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.

CANCEL

You rejoice when a debt you have owed is canceled.  You have the opportunity daily to cancel debts.  I do not mean monetary debts.

When I died on the tree, I said, "It is finished."  I was saying that your debt had been paid.  I canceled the debt of sin that you owed Me, and I offered the world the opportunity to be forgiven.  I became the perfect sacrifice that satisfied My Father as a payment for the sins of the world.

Now, because you believe in Me and receive My forgiveness, you can pay this forward by forgiving those people who have sinned against you.  Then pray a blessing over these people. You then will rejoice.

REMIT

You are a royal priest.  I know this is hard for you to believe, but that is what My Word says about you.  After My resurrection, I appeared to My disciples and breathed into them My Holy Spirit.  I said, "Receive the Holy Spirit." This is when they were born of My Spirit.

After I breathed My Spirit into My disciples, I said, "Whosoever sins you remit, they are remitted unto them, and whosoever sins you retain, they are retained."  Only I can forgive sins, but as My priest you can forgive others with My forgiveness.

I have given you that priestly role. Whenever you retain another person's sins instead of forgiving them, you will be bound. Confess their sins, forgive, and release their sins to Me and you will be free.

1 PETER 2:9; JOHN 20:23

FATE

I often hear this phrase, "It is just fate that we met."  When you are in My kingdom on Earth, and you are seeking to do My will daily, nothing in your life is just fate.

I have plans for you and they are all good.  They are designed to give you a purpose in life and a beautiful destiny.  During your life on Earth, I am daily performing My will through you.  I am daily helping you complete the works I have prepared for you to accomplish.

I want you to look at each day as My day to show forth My glory thru you.  Every day I have chosen you to share My love and good news with others.  Remember fate had nothing to do with the people you meet during the day.  I am the one who gives you many divine appointments with others.

JEREMIAH 29:11

COMPROMISE

When people compromise, they are willing to meet someone half way. Hidden in this word, "compromise" is the word, "promise."  There are many promises in My Word, but in order to have those promises fulfilled in your life, you cannot compromise.

Some of the promises in My Word are unconditional, but many of them require that you do your part.  For example, I promise to draw near to you if you will draw near to Me. This is one promise that I do not want you to compromise.

My commandment is that you love Me with all of your heart and that you love others as I have loved you.  My love is unconditional. In order to love others with My love, you need to daily ask My Holy Spirit to fill you with My love.

JOHN 15:10; ROMANS 5:5

ADMIT

It is not easy to admit that you were wrong.  Sometimes you even have to admit that you have hurt others by your behavior.  However, My Word says to confess your sins to one another so that you may be healed.

Healing of past hurts in your own life and the lives of others that you have wounded is not easy.
What do you need to do when you know you have hurt others and even condemned yourself for doing so?

Confess you wrongdoing.  Ask those you have hurt to forgive you. Then release them to Me and pray for them.  Only I can heal their hurts. You will dig a well of discouragement in your soul if you keep replaying what you have done wrong in your mind. This is what My enemy wants you to do. Pray for them daily, and do not allow My enemy to condemn you.

JAMES 5:16

EXCEPTION

It is the nature of human beings to take exception to direct commands because they do not want to follow direct orders.  Often they seek a way to disobey.

This has been the case since the fall of mankind.  Adam and Eve were given a direct order not to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil.  Immediately My enemy gave them the idea that My Father was withholding something good from them.

I gave a direct order when I said to love one another as I have loved you.  You need the help of My Holy Spirit to do this.  If you do not make exception to this commandment and ask My Holy Spirit to help you to love others as I love you, My peace, joy, and grace will abound in your life.

JOHN 13:34

DETERMINED

I determined the works that you are to accomplish in life before you were born.  I want you to be determined to accomplish those works before you come to be with Me.

Daily, I want you to commit your works to Me so that My Spirit can establish your thoughts.  Then inquire of Me before you make decisions about what to accomplish in a day's time.  Your schedule may change completely, but be open to the change.

You are in the last days, and I have prepared the hearts of many to receive My good news.  Many of those who trust Me also need a word of encouragement.  I want to use you as My messenger.  Let My Spirit lead you today.

EPHESIANS 2:10
