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.

REQUESTS

I want you to have confidence daily that I hear your requests.  John wrote that if you ask anything according to My will that I not only hear you, but I also will grant the requests that you require of Me.

There are two wings that will send your prayers soaring into My Throne Room.  Those wings are FAITH AND FORGIVENESS.  When you pray with faith and doubt not, your prayers begin to soar rapidly into My throne room.  However, those prayers can be blocked from reaching My throne room if you have not forgiven all everything.

Paul exhorted believers to not be anxious about anything.  When you pray with fear and anxiety in your heart, your prayers do not reach Me.  Daily I want you to pray without fear or doubting.  I want you to pray believing and receiving with thanksgiving.  Make your requests known to Me today with thanksgiving, faith, and make sure that you have forgiven all those who have hurt you.

1 JOHN 5:14-15; PHILIPPIANS 4:6-7; MARK 11:25

TRINITY

It is hard for many to understand the fact that I am God in the flesh, and that My Father, My Holy Spirit and Me are one.  As you meditate on this mystery, I want to give you some thoughts concerning the Trinity.

Remember that you are created in My image. You are a spirit that is embodied in a temple of flesh.  I have given you a brain that can experience emotions and make decisions. In fact, no other creature has all of these attributes.

I am the Word of God made Flesh.  When My Father spoke, "Let there be light," I was there because I am the light of the world Who lights every one born into the world.  My Spirit has the ability to help you make decisions and feel emotions.  My Father is spirit, and I was sent to reveal in the flesh the very character of My Father.  Now it is up to you to reveal the character of the "Three in One."

GENESIS 1:3; JOHN 1:1-10

BACKGROUND

Before a person is hired for a job, the future employers usually require a background check.  Some may even require that the future employee be finger printed.

My servant Paul listed his background, and his background as a religious Jew was impressive.  However, he counted all of those things that would have gained him an entrance into the highest religious leadership positions as loss for Christ.

Paul had his priorities straight, and I want you to always have your priorities straight.  Position and power in this world mean nothing, but  your position with Me in heaven gains you the authority by My shed blood to bind every demonic spirit that oppresses you.  Rejoice today because you are seated with Me in heaven far above all principalities and powers.

PHILIPPIANS 3:4-7

REPRESENTATIVE

You are about to enter the season when you will be considering who will represent you in Congress.  When you make your choice, you want that representative to present your family, financial, and health welfare in a way that will cause you and your family to prosper and be in health for many years to come.

I am your representative before My Heavenly Father.  I present all of  your concerns to My Father and then we pray together in agreement about those concerns.

I am the perfect representative on your behalf because I became flesh and lived on Earth.  I know exactly how you feel because I was touched by all the feelings of your infirmities (your weaknesses).
Today express all of your concerns in prayer to Me, and I will perfect those concerns.

HEBREWS 4:15;  PSALM 138:8

RUSH

Most everyone in the age that you live seem to be in such a rush.  People rush to work with a cup of coffee in their hands.  They rush to try to complete projects.  Many believers even rush in the morning to squeeze in their quiet times with Me.

I want to remind you of how important it is to still your soul every morning.  This happens when you spend unrushed time with Me.  You do not have to spend hours with Me.  Only a few moments of silence before Me will help you to tune up your soul to hear My voice all the day long.

My servant David said that he stilled his soul like a weaned child.  A weaned child is not crying in desperation any longer for his parents to meet his needs.  Instead, he rests in the arms of his parents with the full assurance that they will take care of him.  This morning I want you to rest in My arms and release every care to Me.

PSALM 131:1-2

WISH

Wishing will not make it so. Many wish that things could be different in their lives.  However, nothing seems to change. Then discouragement sets in and usually you will hear a voice that says, "Things will never change."  That voice does not come from Me.  It comes from the devil.

There is only one thing in this life that will never change.  That one thing is My love for you.  My lover for you is everlasting.  I am the "Unchanging God."  I am the same yesterday, today, and forever.

Instead of wishing things could change in your life, begin to cry out to Me for wisdom.  Ask Me to show you promises in My Word that you can declare.  When you use the sword of My Spirit, My Word," in spiritual warfare by proclaiming My promises, you will see things change in your life.

HEBREWS 13:8

CONCERTS

This is the season when you can enjoy many outdoor concerts.  The combination of nature plus beautiful music is a little taste of heaven.  In heaven you will hear music like you never have heard before.  There will be harmony blended with grace and love plus instruments that were used when David was King. The heavenly landscapes will be beyond description.

Daily I give you small tastes of heaven, but often you never notice. Paul wrote that believers should set their affection upon things that are above and not on earthly things.  When you do this, you will be able to recognize those little tastes of heaven that I give you daily.

Today, watch for those small revelations of heavenly things, and your heart will sing for joy along with the angels who rejoice every time someone repents and comes to know Me.

COLOSSIANS 3:2; LUKE 15:7

SPEND

As you spend more time just waiting to hear My voice during your quiet times, you will become more dependent upon Me.

I long to see My beloved depend upon Me for everything just as an infant depends upon His parents to meet his every need.

What a joy I have when you ask Me to give you wisdom.  It is My delight to dispense wisdom daily to My beloved, but so few ask Me for wisdom.  Today, ask Me for wisdom about those things that are a concern to you.  Then I will be able to perfect all those things that are concerning you.

JAMES 1:5-6; PSALM 138:8

STAND

When you have prayed every prayer you know to pray, and you just run out of words to pray, it is time then just to begin to pray in  the Spirit and thank Me for hearing and answering.

Even when you do not see any manifestation of My intervention for you on Earth, rest assured that I am doing battle for you in the spiritual realm.  Remember Daniel and how he fasted and prayed, but he did not receive and answer until three weeks had past.

I sent My messenger to him to tell him to stand upright because the moment he made his request, I heard, but the answer was delayed because of the intense warfare in the spiritual realm.  Be at peace and stand and see the salvation (the wholeness) that I have already purchased for you manifested on Earth.  Whenever you pray, pray believing and receiving, and you will see the answer to your request.

DANIEL 10:11-14; LUKE 11:10; MARK 11:24

HOME

The saying that there is no place like home is a saying that many in the age you live cannot say.  So many families experience strife, abuse, and darkness.  My heart is to invade such homes with My light.

I am the light of the world Who lights every person born into the world.  However, sadly, many choose to walk in darkness rather than the light.  Many families are under curses because of the darkness that was entered by their past idolatrous generations. Those ancestral ties can be broken.

Light always penetrates the darkness. Pray that the light of My love and My good news will penetrate those hearts that have been broken because of abuse,  selfishness, and curses.  A nation is only as righteous as the families who stand for righteousness.  Today give praise that your family knows and loves Me.

JOHN 1:1-13

FAIR

It is difficult to understand why some people seem to have more troubles than others.  Many feel like I treat people unfairly..

I am no respecter of persons.  The rain falls on the just and the unjust. Keep in mind that you live in a fallen world that is on its way to complete destruction.  You are experiencing the beginning of sorrows that will usher in My return to Earth.  This means that there will be more troubles in the world as the days draw closer to My return.

I am not fair.  I am a just God Who at the end of time will rightly judge people on Earth.  I will judge not only the actions of people, but I also will judge their motives.  Praise Me today because I already see you as righteous because you received My righteousness in exchange for your unrighteousness.

MATTHEW 24:6

WHY?

When you go through trials, you wonder why there seem to be so many obstacles along the way.  Many call those obstacles setbacks.  However, I call those obstacles opportunities for Me to show Myself strong on your behalf.

I told you that when you face a mountain, you are in faith to speak to that mountain and say, "Be removed and cast into the sea." As you encounter obstacles that seem like huge mountains, shout to the mountain and tell it to move in My name..

Remember that I do not call you to survive, but I call you to overcome.  If there were no mountains, you would have nothing to overcome.  Revue the rewards I have for those who overcome mountains in the revelation that I gave John, and your heart will be at peace and filled with faith.

MATTHEW 21:21

GENUINE

When you go shopping for something special, you want to make sure that what you purchase is genuine.  It is always a disappointment when you discover that what you purchased turns out to be a fake.

How can you ever be sure that anything is genuine?  There is one thing that you can count on being genuine and that one thing is My love for you.

I purchased you with My shed blood that is more precious than gold.  I love you with an everlasting love that never fades.  Today think about how genuine My love for you is, and you will feel the warmth of My presence all day long.

1 PETER 1:18-21

RUSH

As I observe your age, I see how everyone is in a rush to do things.  Patience is a virtue that I seldom see.  Fast and furious are words that do not apply to My kingdom's work.

I designed the works for you to do from the foundation of the Earth.  At the end of time you will be judged for rewards according to the works that you completed.  My servant Paul knew how important it was to finish the work I had created him to do.

Paul reached a point in his life when he knew that his work was done.  He never rushed to complete the works I designed for him.  Instead, he simply gave every day to Me and asked Me to lead and guide him to do the next thing.  Faith can only work in the present moment, and Paul knew that.
Today, I want you to give Me the moments of your day, and then listen for My Holy Spirit to tell you the next thing to do. I then will enable you to complete every good work in My kingdom.

EPHESIANS 2:10

INFORMATION

You live in an age when you are flooded with information.  This can lead to confusion if you are not able to discern what is true information and what is false information.

There is only one way you can discern the true facts.  When Pilate asked Me what is truth, I did not answer.  However, he was looking at the One Who is all truth.  I am the way the truth and the life.

My Words are also truth.  My Word is powerful and when you not only read My Word, but you also mediate on My Word and declare My Word, you will have keen discernment to what facts are lies and what facts are true.  The measure of truth is in My Word.  Weigh all the information you receive with My Word, and you will not be easily deceived.

JOHN 18:38; HEBREWS 4:12

WEARY

I do not want you to grow weary of well doing.  When difficult circumstances do not seem to change and you begin to grow weary of facing the same daily challenges, I want you to draw from the wells of salvation within you.

You have fresh wells of the water of My Spirit that you can draw from when you need refreshing. I supply the wells, but you must supply the bucket to draw from those wells.  That bucket is your joy.  Therefore, with joy will you draw water from the wells of salvation.

I told My disciples three things that they could do that would guarantee that their joy would be full and that My joy would remain in them.  Those three things were to abide in Me, abide in My Word, and abide in My love.  Today do those three things, and you will not grow weary.

GALATIANS 6:9; ISAIAH 12:3; JOHN 15

BURDENS

I gave the invitation to My beloved to come to Me when they are heavy laden with burdens.  When you give Me your burdens and all of your cares, I promised to take your burdens so that you can have rest for your soul.

I also said that My burden is light.  As you give your burdens to Me, I never become overwhelmed by your burdens.  Your burdens comes to Me through your prayers and supplications.  The moment I receive your burdens I give those burdens to My Father as I intercede with perfect intercession about your burdens.

My burden is light in weight because I do not keep them. I share them with My Father.  When you give Me your burdens I also can shine My light of revelation knowledge and wisdom to you so that  you can make the right decisions about what concerns you.

MATTHEW 11:28-30; PSALM 138:8
