Dave Eubank has become famous for the video and pictures of his heroic rescue earlier this month, but he gives all the credit to God.

The former Special Forces soldier who ran more than 100 yards under ISIS fire in Iraq to rescue a little girl said God’s Word inspires him to risk his life to save others.

Dave Eubank has become famous for the video and pictures of his heroic rescue earlier this month, but he gives all the credit to God.

“It was, I believe, God’s power that helped us rescue that girl…the American air dropping smoke, the Iraqi’s providing that tank and all of ya’ll out there praying is how it happened,” Eubank told CBN News.

“I just said, ‘Lord help us’ and if I die my wife and kids would understand … it’s to save a little girl and I ran and I had to pull her away from her dead mother,” he said.

His strength and courage come from God’s Word, Eubank said.

“John 13:15 — hope I got that right — but I know the words though, ‘Greater love hath no man than this, that he lay his life down for his friends.”

Eubank said God first spoke that Scripture to him when he was trying to save another child from ISIS.

“I thought, ‘I’m gonna get killed’ and that verse came to me. I thought, ‘Uh-oh, I gotta follow that order from Jesus’ and I was afraid, but God gave me strength and almost every day that verse kept coming to me,” he said.

He also has advice for overcoming fear.

“Whenever you’re afraid, you know we all get afraid, ask God ‘Should I do this?’ And, if the answer is ‘yes’ — from God, not our emotions — then ask for love because love will cast out fear.”
