Houser told The Boot
about the inspiration for the tune: "I was in a place where all the things I thought would make me truly happy, I found could make me just as miserable."
He added: "This song had been on my heart for about three weeks. We wrote another song, and everyone was packing up to leave and I sat down and played the first chord and sang 'In God's Time.' I said, 'Shane, I'm supposed to write this song. Do y'all want to stay?' Both of them said [yes].It was exactly what I needed to say at the time," he continued. "It was exactly what I'd been feeling, but it hadn't manifested itself yet. It was exactly what my heart needed to hear. A lot of times you have to verbally say things to soak 'em up."
