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.

GRACE

So often when my servant Paul addressed his letters to the various churches he had established, he used this greeting, "Grace, peace, and the mercy from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord be to you." Grace, peace, and mercy are Who I am and what I offer to you daily.
However, sometimes you do not take the time to receive these three things. You busy yourself with many things, but there is only one thing needed - to sit at My feet and allow Me to grace you with My grace, impart you with My peace, and deliver to you My mercy.

Take time every morning to allow Me to minister to you. When you take time to acknowledge My grace in your life by thanking Me for it, I will empower you to do what is naturally not in your power to do. When you thank Me for My peace, I am able to still your mind and give you the peace that even passes your natural understanding. When you thank Me for My mercy, you will feel My comfort throughout your day. You sing the song, "Take time to be holy, speak oft with your Lord." Holiness is not what you do. Holiness is who you are. Take time this morning to acknowledge that I and the Father are in you and then draw upon My grace, peace, and mercy.

INSTANT OBEDIENCE

Jesus told Judas that whatever he was to do to do it quickly. We are living in the last days, and I desire for My beloved to obey Me instantly. Otherwise, they may miss a divine opportunity that I have ordained. When you hear Me lead you to do or say something, do not wait. If you wait, those instructions may be forgotten because so many things today draw you away from an obedient walk with Me.

My Spirit never pushes or presses you to do or say anything. His still, quiet voice speaks to your inner man and leads you. Stay open to hear His voice moment by moment, and then do not hesitate to obey. When you do this, you will have a fruitful day.

ONE DAY AT A TIME

Many of My beloved feel overwhelmed, pressed down, and confused. This happens whenever you or others in My Kingdom think about the many tomorrows that they may face. I said, "That they may face." Sometimes you worry about things that may never happen.

I have told you many times not to play the "What If Game." This is a diabolical game the devil has designed to keep you bound with worry and fear. Rest assured that as you commit yourself faithfully to Me, your future is in My hands. I told My followers not to worry about tomorrow or even to think about the trouble that might come tomorrow. I told them to let tomorrow worry about its own things.

I challenge you this day to rejoice and be glad in this day that I have given to you as a gift. When you trust me completely, I will take care of your tomorrows.

MATTHEW 6:33-34

DIRECTION

Many are seeking direction in these days. However, many forget to come to Me to ask for directions. As long as you try to find your way in this life on your own, you will get hopelessly lost. I am a God of purpose and direction. I am your "Good Shepherd," Who will lead you in the paths that you must go. I go before you and prepare the way.

Never let a day go by that you do not come to Me and ask Me to direct your steps. I desire to put you in the right place at the right time. I desire to lead you to hearts that I have prepared to receive My good news. I have sent My Holy Spirit to lead you into all truth.

Living an aimless life without purpose or direction is never My plan for you. I am a detailed God, Who gives detailed directions. Listen to the still, quiet voice of My Holy Spirit moment by moment and you will be amazed at how your day will unfold.

CATCH UP

Some people have expressed their disappointment that I no longer am doing blog entries every day. In response to their desire for me to continue, I am making it my goal to at least put three blogs in weekly. Things have changed in our lives and we are traveling more. This makes it difficult for me to keep up with a daily blog, but God willing, I will be able to do three entries weekly.

We had a glorious time in Israel. Thank you all for your prayers. It took us a while to recover from the jet lag, but we are back on schedule. Believe it or not, we only went to two places that we have gone to on our prior trips. This was an all new trip that gave us the benefit of meeting many leaders in Israel and visiting many Mesianic congregations. We also got to pray over the borders of Lebenon and Syria. That was special. The weather was beautiful - cool, bright blue skies and the flowers were outstanding.

Here is my blog for today:

Delight yourself in Me and I will give you the desires of your heart. When you delight yourself in Me, you gain entrance to My Treasure House. I have a Treasure House in heaven that contains everything you will ever need in this life. This is why it is written that I am able to supply all of your needs according to My riches in glory. My riches in heaven are unlimited.

When you delight yourself in Me, I am able to plant what I desire for you in your heart. Then I always grant what I plant. I do grant the desires of the righteous because they desire to do My will instead of pleasing themselves.

Daily live a life of praise and I will provide all you need.
