Samuel anointed him in the midst of his brethren and the spirit of the Lord came upon him from that day forward.
When the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, David took a harp and played with his hand and Saul was refreshed and was well and the evil spirit departed from him. 1st Samuel 16:23
David was the shepherd boy who defeated the Giant named Goliath of Gath, a philistine who defied the name of the God of Israel.
