The instrumentation on this song pays homage to Michael Jackson. TobyMac told Billboard magazine: "The Off the Wall record was my favorite Michael Jackson record. 'Feel It' was definitely a nod in that direction - the use of percussion, the guitar part, the rhythm section and horns. It definitely has that feel about it."
The lyrics contain a simple yet powerful message. "I don't want to overthink faith because I want to know God's work," said TobyMac. "I want it to be passion and spirit more than knowledge, so the lyric is really simple 'I feel it in my heart, I feel it in my soul. You take our brokenness and make us beautiful.' That's how I know. Let's just focus the fact that we are broken and somehow He puts us together and makes us beautiful."
