  • This was released as the debut single by the American gospel-rock recording artist Colton Dixon. He said of the song: "I think there's something powerful in knowing God is what we can't be and he's everything we're not. It encourages me, because whenever I fall I know God will be there to pick me up and I think that is something people need to hear. God is what I want to sing about, he is the air that surrounds me and the hope I need."
  • A Messenger is a faith-based album. Dixon explained to Billboard magazine that pursuing the Christian rock path was a natural choice for him. "I've been listening to Christian music since I was little. I grew up with it," he said.

    Dixon added that he loves music with a message and is therefore drawn to Christian rock tunes. "I'm very happy that I was excepted well into that market. You never know... being an 'Idol' and going into Christian music - I've seen it work and I've seen it not work. I'm happy that it did."
