Enjoy the Refreshing by Calling on the Lord (1)
Acts 3:20 So that seasons of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord and that He may send the Christ, who has been previously appointed for you, Jesus, Romans 10:12 ...for the same Lord is Lord of all and rich to all who call upon Him; Words of Ministry
[Part 1 of 2]
Many believers have never heard that they can enjoy the Lord. If we enjoy Christ, we shall have a season of refreshing. We can enjoy a season of refreshing simply by calling on the name of the Lord Jesus. Call "O Lord Jesus!" and you will be in a season of refreshing. We need to enjoy seasons of refreshing in our married life. For example, a sister may become angry with her husband. As a result, she is bound like the bent-doubled and Satan-bound woman in Luke 13:10-17. Often a wife may be "bent-double" because she is bound by the anger she feels for her husband. How can a sister be released from such bondage? She can be released simply by calling, "O Lord Jesus!" Whenever we are bound, we need to call on the Lord. Then we shall be able to say, "Amen, Lord Jesus! I am now in a season of refreshing." I encourage you to enjoy a season of refreshing by calling on the Lord's name. Some who have a great deal of theological knowledge may be unwilling to call on the name of the Lord. They may be afraid of "losing face." But we may need to lose our face in order to gain the Lord Jesus. What an enjoyment it is to call on His name! Sometimes I am beside myself with joy in the Lord when I call on Him and enjoy seasons of refreshing. Day by day, and throughout the day, we can enjoy seasons of refreshing simply by calling on the Lord.
