1 Samuel 17:45)
The story of David is one of a kind. There are sixty-six chapters in the Old Testament written about David and there are fifty-nine references to him in the New Testament. We can read about him in 1 and 2 Samuel, 1 Kings, 1 Chronicles, and in Psalms as he wrote seventy-three of them. We also know that Jesus Christ is a descended of David’s lineage.
Did we decide on the name David’s Courage since he is the clear winner in the "Most Biblically Referenced" contest? Absolutely not. We completely love that David, despite his situations, was a man after God’s heart. David continuously stepped out in faith and boldly proclaimed it! We feel our mission aligns with David’s sincere acts of repentance and his courage.
We encourage you to read the referenced verses above. Learn about David, the young musically gifted shepherd boy that defeated a giant. Read about the man who hid from a king, leaving him isolated in a cave for many years. Discover how David became a king himself, buried three sons, and despite the fact he repeatedly made mistakes, his Heavenly Father loved him. When you are done absorbing that great story, reflect on how much God loves you.
