From the Archives: Spirit Break Out

“Spirit Break Out” is one of my favorite worship songs right now. It’s been around for a little bit, but this song is always fresh and real whenever I hear it. Originally by Kim Walker Smith from Jesus Culture, this song has taken the worship world and has also been sung by Bethel and Kari Jobe. If you haven’t heard this song, I encourage you to go check it out before you read on.

Our Father, all of Heaven roars Your name
Sing louder, let this place erupt with praise
Can you hear it, the sound of Heaven touching Earth
The sound of Heaven touching Earth

Spirit break out
Break our walls down
Spirit break out
Heaven come down

King Jesus You’re the name we’re lifting high
Your glory shaking up the earth and skies
Revival we wanna see Your kingdom here
We wanna see Your kingdom here

Spirit break out
Break our walls down
Spirit break out
Heaven come down

I can’t imagine a more perfect cry to sing out during worship. As a worship leader, I imagine the sound of Heaven touching Earth the sound of a crowd of believers singing out loud as one in worship. There is nothing better than that moment. God longs for worshipers to roar his name—to sing it at the top of their lungs.

Often, we let our walls keep us from really encountering God. This song is a cry to let the Holy Spirit break down those walls so we can fully experience the presence of God. I want the spirit of God to break out of me and let my walls crumble. This song is a declaration I think every worshiper should be shouting to the Lord. I want my heart and soul to erupt in praise every time I walk into the presence of God. I don’t want my worship to be about me or my problems…I want it to be fully centered of Jesus and the praise He deserves.

A lot of worship songs now days are full of things about us and how to make us feel better. This song on the other hand is a beautiful declaration about what can and should happen in the presence of God.

My prayer is that in both worship and the rest of my life—I let the walls break down and that the spirit of the Lord can break through. I want to see His kingdom here. Worship can give us a glimpse of what heaven is like…everyone worshiping together at the feet of Jesus.
