SOMMER FAMILY BLESSING

Welcome to the blog for Linda Sommer.

My Blog will cover three subjects:

WORD FROM THE LORD, FAMILY, and MINISTRY.

WORD FROM THE LORD
Every day I spend time with the Lord in the morning and He speaks to my heart words that are encouraging, exhorting and sometimes rebuking.

At first, I felt not to share these words with others, but then I realized I am just one of His followers. There are many people who need a word daily from the Lord, but they do not have the time to seek Him. This is why I decided to share the words I received from time to time. The messages are in first person as the the Lord relayed them to my spirtual ears.

FAMILY
We have three sons and nine grandchildren. There is something new happening all the time in the Sommer family. I will post some of these events of interest.

MINISTRY
Tom and I have traveled the world. To find out more about our ministry you may consult our webpage -
http://www.voiceofthesword.com/.
I will keep you updated on future speaking enagements and ministry developments.

RETAINING

I had hoped that all the teachings I gave to My disciples would be retained in their memory.  However, that was not the case.  It was not until My Holy Spirit was breathed into them that they began to understand that it was My Father's will to gift Me to the world as a sacrifice for the sins of the whole world.

After the Holy Spirit came upon them in power, they then were able to have that special anointing that enabled them to not only retain My teachings, but also to share and write about those teachings.

The Holy Spirit was given to bring all things to the remembrance that I had taught them through the little over three years that I walked on Earth.  Today, ask My Holy Spirit to help you retain what you learn from My Word as you read it daily.

JOHN 14:26

FLEE

There are several verses in My Word that mention the word, "flee."  Paul warned Timothy to flee youthful lusts.  Seducing spirits are on the prowl to capture the young generation, but he will have no success if young people will refuse to open the door when Satan knocks on door of the three lusts that all mankind have.

Those three lusts are the lust of the flesh (seeking to satisfy our five senses in an addictive way); the lust of the eyes (the imaginations and longings in our minds); and the lust of the pride of life (putting our trust in ourselves and the world system more than we put our trust in God).

There is a promise of God that includes this word, "flee." Isaiah prophesied that the redeemed of the Lord will return to Zion with songs of joy and gladness, and sorrow and mourning will flee away. Today sing to the Lord all the day long, and you will be protected against the plan of the enemy to take advantage of your lusts and still your joy.

2 TIMOTHY 2:22; ISAIAH 35:10

DIFFERENCE

I have heard the expression, "What difference does it make?"  People usually say this when they do not understand that everything in this life does make a difference.

What you do and say in this life can make a difference in your family relationships, your church relationships, your work relationships, and even strangers you may meet today.  Most of all what you do and say daily can make a huge difference in My kingdom on earth.

When you accepted Me as your Lord and Savior, I made an eternal difference in your life.  On the day you were born of My Spirit, you entered My kingdom that is filled with My righteousness, My peace, and My joy.  Now I challenge you today to make a difference in many lives by sharing with them what a difference I have made in your life.

ROMANS 14:17

TRAVEL

When you are about to travel to a place, you need to know your destination, and you also need to make all the needed preparations for your trip.

You can praise Me today because you do know where your final destination will be. It is beyond your natural mind to envision your travel to heaven, but rest assured you will safely be escorted by My angels to be with Me for all eternity.

Today I want you to set your affections on the things that are above, instead of focusing on the things of this earth.  Although, I do not want you to be so  heavenly minded that you are no earthly good.
The  preparation for your final journey is simple.  Abide in Me. Abide in My Word, and abide in My love.  When you do those three things daily, I will greet you at your final destination with, "Well done, My good and faithful servant."

COLOSSIANS 3:2; JOHN 15

VISIONS

My Word says that old men will dream dreams and that young men will see visions.  My Word also says that without a vision, people perish.

I want you always to have a vision.  Ask Me to give you a faith vision for yourself.  A faith vision will help you see what I want you to accomplish in My kingdom in the future.  Faith is the evidence of things not seen.  You cannot predict your future, but your days are all written in your Book of Life.

When you ask Me to give you a faith vision, I am then able to give you the steps of faith that you need to take to fulfill the works that I have designed for you to do on Earth.  Write down the vision I give you and make it clear.  You will then see that vision unfold before your eyes.

TREMBLE

There are many things in your life that can cause you to tremble.  Fear sometimes causes you to tremble.  A bad report about the loss of your health or a job can cause you to tremble.

There is something, however, that is eternal that can cause you to tremble.  My Word is eternal, and if you are not walking in My light, it is designed to make you tremble so much that you will repent of whatever darkness you allowed to rob you from being a shining light for Me on this Earth.

The children of Israel trembled at My commandments because they realized how they willingly disobeyed My commandments. The psalmist David wrote: "My flesh trembles for fear of You, and I am afraid of Your judgments." Pray for those you know today who need to repent of walking in their flesh instead of walking in My Spirit. Also examine your own heart.

PSALM 119:120

APPROVAL

People usually seek the approval of others, and this is why they seek to please others.




People who seek the approval of others often fall into the pattern of being "people pleasers."  Whenever you seek to please others just to gain their approval, you are in pride.  Pride is always self-seeking.

I want you to seek to please Me, but never seek to please Me to gain My approval.  I already approve of you.  I see you perfect and complete in Me.  I gave My life to purchase you both eternal forgiveness and eternal approval.

If you want to please Me, allow My presence within you to be demonstrated to others by acts of faith. Without faith, it is impossible to please Me. Have complete faith in Me, and recognize that without Me you can do nothing.  In Me you live and move and have your being.

HEBREWS 11:6; JOHN 15:5; ACTS 17:28
