While some parents choose to find out the gender of their baby so they can decorate with gender specific colors, many parents choose to wait until the baby is born to find out if they’re having a girl or boy.
If you or the new mom you’re celebrating falls into this category, here are a few verses to get you started…
- 1 Samuel 1: 27 – “I prayed for this child; and Yahweh has given me my petition which I asked of him.”
- Jeremiah 1: 5 – “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I sanctified you. I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
- Jeremiah 29: 11 – “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,” says Yahweh, “thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you hope and a future.”
- Psalm 127:3-5 – “Behold, children are a heritage of Yahweh. The fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows in the hand of a mighty man, so are the children of youth. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them. They won’t be disappointed when they speak with their enemies in the gate.”
- Proverbs 22:6 – “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.”
- Deuteronomy 6:6-9 – “These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.”
