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.

REFINE

The refining process often is not pleasant, especially the refining process of your spiritual life.  You are predestined to be conformed to My image.  It is My Holy Spirit Who is the refiner.

Your part in the refining process is to be pliable in the hands of My Spirit.  If you resist His work in you, then He will resist you.  This is not at all pleasant.

My exhortation to you is that every morning you commit the members of your body to be used as instruments of My righteousness, peace, joy and love.  I am the potter and you are the clay.  A potter may have to put the clay on a spinning wheel over and over again, until He is pleased with the results.
ROMANS 8:29, 6:13

BREATH

It is not until you experience a breathing problem that you are so grateful for the next breath.  If ever you experience this problem, I want you to ask My Holy Spirit to help you to breathe.  My Holy Spirit is the breath of God and He is able to help you breathe.

Daily My Holy Spirit awaits the opportunity not only to help you take the next breath, but also to help you breathe in His anointing.  Few of My beloved take the time to just sit quietly in My presence.  When you do take that time in silence, listen for the still voice of My Spirit.

After listening, I want you to ask My Spirit to anoint you afresh in the morning.  Then breathe in My anointing.  When you do this your spirit and your body will be in rhythm with My heart beat.

PSALM 33:6;

OFF

I know how you check to be sure that everything in your house is off before you leave it.  You do this to prevent any fires and also to save electricity.

As you are turning everything off in your house today before you leave, there is something that I want you turn off.  I want you to turn off or put off your old man and dress yourself in the new man.

My servant Paul learned that he daily had to reckon himself dead to sin and alive to Me. This morning declare out loud, "I put off the old man and I dress Myself in the new man.  Lord, you are the new man.  Help Me to keep the old man off all day long.

COLOSSIANS 3:9; ROMANS 6:11

COMPREHEND

My friend Paul prayed that the church at Ephesus might comprehend My love.  My love is beyond your mental ability to comprehend.

When I revealed My character to Moses, I passed by him and declared My character sketch.
I declared that I am a God of mercy, truth, grace and forgiveness.

Paul prayed that the church might comprehend the length, the width, the height, and the depth of My love.  The length of My love is My mercy because it is extended to every generation.  The width of My love is My truth because My truth sets you free.  The height of My love is My grace because it comes from My throne room of grace.  The depth of My love is My forgiveness because I can go deep into every heart and forgive every sin (past, present, and future).  Meditate on My love today.

EXODUS 34:6-7; EPHESIANS 3:16-21

CONSTANT

There are very few things in your life that are constant.  Situations and circumstances can change daily.  Sometimes you may feel that a health issue will never get better.  It is hard for people who are in constant pain to believe that the pain will cease.

The truth, however, is that things can change in your life overnight.  There are two things in your life that will always be constant.  Those two things are My love for you and My Word.

Cling to those two unchanging things today, and you will have an anchor for your soul that will keep you from wavering in faith.

COLOSSIANS 3:2

CUSTOM

There are many definitions for custom.  There are certain customs in countries that people observe.  You can purchase merchandise that is custom made.  Both of these uses of this word can relate to My your eternal destination and My eternal love for you.

The country you live in since you believed in Me is the Kingdom of God.  You are a citizen of heaven.  The customs in heaven are glorious.  The main custom in heaven is worshipping Me for all eternity.

My love for you is custom made.  You are unique, and I know your heart completely.  I have designed your life to help you grow in intimacy with Me.  Of course, you still have free will. You can decide whether or not to follow My designated, designed plan for you.  Choose today to follow My plan simply by asking My Holy Spirit to help you be on the same page He is on as He reads your Book of Life.

PSALM 139

DELAYS

Throughout your life, you have experienced delays: delays in traffic, delays in answered prayer, delays in healing, and many other delays.  Often you cannot understand why these delays happen.

Daniel had the same problem.  He was praying for his nation, and he had even fasted for three weeks. Still he heard nothing from My throne room until I sent an angel to explain the delay.  The explanation was that the delay occurred because there was warfare in the spirit realm.

The good news is that My angel told him that from the moment he prayed I heard his prayer. At that very moment I began to battle with My angels in the spirit realm.  Daniel received his explanation for the delay, and he also received the answer to his prayer.  When you release your concerns to Me, I immediately take up the battle for you, and I always win.  The battle is Mine and the victory is yours.

THINGS

Whenever you have to move to a smaller home, you have to discern what things to discard and what precious things to take to your future home.  You will not have that worry when you are about to leave this earth.

You can take nothing with you to your future home in heaven.  However, there are a few things that will be waiting for you in heaven.  All the prayers you have prayed will be recorded in the Book of Remembrance.  All the people you have witnessed to will be waiting to thank you when you reach heaven.

The two most precious things that you hold dear on Earth will also be there.  My presence will be there and My Word will be there.  While you are still on Earth hold fast to those two things because you will have them for all eternity.

MALACHI 3:16

LAST

When good experiences happen in life, you often want to repeat those experiences or have them supernaturally last forever.  I know how you treasure those times when My presences is so real and  you want that feeling to last forever.

When you have those times with Me that are so precious, I want you to begin to thank Me for providing a way that you can have precious times in My presence for all eternity.

You used to sing a song, "I have a longing in My heart for Jesus.  Just to be near Him and to feel His presence."  Today spend just a few moments with Me and know that even without feeling My presence I am near to you, and I will be near to you throughout this lifetime and all eternity.

PSALM 16:11

REALITY

Sometimes it is hard to face reality when circumstances become difficult.  It is during those times that I want you to turn to My Word.  I want you to face every circumstance in life with the faith that overcomes every obstacle.

I am more real than any reality.  When you abide in My Word, I will give you a faith vision that will help you resist receiving discouragement when you face difficult times.

Faith comes by hearing and hearing by My Word.  I will surround you with a shield of faith.  Every negative word that my enemy or other people may say will bounce off that shield. When you look to Me and My Word instead of looking to the circumstances, you will move ahead with confidence because you know that My will is being accomplished in your life..

ROMANS 10:17

EXPERIENCES

When you look back over your life, you can think of many experiences when I showed Myself strong on your behalf.  I record such experiences in your Book of Remembrance.  I also record every time you mention My name and even think about My name.

Many keep a daily journal of their experiences as you do.  This is a wonderful way to remind you of My faithfulness to carry you through many trials.  One day you will understand why I allowed such trials in your life.

Until all is revealed to you, I want you to know that the purpose of trials is to form My character qualities in you and also to have you display My joy, peace, and hope even in the midst of horrific trials.  My servant Paul observed the countenance of Stephen as he was being stoned, and he could not forget Stephen's face that displayed My peace.

MALACHI 3:16; ACTS 7:55-60

TRANSFER

There is usually a transfer of wealth that is mentioned in a will.  Family members can be satisfied with their inheritance, but too often they are not.

You are a member of My family, and the inheritance I have for you will not only satisfy you, but it should give you joy unspeakable and full of glory.  You are a joint heir with Me.  The moment you received Me as your Lord and Savior, I transferred all My riches in glory to you.

My Word is My will and My testament.  Today I want you to review some of the riches that you have already inherited.

GALATIANS 4:7; ROMANS 8:16-17

REAP

Many think that I will return very soon.  However, no one knows the date, not even Me.  Only My Father knows when I will return when the reapers, My Holy Angels, will come to severe the wicked from the just.

I gave the sign of My coming to My disciples.  I will only return when My gospel is preached in all the world for a witness to every nation.  You heard just recently that there are over 3 billion people on Earth who have not yet heard the gospel.  If this is a true fact, there is much work yet to do.

The fields are white unto harvest.  I have chosen you to be alive during this last great harvest.  I want you to sow My Word to those you meet, and My Holy Spirit will do the rest. When you sow My Word, you will reap a great harvest.

MATTHEW 24:14; JOHN 4:35

REWIND

Sometimes when circumstances in life become difficult you feel like you need a fresh start.  You want to rewind the past and go forward just like you rewind thread on a spindle when it gets knotted.
However, you cannot rewind the past.

My servant Paul seldom looked back on the past.  Instead, he pressed forward to the mark, for the prize of the high calling of God in Me. He did review his past, but he only did this to prove that it was My grace that had led him thus far.

My grace has sustaining power.  My grace is able to give you endurance even during trials that never seem to end.  Look forward to My grace today.  My grace is the supernatural power to do what is naturally impossible.

PHILIPPIANS 3:14

EVACUATION

There can be many evacuation plans made to avoid death when there is an earthquake, a volcanic eruption, tornadoes, and floods near residences.  You are observing more and more people forced to leave their homes immediately because some catastrophic event is about to happen near where they live.

There is one evacuation plan that I have ordained.  That will happen when I return.  Both those who have died and those who are living who believe in Me will meet Me in the air when I return.  You can look forward to this time.  Until that time, I want you to live life fully.

There is much work to do in this last great harvest that you are experiencing.  The beginning of sorrows I spoke of is what you are experiencing now, but this is only a sign that the earth is in labor just before My return is birthed.  Give thanks today that I will be with you always even until the end.

MATTHEW 24:4-8, 28:20

ENHANCE

Good writers try to enhance their novels by telling stories that will catch the attention of their readers.  My Word is inspired by My Spirit, and the writers of My Word gave life experiences that need no enhancement.

I have heard the saying, "Truth is better than fiction."  This is a good saying because My Word is truth. My Word has the power to even divide the soul from the spirit and is able to discern the very thoughts and intents of your heart.

As you read My Word today, ask My Holy Spirit to instruct you about your day.  I know what lays ahead of you this day, and I can give you the exact passage of Scripture that will help you throughout the day. Ask My Spirit to direct you to that special passage and then listen  to hear His, still, quiet voice.

HEBREWS 4:12
