The heart of this song is expressed beautifully in scripture through King David’s prayer to the Lord. In Psalm 27:4 we see why David is referred to as the man after God’s own heart. He knew that there was not a thing in the world that could compare to the presence of God, to knowing Him and being close to Him. It wasn’t about what God could do for Him, but it was simply about who God was to Him, and above all, that He was and is worthy of all our praise and admiration.
“One thing I desire of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in His temple.” – Psalm 27:4
About the inspiration behind the song he had to say: “This song is so dear to me and is my heart’s cry daily to God. I was at a point in prayer where all I could say was “You are my desire”, because I have found that nothing else can fill the thirst, the hunger and the space inside. No matter what we do or seek, only Jesus can truly satisfy.
I felt God’s presence heavily and closer than the very air I breathe. I realized in that moment, nothing else touches the heart of God more than a heart that truly pants after HIM. Not what He can give, or what He can do, but just HIM.
Then I started writing this song, with help from my wife (Augustina Ojo) & little sis (Eunice Ojo). I pray as you listen, your heart will be connected to GOD and the fire of His love will be rekindled in your heart.
I am so grateful to have my dear sister and friend – Christiana Washington be a part of this song. Our connection was so divine, she is such a sincere, unique, humble and anointed worshipper! One of the best I’ve ever worked with! STAY TUNED!”
