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 -

I will keep you updated on future speaking enagements and ministry developments.

DIGNITY

I gave you this word this morning because this word describes Me.  The definition of "dignity" is worthiness, nobility, high position, rank and title.

I am seated at the right hand of My Holy Father. This is My position. I am far above all principalities and powers.  My rank is "Captain of the Heavenly Hosts." My title is "King of Kings, and Lord of Lords."I am worthy of all praise.

Today I want you to meditate on the position that I share with you. You are seated with Me in heavenly places because I am in you and you are in Me.  I have given you the authority in My name to break the power of My enemy. .Use that authority today.

EPHESIANS 1:17-23, 2:5-6

VALIANT

I stand by to give you the power to do valiantly and to give you the prayers that will dispel the enemy.  Because you trust in Me, and you do not trust in the arm of flesh, you will see My power displayed in troubled times.

It is My delight to do battle for you, and I am a valiant warrior.  Vain is the help of those who do not trust in Me.

I will tread down every enemy that is coming against you.  I have not given you a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind.  Today allow My Spirit of power, love, and a sound mind to perform valiant deeds thru your earthly vessel.

PSALM 60:11-12; 2 TIMOTHY 1:7

EDIFYING

Often you will encounter people who speak about subjects that are not edifying.  I want your speech always to edify the listener.

You may ask, "How can I develop this type of speech?"  You simply have to follow the exhortations My servant Paul gave to the Philippian church. He exhorted them to only think about those things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report, virtuous, and praise worthy.

You usually speak what you are thinking about.  When you pass Paul's "Think Test," you will also pass the "Talk Test."  Fill your mind with edifying thoughts today, and your speech will bless others.

PHILIPPIANS 4:8

REALITY

Sometimes facing reality is extremely difficult.  However, I want you to call those things that are not as though they are.  This takes faith, and faith comes by hearing and hearing by My Word.

When you are going through a difficult trial I want you to abide in My word.  Read My Word out loud, and especially concentrate on my promises.

I do not want you to look at the things that are seen when you are experiencing a great trial.  Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.  I want you to focus on My presence with you.  I want you to seek My face, and know that I am always face to face with you.
I never turn My back on you,.  I will see you through every trial.

HEBREWS 11:1

ENDURANCE

I gave you the word, "endurance," this morning because most people can remember the trials that they had to endure in the past.  Right now you are experiencing a trial that seems unending.

Do not allow My enemy to discourage you.  I am the strength of your life, and I live within you.  Think of the many trials I had to endure in order to purchase your salvation with My very own blood.
That quality of endurance is in you because I live within you.

Whenever you weaken and feel like you cannot endure one more minute of your trial, tap into My endurance.  I am durable and you are durable because of My joy.  Allow My joy to well up within you and strengthen you, and take heart.  The end of this trial will come.  Until then, stay in thanksgiving and praise because I am infusing you daily with My endurance.

PSALM 136;JOHN 6:27

RESCUE

When you are going through a trial sometimes you feel like a drowning person who yells in desperation, "Help! Save Me."  I am Your Savior and I truly am the One Who hears your cry.

Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but I deliver them from them all. The moment you cry out to Me, I hear your cry, and I begin the battle to deliver you.

My adversary, the devil, wants to hinder you in every way from spreading My good news to the world. Take heart!  He is a defeated foe.  I won the battle over him and his demons on the cross.  Your part is to take authority over his plans.  When Daniel fasted and cried out for his nation, it took three weeks before he received the answer because there was spiritual warfare that delayed his reception of that answer.

PSALM 34:19; DANIEL 10:1-12

FORGETTING

As you look back over your life, it is so easy  to forget how My hand was upon you from the day you were born.  This is why I want you to write down those moments when I revealed My hand upon you.

Those things you could write down will reveal how active I am in your life and how I am a God of details.  For example, that friend you just happened to see in the store when you went shopping, and how your talk with that friend was edifying.

What you write down could be as simple as My leading you to find something that was lost when you prayed out loud, "All things lost found in My name."  You will see how I weave so many blessings throughout your day,and you will end your day rejoicing.

PSALM 103
