Spirit of God – The Story Behind the Song

From THE NEXT WAVE Live Worship Album – Released 18/2/18

Kane Adams – 26/2/2018

I’ve always been so inspired by the Day of Pentecost in the Book of Acts. In chapter 2, verses 1 to 4, we read:

When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

What an incredible event! Just before Jesus ascended into Heaven, He promised the disciples that they would be baptised in the Holy Spirit and with that, they shall “receive power” when the Holy Spirit comes upon them (Acts 1:5-8).

I’ve always been so intrigued and fascinated by this event, which gave inspiration when writing the song Spirit of God. I wanted to write a song that not only glorifies God, but creates an environment of faith that ushers in the tangible manifestation of the Holy Spirit and His power! Thankfully, the baptism of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost in the Book of Acts was never intended to only reside with the disciples. God desires to pour out His Spirit on His children today as well! It’s through the power of the Holy Spirit that miracles can take place, healings can breakout and lives can be delivered from the chains of darkness. Today, we need His power more than ever.

Some of my favourite lines from the song are:

Heaven come, fill this place with love,
Spirit fall, fill us with new tongues,
Spirit of God, fill this place with power, with grace and love
We want more of You Lord,
Spirit rain down, miracles breakout,
King of Heaven, send Your glory down

My prayer is that as people hear and sing this song, their faith is encouraged to receive the power of the Holy Spirit, bringing forth miracles, healings, and breakthroughs in their lives!
