If I am approached by a person in need who asks me if I can help him financially, calling on the Lord softly will sink my heart into the presence of Christ:
"O Lord Jesus! Lord Jesus, this person is in need. O Lord Jesus! What would you have me to do? O Lord Jesus! Lord Jesus, I do not depend lean on my own wisdom. Lord Jesus, I lean on You Lord. O Lord Jesus!"
By calling on the Lord and praying in this tough situation, don't you realize that the Holy Spirit can grant you the wisdom to know how to handle the situation ?
Let's see if we can find an instance of someone seeking God's guidance while calling on the name of the Lord:
In First Kings 8 we read of Solomon calling on Jehovah and praying in the dedication of the newly built temple:
v23 - And he said, O JEHOVAH, God of Israel there is no god like You ...
v25 - And now, O JEHOVAH, God of Israel, keep with Your servant David my father that which You promised him ...
v26 - Now therefore, O God of Israel, may Your word that You spoke to Your servant David my father be confirmed.
v28 - ... you have regard to the prayer of Your servant and to his supplication, O JEHOVAH my God ...
v53 - ... You brought our fathers out of Egypt, O LORD JEHOVAH.
We can see interspersed with his petition are callings on the name of God - "O Jehovah ... , O Jehovah ... , O Lord Jehovah ..., O God of Israel,
Would you charge Solomon with being too self centered here ? Would you accuse Solomon of being too much for "feeling good" ?
The calling on the name of God strengthened his prayer, FOCUSED his petition, and FIXED his heart on God. And we may do exactly the same thing by calling "O Lord Jesus! O Lord Jesus! Lord Jesus" .
Then we see David calling on the Lord in his prayer also in Second Samuel 7:
v18 - Then King David when and sat before Jehovah ... O Lord Jehovah, ...
v19 - O Lord Jehovah; but You have spoken ...
v19 - is this the custom for man, O Lord Jehovah ?
v22 - O Lord Jehovah; for there is none like You, ...
v24 - ... and You, O Jehovah, became their God
v25 - And now, O Jehovah God, confirm forever the word ...
v27 - For You, O Jehovah of hosts, God of Israel ...
v28 - And now, O Lord Jehovah, You are God ...
v29 - ... for You, O Lord Jehovah, have spoken it ...
David's calling O Jehovah fully opened his heart to God, centered his focus on God rather than himself, and FIXED his FAITH in God. We can do the very same by calling again and again "O Lord Jesus! O Lord Jesus!". And our petitions, or praises, or confessions are anointed and FOCUSED on the Spirit of Christ.
Then we see Daniel calling repeatedly on the name of God in his prayer:
"O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen and take action! Do not delay, for You own sake, O my God; for Your city ..." (Daniel 9:19)
Were Daniel's callings on of "O Lord" selfish? No indeed. He was praying for Israel, Jerusalem, and the temple. He fortified his prayers with "O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen, ... O My God, ... Your citi"
You are making arbitrary complaints that are unfounded. There is no automatic rule that repetitive calling "O Lord Jesus! Lord Jesus! Lord Jesus!" HAS to be selfish.
Calling " Abba Father " is by the Holy Spirit in Romans 8 and in Galatians 4.
Calling "O Lord Jesus" is like calling "Abba Father" where it says - "And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, Abba Father!" (Gal. 4:6)
Either calling "O Lord Jesus! O Lord Jesus" or crying "Abba Father! Father. Abba Father" can be so much of the Holy Spirit. This is calling on the name of God.
When we call Lord Jesus we can be assured that this is in the Holy Spirit. For no one can say "Lord Jesus" except in the Holy Spirit.
"Therefore I make know to you that no one speaking in the Spirit of God says, Jesus is accursed; AND NO ONE CAN SAY, JESUS IS LORD! EXCEPT IN THE HOLY SPIRIT" (My emphasis - 1 Cor. 12:3)
"No one can say, Jesus is Lord! except in the Holy Spirit" So call out to Him "Lord Jesus! O Lord Jesus! O Lord Jesus! Jesus, You are Lord! Jesus is LORD! Oooo Lord JEEEESSSUUUSSSS, O Lord JESUS !!"
Try it readers. Try CALLING on the name of the Lord Jesus until you are brought into the presence of God.
