Stir A Passion is the highly anticipated new live album from Worship Central—a worship collective in the UK led by Tim Hughes (“Here I Am To Worship”) and Luke Hellebronth (“Spirit Break Out”). With Stir A Passion, Worship Central delivers songs of prayer and praise that capture both elation and reflection from the people of God. It is an urgent plea before God to reveal more of His Spirit and kingdom here and now.

The Spirit of God is the central focus of the songs on Stir A Passion. From the penitent invocation and opener, “Pray” to the leading single, “All For Love (Gethsemane)”, to “Waves” and through the benediction, “Hope And Glory,” there is a desire to see the power of God, moving through the lives, communities and churches of believers—stirring a passion for worship in their hearts.

Who does God say you are?

 As believers, this is such a monumental concept to grasp and to meditate on. Our identity resides in knowing ourselves in Christ and living within the stability of knowing you are who God says you are. Who are you that God would want to rescue you? That He would choose to give up His life for you? That He wants to bless abundantly? Let’s look at some declarations scripture makes over you:

I am God’s workmanship, created in Christ unto good works. (Ephesians 2:10)

I am an ambassador for Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:20)

I am part of a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a purchased people. (1 Peter 2:9)

I am greatly loved by God. (Romans 1:7; Ephesians 2:4; Colossians 3:12; 1 Thessalonians 1:4)

That last statement can make your heart flip or your body feel like it’s receiving a much-needed supernatural hug. You are G R E A T L Y loved by God. The God of all creation, the God of everlasting glory, the God who is and has everything loves YOU. He loves you G R E A T L Y.  

I am born of God, and the evil one does not touch me. (1 John 5:18)

I am complete in Him Who is the Head of all principality and power. (Colossians 2:10)

So obviously, God thinks you’re a pretty big deal. You’re royalty, you’re His workmanship, you are made complete in He who has all power and authority. You were created to love, be loved, and to serve all for the glory of the kingdom. That makes YOU and all of the things God has created you to be important. God sees you as valid and needed.

“Who the Son sets free

Oh is free indeed

I’m a child of God

Yes I am

In my Father’s house

There’s a place for me

I’m a child of God

Yes I am”

“I am a child of God”. We hear that phrase so often within our congregations that I believe we start to numb out the meaning of it and how it applies to our everyday lives. I once heard a professor at my university say, “The stronger our understanding of our identity in Christ becomes, the more our self-worth grows”.

We have times, especially as creatives, where we can be insecure, we can feel as though we aren’t good enough or we’re not able to take on big challenges. We feel like maybe we are just another writer, just another worship leader, perhaps an unimportant and unneeded contribution to the creativity and ideas being tossed around by our culture. You may have asked yourself hard questions like, “God can I really do this? I mean, I know you called me to it, but am I good enough? Why bring me into this when there are people all around who are so much better?” To which the Holy Spirit gently answers and says:

“Just. Stop. Who are you?”

You are a child of God. That can never be threatened or taken from you. While everything around you and about you changes, this is the one thing about yourself that will stay constant. If God says you are going to do something big, if He says that you are going to be successful in something then guess what—He gave you those dreams with the knowing that you WILL and CAN do it. We begin to doubt ourselves and the power of God when we chose to put our faith in any of our other self-schemas. We start to lean on our own strengths, our personalities, or our own interests and find that our self-worth is shaky and unstable. It’s only when you allow your identity to rest in who you are in God that fear leaves and that annoying inner self-critic finally closes its mouth.

“I am chosen

Not forsaken

I am who You say I am

You are for me

Not against me

I am who You say I am”

"You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you." (John 15:16)

You are chosen by a God who loves you deeply. A God who is for you and is never against you. A God who has plans for you to prosper. A God who wants a relationship with you. A God who will never let you down.

We haven’t covered all the declarations God makes over you by any means, but, we hope that some of these statements have resonated with you today. We hope they encouraged you and maybe inspire you to dive deeper into knowing yourself as who God declares you to be.

 “There is more at stake than we dare realize— souls, communities, families, nations on the other side of our wrestle through the night seasons. Our personal freedom is for corporate revival. There is more of God, and more to God and His love than we can possible conceive of.”  - Brooke Ligertwood

Hillsong released the premise for the highly anticipated 26th live praise album earlier this year:

“In Genesis 32 we read the story of Jacob wrestling with God through the night. On the other side of Jacob’s divine encounter was a new name, a new blessing, a new identity and a new way of walking (literally). Will we be a worshipping people who are not content to sleep through the night (spiritually speaking) and wake in the morning unchanged? Like Jacob, will we enter into the wrestle with God, dare to know Him more intimately and be changed in the process?” 

With songs such as, “Who You Say I Am”, “Be Still”, and “The Passion”, “THERE IS MORE” is packed with powerful declarations of praise and messages of hope for the future. Songs like, “New Wine”, speak directly to individuals, proclaiming that God sees potential in who you are. 

We hope this album encourages you and your congregation to have a fierce encounter with God!
