Bible Verses Celebrating Your Baby’s Creation
“Every good and perfect gift comes from above.”
This is a perfect verse for baby shower invitations, a birth announcement, or even Instagram captions! A succinct way to describe your gift from God.
“Your eyes did see my body being formed, even before I was born, you had written in your book everything about me.”
I love that God knows us before we are born, in our mother’s womb, and that he knows all that will come in our lives. This is one of the best Bible verses to talk about the good news that God is our Creator and Sustainer.
1 Samuel 1:27
“I asked God for a child. Here he is! The Lord gave me just what I asked for.”
The story of Hannah is so inspiring for mothers, especially when they have longed for a child. This Bible quote really echoes the grace of God in the gift of little children.
“Whoever welcomes a little child in my name, accepts me.”
I love that the Bible talks about the kingdom of heaven belonging to children. This beautiful Bible verse reminds us that adults must also humble ourselves and lead children in the ways of God as we parent them.
“Before I made you in your mother’s womb, I chose you. Before you were born, I set you apart for a special work. I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
This verse reminds us that God forms all of our inward parts and knows us deeply, even in the mystery of a tiny baby. Every new parent knows the anticipation of meeting a new child and can take comfort that God holds their future.
“You formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am wonderfully made! Wonderful are your works! My very self you know.”
This is a beautiful Bible verse, very popular for sharing the pregnancy news. I love the way this verse reminds us that we are wondrous works, even as an unborn baby. God crafts the “inner parts of my body” and knows each child uniquely in the mother’s womb.
Bible Verses for Long-Awaited Pregnancy Announcements
Many families pray for children for many years before they experience their first pregnancy. These verses really speak to that experience.
1 Samuel 1:27
“I prayed for this child, and the Lord granted my request.”
Hannah is such a powerful reminder of a mother who waited for a long time to have her first child. In God’s perfect time, she was able to have her son Samuel and in this verse, she commits him back to God’s service.
“Perhaps you were born for such a time as this.”
These powerful words, spoken to Esther, reflect that God knows all of our days, and we can face them, with no fear of the future. As a new mom, I found them very comforting as I brought children into the world, believing that they are children of God.
“Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from Him.”
This Bible verse is a perfect reminder that every good gift of new life is from the spirit of God.
“He has made everything beautiful in its time.”
“God has surely listened and has heard my prayer.”
1 John 5:14
“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.”
If you have ever waited for the perfect time for something to happen, you know when it finally occurs, it is overwhelming. These are perfect verses to describe that feeling for that special time.
Bible Verses about the Birth of a Child
“And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was on him.”
Of course, this verse is about Christ Jesus but isn’t it what we all pray for our kids? That they would be filled with God’s wisdom and filled with God’s grace.
“Every good and perfect gift comes from above, coming down from the Father of lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”
You will find this verse on so many items for babies, including cute pregnancy announcements. It is such a perfect reminder that all good things come from above.
“My frame was not hidden from you, when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.”
This verse is such a perfect way to describe God’s wondrous works in new life.
“See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands. Your walls are continually before me.”
This is great verse to remember that God has all of us, parents and children, in his hands.
“Shout to the Lord, all the earth.”
“For you make me glad by your deeds, O Lord; I sing for joy at what your hands have done.”
1 Chronicles 16:9
“Sing to him, sing praises to him. Tell of all his wonderful acts.”
I know when I realized I was expecting our first child, in my first trimester, these were the verses on my mind. I was so excited and thrilled about our coming addition and wanted to shout it out to everyone I passed!
“Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given.”
This is the verse I used for the birth announcement for our second child. Her middle name is even Grace!
“Then our sons in their youth will be like well-nurtured plants, and our daughters will be like pillars carved to adorn a palace.”
Whether you have baby girls or baby boys, we hope they work to serve the kingdom of God.
“You gave me life and showed me kindness, and in your providence watched over my spirit.”
“The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.”
Job certainly did not have an easy life, but God was always with him and Job stayed true to him. I hope our children also trust in God’s presence during their lives.
“Children’s children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children.”
I hope this is always true in our lives! What sweet love language about families.
“As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things.”
I love this verse about the power and majesty of God. Perfect for an announcement proclaiming the great works of God.
“And the child grew and became strong in spirit”
I love this verse for a birth announcement with a special wish for your child.
