We’ve all done it—something bad happens, and our first reaction is to say, “Oh no!” But what if we replaced “Oh no!” with “O Lord!”?
Of course, there’s nothing wrong with saying “Oh no!” But when we call “O Lord,” something takes place within us that will never happen with any other exclamation—we contact the Lord Jesus in our spirit and experience Him in the midst of whatever we’re going through.
When we first believed in the Lord Jesus, we were saved in a once-for-all way; now, we can never be condemned by God. But the Lord also wants to save us in a daily way, and we can begin to experience this kind of salvation just by learning to call on His name.
Romans 10:12-13 says, “The same Lord is Lord of all and rich to all who call upon Him; for whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” The apostle Paul, who wrote these verses in Romans, passed through many hardships—for example, he was beaten, stoned, shipwrecked, and imprisoned.
While in prison, he wrote, “I know that for me this will turn out to salvation through your petition and the bountiful supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ” (Philippians 1:19). Paul was confident that his terrible situation would turn out to salvation because the believers were praying and because he was contacting the Lord.
Hallelujah, we can be saved in any situation by calling on the Lord!
