The loins are the pivotal point in the body, being between the ribs and the hip bone, and are understandably a sensitive area. In the Bible, loins sometimes refers to procreative power.

There is a war on and the devil would love to take you out. (Ephesians 6:12) Don’t let him! The only way to guard your destiny in God is to be continually surrounded by His truth.
