Songfacts®:

  • This inspirational song addresses civil unrest in America and is about believing that God will see everyone through. Hezekiah Walker told ABC Radio, "Since I did 'Every Praise,' it was little difficult coming up with a song after that. But that I've been watching what's going on in our world. We now, our world is working around with a lot of uncertainty. We don't know what's going to happen to our communities."

    "I watched what went down in Baltimore, Ferguson, and our people are hurting right now," he added. "But I really believe with all of my heart... that God is in control."
  • The song's lyrics were inspired by Ecclesiastes 7:8, which reads;

    The end of a matter is better than its beginning
    And patience is better than pride
