You Existed In Heaven Before Your Birth

You Existed In Heaven Before Your Birth by Jamie Rohrbaugh - blogDid you know that you existed in Heaven before your birth?

It’s true. There are several Bible verses that show us this beautiful truth.

First, in Jeremiah 1:5, God told Jeremiah:

Start-quote‘Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.’”

God clearly says in that verse that He knew Jeremiah before He (God) formed him in his mother’s womb. You can’t know someone that doesn’t exist.

Then there’s Psalm 139:15-16, which says:

Start-quoteMy frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them.”

This passage again tells us that God knew you intimately–and knew everything that would EVER happen to you–before you ever lived your first day.

Before you ever took your first breath, He knew you.

Before you even had a body–before your mother’s egg and your father’s sperm came together–God knew you. That means you had to exist.

Check out this amazing story:

I heard a story recently about some parents they knew of who had two children. One child was very young; not even school age yet. The other child was a baby.

One night, one of the parents heard the older child in the baby’s bedroom, talking to the baby. The parent was concerned and stopped to listen… only to hear the child say: “Tell me what Heaven is like. I’m starting to forget.”


That child knew what Heaven was like.

In order for Papa to have known us, we have to have existed in some form in Heaven.

Can you imagine all the children in Heaven that Papa knows, that have not been born yet? Do you think they are all saying to Him, “Pick me! Pick me! Let me go now!”

Maybe that was you.

Before He formed you in the womb, you existed in Heaven. I don’t pretend to understand how it works. But somehow, in some form, you existed in Heaven before your birth.

That means Father God ordained your birth. He chose this moment in time for you to be revealed on earth. He planned your birth and rejoiced over it!

Whether you feel like it or not, our Father’s heart beats for you. He thinks of you every moment.

And He wants a relationship with you. You are His, you see. His baby. And He loves you. He craves you.

Will you answer His call and seek Him today?

A note about comments:

I love 'em. Your feedback means the world to me. It keeps me going when writing gets hard. Please keep your comments coming.

Sometimes, though, because my schedule is so intense between my family, my day job, and my church, it takes me a few days to respond to comments. Not always, but sometimes, and I apologize for the delay. I get 'em right away, though, and I start praying for you right away if you've asked for prayer, and I'll respond as soon as possible.

Thank you for reading my blog!


  1. Here is a song I learned as a child and that my kids learn at church today;
    I lived in heaven, a long time ago, it is true.
    lived there and loved there with people I know, so did you.
    then heavenly father created a beautiful plan
    all about earth, and eternal salvation for man.

    Of course we lived with Him there. We are His children. He created us. He sent us here to get a physical body, and learn things we never could learn there. One day, we will return again and return full circle. He sent a savior for us so that when we mess up here, we will have the opportunity to repent and be worthy to go home. Life is ETERNAL, from beginning to end. I don’t pretend to understand the how either. But I know without a doubt that it is true!
