God had you born at this particular time in all eternity, in the particular nation and in the particular family He wanted you in for a purpose. It was planned purpose, not blind evolution. This is your time to be in a physical body .
    We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. 

John 1:12,13 "But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name, which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God."

Isaiah 49:1 ".....The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels.(internal organs, inward parts).of my mother hath he made mention of my name."

Did we have a beginning or have we always existed like Christ? Or maybe this could be our second, third, four hundredth, four thousandth, or five millionth time around on Earth in the physical as some believers in reincarnation-espouse. 

This.(what follows here in this subject).is the mystery of His will talked of in Ephesians 1:9. The word 'mystery' as used in the Bible, is something being revealed.
    Those believing now in Jesus Christ were chosen and accepted in Him before the foundation of the world -Ephesians 1:4,5,6,11 "According as he has chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame.(original Greek is 'no flaws, blemishes or spots').before him in love. Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will...To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved...In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who works all things after the counsel of his own will.".Young's Literal Translation of the original Greek has verse 4: "According as He did choose us in him before the foundation of the world, for our being holy and unblemished before Him, in love."

God planned to have a group of people one with Him in individual thinking and expressions based on love -Colossians 1:22. Accepted.(not, to be accepted; we are accepted).by God -Ephesians 1:6) and acceptable to God, thanks to Jesus
    Right from the beginning we were made acceptable.(Romans 4:17 ".....God, who quickeneth the dead and calleth those things which be not as though they were").with all sins being gone thanks to Christ -Isaiah 38:17, thus, sins no longer count with God. 
    Any works of righteousness which we think bear upon gaining salvation are filthy rags -Isaiah 64:6. Good works are very necessary to get yourself a great reward from God, but totally unwanted if you have it in mind they bear upon the gift of salvation. Remember, it's a gift. Being saved is a gift. Being in God's family is a gift. After you've accepted the gift, what you now do, hopefully as a zealous family member, determines your lasting.(eternal).reward. 

Romans 8:29,30 "For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called and whom he called, them he also justified and whom he justified, them he also glorified.(it's as good as done when God says He'll do something)." 

2Thessalonians 2:13 ".....God has from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth."

God had predetermined that we would be called and obviously when -1Thessalonians 5:9 "For God has not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ." Ephesians 2:10 "For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God has before ordained that we should walk in them."Acts 13:48 ".....and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed." 1Peter 1:2 "Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ....."-And the rest?

The grace given unto us was given before the world began -2Timothy 1:9 "Who has saved us and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began."-...continue?
