  • Erica Campbell of Mary Mary told SoulTracks that, "the song is telling people that you see what I have, but it isn't just me, it's the God in me."
  • Gospel artist KiKi (Kierra) Sheard makes a guest appearance on this track. Kierra's song "Have What You Want" can be heard playing in Mary Mary's music video for their 2005 song "Yesterday."
  • Following a performance at the 2009 BET Awards, Mary Mary returned to the Hot 100 for the first time since 2000 with this song.
  • This ascended into theTop 10 of R&B/Hip-Hop Songs in its 42nd week on the chart, the longest climb to the top tier in the survey's 67-year history. This song was Mary Mary's second single to reach the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Top 10, following "Shackles (Praise You)" in 2000. The duo became the first gospel act to achieve multiple top 10s on the chart in the 21st century.
  • In its 64th week on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, this broke the record for the longest run by a group on the chart, surpassing Dru Hill's "In My Bed," which ran for 63 weeks in 1997-98.
    The tune also holds the longevity record among gospel songs on the chart, overtaking Kirk Franklin's "Looking for You," which clocked up 60 weeks in 2005-06.
  • This won in the Best Gospel Song category at the 2010 Grammy Awards.
  • At the 25th Annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards, this won the Song of the Year award. Amongst Mary Mary's other honors at the ceremony was the Group/Duo of the Year award.
