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.

MONEY

So many of My beloved get into arguments with their mates about money.  I spoke a great deal about money when I walked on Earth.  When there is financial difficulty in your life, come to Me. I am all wisdom, and I can give you creative ways to get out of debt.

Paul exhorted My followers to "owe no man but to love him."  The burden of being in debt can be an overwhelming concern, but I can perfect those things that are a concern to you.

Release to Me your cares about finances, and then receive My wisdom.  I desire for you to journey through life without the cares of this world.  Peter learned to humble himself before Me by casting all of his cares to Me.

ROMANS 13:8; 1 PETER 5:6-7; PSALM 138:8

MILES

You are on a journey to where I live with My heavenly Father and all the precious people who have believed in Me.  I do want you to look forward to seeing Me face to face and also your loved ones who are with Me.  However, I want you to focus on the miles as your journey through life.

I know that sometimes you feel like you have many more miles to go on Earth, but I want you to see those miles as moments.  You began eternity with Me when you came to know Me as your Lord and Savior.  You are living moment by moment in My presence.  Cherish each moment and embrace those moments as opportunities to share My love with others.

I am not miles away from you.  Live in My presence and live in the moment that I have given you.  Love in the moment with My love to others and rejoice that you have another day (24 hours) to spend with Me.  When you do this, you will discover the joy in the journey.

JOHN 17:3

WEAPONS

I have given you many weapons for you to use against My enemy.  However, do you realize that I have created you to be a weapon to destroy the works of the devil.

Isaiah wrote: "Behold I will make you into a new threshing sledge with sharp teeth; you shall thresh the mountains and beat them small, and make the hills like chaff.  You shall winnow them, the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them; You shall rejoice in the Lord, and glory in the Holy One of Israel (Isaiah 41:15-16)."

I am that Holy One of Israel Who Isaiah prophesied about many years before I came to Earth.  I came to destroy the works of the devil, and I have given you the power in My name also to destroy the works of the devil.  Later Isaiah called you a instrument for My work.  You are the spoiler to destroy.
Be that weapon today.

ISAIAH 41:15-16; 54:16

ENTITLED

So many who live in your day have a sense of entitlement.  They feel like they are entitled to live their lives anyway they please as long as they do not harm other individuals.  Such people have no idea of what they are truly entitled to if they become believers in Me.

Because you are a believer in Me, you are entitled to all the riches of My glory.  You are entitled to My peace that passes all understanding, My joy that is full of glory, and My love that is everlasting.  You are entitled to My total inheritance because you are a joint heir with Me.  You are entitled to My righteousness.

I paid the price of My own shed blood to purchase you all these blessings you are entitled to receive.  Meditate on what I have provided for you.  When you recognize all that you are entitled to receive not only in this life, but also in the life to come, you will live in continual thanksgiving with a heart that is willing to serve not only Me, but also others.

INNER

It is so easy to look at the outward appearances of people to determine your judgment of them.  I never look on the outward appearances.  The outward appearance of My disciples was not what attracted Me to them.  I could see their hearts.

You do not have that ability to see the hearts of others.  I am concerned with the inner man.  Many of the religious leaders I encountered when I was on Earth were attractive in their appearance, but I told them that their inner person was full of dead men's bones.

Sometimes you may appear to be weary on the outside, but be assured that I am renewing your inner man day by day.  All you have to do is tap into My Spirit within you, and you will be energized to meet whatever you may face in a day's time.

MATTHEW 23:27; 2 CORINTHIANS 4:16

AHEAD

I know exactly what lies ahead of you.  That fact should comfort you because you should never be afraid of what lies ahead of you in the future.  I do have a blueprint for your life, and I always complete what I begin.

I am the author and finisher of your faith, and all of My purposes for your being on Earth will be fulfilled as you yield yourself to My Spirit moment by moment.  I exhorted My followers not to think about tomorrow.  Tomorrow has enough troubles, and you certainly do not have to try to figure out what those troubles will be.

Know assuredly that I do hold your tomorrows, and that you are hidden with Me in My Father's heart.  This is a safe place to be.  With all the troubles in the world today, you can imagine all kinds of "what if scenarios," but that will not bring you peace.  Focus on Me and My good plan for you today, tomorrow, and for all eternity.

MATTHEW 6:34

SITUATION

How you accept situations in your life will determine whether or not you can hear from Me.  I am always speaking to you, and I sent My Holy Spirit to lead and guide you through every situation that you may face in your life.  However, if you try to fix the situations without My help, you will not be able to receive My Holy Spirit's instructions.

I want you to accept every situation as a gift from Me.  If it is a situation that you consider as a great trial, trust Me to work both My will and My power through that trial.  I know that this statement makes no sense in the natural., but being content in every situation is the key to hearing from Me.

When your heart is to go My way and to obey Me moment by moment, everything in your life is either ordained by Me or allowed by Me for My purpose to be fulfilled in you.  There are no accidents in your life.  You will always be able to receive My best for you in every situation when you can hear the wisdom and instructions that I give to you.  I am beautiful for every situation.

PSLAM 48:2

RACE

Life is not a race.  Life is a step by step revelation of My light as I lead you in paths of righteousness for My name's sake.  The writer of Hebrews did exhort believers to "run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God."

I certainly did not race to the cross, nor did I race when I walked the Sea of Galilee.  The race has nothing to do with the steady walk in obedience to My Spirit's leadings.  The race that is set before every believer is the race to bring in this final harvest. 

This race began when I walked on Earth.  The end of this race is near.  Time is short.  Take every opportunity today to share My good news with others.  The fields are truly white for harvest.  Pray for laborers to enter this race and keep on the track that I have set before you.

COMMON

The word, "common," can be a derogatory word or a positive word. I call no man common or unclean.  Everyone born is precious to Me.  After I ascended to heaven, My disciples decided to share their incomes and possessions in common with one another.  Kibbutz homes in Israel do the same.  I recognize that with the population you are now experiencing in this world, sharing all things in common would be an impossibility.  Sharing things in common spiritually is exemplary.

Today is your birthday, and I desire for you to be fruitful in the years ahead to fulfill My call which is to be a voice to share My Word in writing, teaching, and singing. 

Everyone in My body on Earth have a common call.  The major common call that all who believe in Me have is to share My good news (the gospel) to as many people as possible.  I challenge everyone who reads what I have spoken to you this morning to fulfill that excellent common calling.

ACTS 4:32, 10:28; JUDE 3

WHY?

I love to watch four year olds who constantly ask the question, "Why?"  At that age their learning curve really increases.  I also love for My beloved who are adults to ask Me "Why?'.  I always stand ready to answer the questions that you relay to Me.

Some of the answers to those questions will have to wait until I see you face to face.  In the mean time keep asking Me "Why?". I will do My best to give you an answer that you can comprehend.

I have heard you ask the question, "Why do we have to wait to have our glorified bodies?"  You always add, "Really, Lord, I need that body now!"  If Adam and Eve had not disobeyed My Father in the garden, that question would be irrelevant.  When sin entered the world, the whole world and  human bodies began the process of aging.  When sin entered, death also entered.  For now, take care of your body and look forward to the day when you will be forever young.

ROMANS 5:17-19

ACESS

You have immediate access into My throne room because the veil of My flesh was rent to pull down the veil that separated you from My Father.  This was My gift to you.  When I died on the tree, I shed My blood as the lamb of God.  I became not only your High Priest, but I also became the perfect sacrifice that satisfied My Father's requirements to reconcile you to Him.

It was My joy to give you the gift of reconciliation.  Now, you can pray to My Father in My name and find immediate access to My throne to find grace in your time of need.

Never take for granted this precious gift of access to My throne room..  For the joy that was set before Me, I endured the cross to open the door wide for you to have complete fellowship with both Me and My Father. Rejoice today and enjoy that access moment by moment throughout the day.

HEBREWS 9:24-28; 12:2

RENEWAL

Renewal is My business.  There is no way that you can experience renewal of your walk in the Spirit without My help.  However, there are things that you can do to cooperate with My Spirit.  Paul gave good instructions to My beloved on how to stay filled with the Spirit.


He exhorted believers to sing spiritual songs. psalms. and hymns, and to make melody in their hearts continually.  He also encouraged believers to remain in thanksgiving. 


When you follow Paul's instructions, I will give you an abundance of grace and anointing to empower you to be renewed in the Spirit.


EPHESIANS 5:18-20

MERCY

My mercy is from everlasting to everlasting.  At the same time, I am a just God.  My Father can no wise clear the guilty,  However, all that changed when I became the perfect sacrifice for the siNs of the world.


Now those who believe in My death, My resurrection, and My ascension can boldly enter My throne room of grace.  Those who believe in Me are now justified (just as though they never sinned) by their faith in Me.


It is My joy to be the One Who made it possible for you to come to the mercy seat and receive grace in your time of need.  I always mete My justice with mercy.  Rejoice today because you no longer have to beg for My mercy.  You have My mercy for all eternity.


HEBREWS 4:16

REJOICE

I rejoice over you with singing! I want you to rejoice over Me, yourself and others with singing also.  One of the main ways to stay filled with My Spirit is to sing songs, spiritual songs and psalms. 


I love to hear you sing songs of praise to me every morning,  After you sing to Me, then wait in silence and train your spiritual ears to hear Me sing to you.  As you intercede for others, listen to hear Me sing a song over those people.


Songs of praise lifted on behalf of others to Me break spiritual bondages in those people.  Songs of praise invades the spiritual realm and causes the devil's plans for people to be put to confusion and to dissolve. I inhabit the praises of My people.

BRIDGES

I have called all my beloved to be bridges.  My beloved are called to first bridge people with Me.  The early priests were bridges.  They offered sacrifices and confessed the sins of the people  They made a connection with My Father. 


I came to be the perfect bridge between My Father and you.  When I died for your sins, I reconciled all those who believe in Me to My Father.  Now I have given you the ministry of reconciliation.


Peter called those who believed in Me a royal priesthood, a holy nation.  The Hebrew word for priest is bridge. Today, I want you to fulfil your priestly role by praying and interceding for those who yet need to come to Me.  You can set people on the eternal bridge I have provided them whenever you share My good news with them. 


2 CORINTHIANS 5:181 PETER 2: 9.
