Gird Up Your Loins

“Now gird up your loins like a man; I will ask you, and you instruct Me.  Job 40:7

As we continue to work through the book of Job, Job is in a very bad state of mind right now. He’s been attacked by Satan at all angles, lost his family, his wealth, and now even his health is being attacked. He’s at the point of being suicidal, cursing the day he was born. Job is as low as you can get right now

However God has a strong response for Job “Now gird up your loins like a man”

The term “Gird Up Your Loins” means to prepare and strengthen oneself for what is to come according to dictionary.com

God is telling Job , Stop having a pity party for yourself and get up because I’m about to bless you beyond your comprehension

Even though its natural for us to get down when things are not going well. Its easy to get depressed, anxious, stressed out, and even suicidal. God wants us to remain strong even in the storm. Even when Satan has attacked us from every angle, remember that God is still in control and we have the ultimate victory

I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength Philippians 4:13

Remember you are not alone, don’t live in fear and defeated, turn to the One who has created the Heavens and Earth in Jesus Name Amen
