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.

THANKSGIVING

This is a time to cry out to Me.  Paul exhorted the church to "Be anxious for nothing, but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God."
One of the definitions of supplication is loud crying.

As you cry out to Me in these days, be sure to include thanksgiving as part of your prayers.  When you thank Me as you make your requests, you are demonstrating your faith in this truth that I not only have heard your prayers, but I have also granted your requests.

Today, I want you to think of several things that you can thank Me for even in the midst of this crisis.
Think about how I am using this crisis to draw people together rather than apart.

PHILIPPIANS 4:6; 1 JOHN 5:14-15

PROMISE

During this time when so many are fearful and worried about the pandemic that is taking place worldwide, fill yourself with My promises.  All the promises I make, I fulfill.  Review  the promises that I have spoken in My Word like, "I will be with you always even until the end of the world."

Every promise is yes and amen in Me.  The first part of the word, "pandemic," is "pan."  A god that many worshiped long ago was a god called Pan. The origin of the word, "panic," is rooted in the name of this god.

In these days, I do not want you to panic or be fearful.  My Word contains more than 365 exhortations to be not afraid.  When you spend more time reviewing My promises instead of listening to the latest news, My peace will invade your soul.

2 CORINTHIANS 1:20; MATTHEW 28:20

FRANCHISE

I gave you this unusual English word this morning for a reason. The word, "franchise," means freedom from restrictions. It also can mean a special right that is given to a person or group of people.

When I died to forgive you of all of your sins (past, present, and future), My Father gave you the right to receive My righteousness in exchange for your own self-righteousness. 

Sin always brings death and the right to be forgiven all of your sins that I purchased for you with My own shed blood means that you have been liberated to enjoy life (abundant life on Earth that extends to eternal life). My Father sent Me into the world so that whoever believes in Me might be saved. I am the way, the truth, and the life.  No man comes to the Father but by Me.

JOHN 3:16-17, JOHN 14:6

MISINTERPRET

With all that is going on as you listen to various opinions about this worldwide virus, it is so easy to misinterpret what is being said.  There are many rumors and misinformation.  Even the factual information is hard to interpret.

I want you focus on what will lift you up at this time instead of drowning yourself in the media, news, and bad reports. Put your focus on Me, and then seek wisdom from the principles and promises that are contained in My Word.

Wisdom is applied knowledge.  Before you read My Word, ask My Holy Spirit to interpret it to you, and then there will be no misinterpretation.  My disciples often misinterpreted the words I told them, but after My Spirit became alive within them, what I told them before finally was interpreted correctly.

MATTHEW 16:5-12

RESILIENT

During this time of trial, I want you to have resilient faith.  The definition of resilience is the ability to bounce back after being pressed and stretched.  It is the ability to recover strength and to have good humor spiritually even during trials.

As you look to Me, you can receive this resilient faith.  Paul wrote: "I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me: and the life that I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.  You live by My faith within you.

I gave Myself to you so that you can have resilient faith.  It is only through depending upon Me during this crisis that you will be able to bounce back after being pressed to the limit.  Press into Me in prayer today, and receive from Me the resilient faith you need, not only to get through this crisis, but also to receive My peace, love, and joy in the midst of this crisis.

POLLUTION

Whenever there is pollution in the atmosphere, it is difficult to see two feet in front of you.  There is pollution in the atmosphere right now during this virus crisis.  My enemy is the prince and power of the air, and he loves to pollute the atmosphere.

Right now he is polluting the atmosphere with words that cause panic through the media and through what people are saying.  Curses are negative words pronounced over others.  Daily such curses are being spoken over you and others in this world.

Only My Word declared out loud can break those curses.  Today clear the atmosphere around you by singing praise songs and hymns that declare My might and power.  Read Psalm 91 and Psalm 65 out loud today and whatever heaviness or fear My enemy as sent you will clear the atmosphere.

EPHESIANS 2:2; PSALM 65, 91

FAMILY

My Father, the Holy Spirit, and I were the first family.  We all work together as One, and we are all God.  God is love and without others, we have no one to love. I am a relational God.

When asked what was the greatest commandment, I responded: "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all  your mind. This is the first and great commandment.  And the second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself."

You were created in My image which means you were created to be in a family.  I told Adam and Eve to be fruitful and multiply.  All those who believe in Me as their Lord and Savior and receive the forgiveness for their sins become My sons and My daughters.  During this crisis, I want My sons and daughters to gather unto Me to praise Me because you all are accepted as My beloved family.

MATTHEW 22:36-39; EPHESIANS 1:6
