Welcome to the blog for Linda Sommer.

My Blog will cover three subjects:


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.

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.

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.

Your faith during this virus crisis has to be built on a solid substance called hope.  It is easy for your faith to waver during these critical times because most reports over the media are negative. "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1)."

The solid substance of faith is hope that comes from placing all your hope in Me and My promises. Prayer travels a highway to heaven, and that highway is called "Faith."  The "Highway of Faith" is paved with a the solid substance called "Hope."

Today review the promises in My Word and begin to declare those promises out loud.  When you do this, faith will arise. Place your hope in Me and My righteousness. Thank Me today that faith and hope are eternal, and that they will always overcome the negative reports that flood the atmosphere.

This is the question many are asking:  "Is it safe now to go out more after this long period of sheltering?"  The virus crisis is still with you. This is why you need to pray this prayer daily to Me: "Lord, put me in the right place at the right time."

I sent My Holy Spirit to guide and direct you and to show you things to come.  Listen carefully to that still quiet voice within you before you decide where to go and when to go out from your shelter.

I did not cause this virus, but I will use this virus crisis to help you spend more time listening to My voice within you. You are in training for what is ahead.  There will be more persecution of believers in the future. If you will listen and do My commandments, I have promised to bless you when you come in and when you go out.

JOHN 16:13; DEUTERONOMY 28:1, 6

One of the main idols that existed in the days when I walked on Earth was "religion."  My Jewish people spent hours in the synagogues, but their devotion to keeping the Sabbath by going to synagogue would never qualify them to receive eternal life.

The Pharisees felt that they could earn their way into heaven by doing good works and following the law.  I taught what eternal life is and I prayed that those who lived after I went to heaven would understand what eternal life is all about.

My beloved John recorded My words when I prayed this for all those who one day would believe in Me: "And this is life eternal, that they might know You the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent." If you truly know Me and believe that I died on the cross and was raised again to save you from your sins, and you confessed and turned away from your sins, then you will spend eternity with Me.

JOHN 17:3

Many are advising people to begin to store up essentials for survival in order to be ready for critical times ahead.  You experienced the shortage of many things when the virus began because people horded essentials.

When I walked on Earth I had just the bare essentials in a bag I carried on My back.  I had confidence that My Father would take care of My needs as long as I desired daily to do His will,

It is prudent to be prepared for emergencies.  Joseph stored grain for the famine that he knew was coming. He stored wisely in order to save people during the famine.  This should be your heart attitude as you face future crises.  My Father is a giver, and My joy fills your heart as you prepare in order to help others.

MATTHEW 5:42; GENESIS 41:46-49; 2 CORINTHIANS 9:7

When I walked on Earth, I got up to pray a great deal before sunrise.  I needed to talk with My heavenly Father about the assignments He had for me that day.

Each day you have works to do that My Father designed from the foundation of the Earth for you to finish. As you listen carefully to My Spirit and trust Him to speak to you about the next thing you should do or say, you will fulfill your daily assignment.

Your assignment to complete today might just be to call to encourage or to pray with a friend.  Often it is the small things in life that can change a life forever.  Be open to My Spirit today and ask Him to lead and guide you to finish your daily assignments. At the end of My life, I told My Father that I had finished the work He gave Me to do.

MARK 1:35; EPHESIANS 2:10; JOHN 17:4

 I can understand how many are weary of having restrictions on their lives. This virus crisis has restricted people from gathering together, attending their places of worship, and many other restrictions.

It is so easy to complain when things are difficult and restricted. I want you to think about My servant Paul and all that he had to put up with as he went from church to church to help strengthen the brethren. His life was threatened on many occasions and one time he was stoned and left for dead.  

Paul had much to complain about.  Yet, he wrote:"do everything without murmuring or disputing."  Pray daily for My Holy Spirit to help you not to complain.  Paul also wrote that we are to give thanks in everything and for everything.  Spend your days in thanksgiving and you will have little time to complain.

 I gave you this word because the word, "dissolve," means to disintegrate or to terminate.  This word also means to liquefy or to make a solution.

Many are praying for this virus to dissolve and loosen its grip on the world. I am the solution to this crisis, and communication with Me during this virus crisis is vital.  Pray for My body, those redeemed by My blood, to repent from going the world's way instead of My way.

The only liquid that will be able to dissolve this crisis is the water of My Word declared out loud in prayer and the power of the water of My Spirit released through My anointing upon those Who believe in Me. 

1 JOHN 5:8; EPHESIANS 5:26; TITUS 3:5

When chaos and lawlessness reign, it is a sign that people want to be free from all restraints.  My Father put the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil in the garden as a restraint on Adam and Eve.  He told them that they could eat of every tree in the garden, but they were not to eat of the Tree of Knowledge because if they did they would surely die.

God placed that tree in the garden to give a choice to Adam and Eve.  They could choose to follow the commandment of My Father or they could choose to do what seemed right in their own eyes. They chose to disobey My Father's command and because of that sin entered the world.

If this restraining order had not been given to Adam and Eve, they would never have the choice to obey or disobey My Father.  My Father wanted them to choose to obey.  We have free will today to choose to love Me by obeying My commandments or to disobey Me.  Love is not love unless you have a choice to love.

 It is easy to go through life without regarding what life is all about.  The word, "regard" means to consider or to evaluate.  I have seen how many in your culture today lack purpose.  The questions people ask about life such as, "Who am I? "What am I here for?" and "What is important or not important in life?" are often left unanswered.

When I taught on Earth, I wanted people to know the answers to these questions. I taught about the kingdom, and I wanted them to enter My kingdom.  I knew that if they entered My kingdom by being born of the Spirit, they would know who they are, what they are here for and what is really important in life.

Rejoice today because you know who you are and why you are here.  You are My Father's child who has the same purpose I had when I was on Earth.  I came to Earth to glorify My Father which means to reveal His love and His presence to others.  You are here to glorify Me and My Father to others.  Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify My Father Who is in heaven,

The question many are asking just before this election is: "Who will reign as president?" Promotion does not come from the east or the west.  It comes from Me.  I am the One Who places leaders in a land in order to fulfill My purposes.

The prayers of My body on Earth will avail much as believers in Me  humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways.  I will then hear from heaven and heal their land.  

I know that every believer wants righteousness to reign.  Be encouraged today for I am hearing the voice of many today. Rejoice because I am the One Who reigns over the heathen, and I will judge the people righteously.

During the time of this pandemic, I am awakening My church to see the importance of prayer.  When you pray the prayer I gave My disciples (the one you call the Lord's prayer), I told them to pray, "Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in haven."

Prayer is the only avenue that My Father has chosen to change nations, people, and situations on Earth.  Your mandate as a member of the body of Christ is to pray My heaven down to Earth.

I will use this time when it seems that fear is enveloping many non believers to infuse My strength, My power, and My glory into the body of Christ on Earth.  This will only happen as you spend more time  than ever in prayer.  PRAY, PRAY !! One of My last instructions to My disciples was: "Watch and Pray."

MATTHEW 6:10, 26:41; MARK 13:33

The pause that this pandemic has caused in many lives has caused many to anxiously await the day when things will be normal again.  Some say that life in this world will never be the same again.

Such statements could spiral you into a depression.  I want to share the good news with you that will cause you to meet each day, no matter what it may hold, with joy.

You are not a citizen of this world.  You are a citizen of heaven, and you live in My kingdom while you are on Earth.  My kingdom does not change because I am a changeless God.  I am the same yesterday and today, and forever.  Your life is hid with Me in My Father's heart.  Rejoice because even though the world is changing, you can experience My righteousness, peace and joy in My Spirit every day.

 Sometimes you feel like you just cannot move forward.  It almost feels like there is a wall that you cannot surmount.  It is during those times that you need to ask Me for the gift of faith.  My adversary wants you to be overwhelmed by doubt in yourself and even doubt in Me.

The psalmist David went through times like that when he even doubted if I was still with him.  I was able to dispense My gift of faith to him the minute he turned his eyes from his own battle to Me.  Once he began to worship Me, he forgot about how unworthy he felt to move ahead.

Today build your spirit up by just simply worshiping Me. Sing to Me.  You can sing hymns and make melody in your heart.  Your praise and worship will dispel My enemy's plan to block your spiritual progress.

This virus crisis has caused many lives to be out of order.  The routines of going to work and school as usual have been interrupted.  I can put  things in order in your life even during this pandemic. 

I want you to give each day completely into My hands.  My Holy Spirit then can establish your thoughts as you give Him your "To Do List."  There is something very comforting about order.

I want  you to meditate on this promise in PSALM 37:23:  The promise in this Psalm is that your steps will be ordered as you delight in My way.  Spend time each day just thanking Me for ordering your day.

PSALM 37:23; PROVERBS 16:3

So many are concerned about the future conditions of the world since this virus crisis came so suddenly and made such an impact on the lives of everyone.  However, because you are trusting Me with your future, you have an advantage over many who are anxious or even fearful about their future.

I am able to give a peace that passes human understanding in the midst of every trial. People want peace of mind now, and I want you to take every opportunity to share how they can embrace this peace.

Pray that every believer will be prepared to share with others the reason for their peace and hope in a world that seems to be falling apart.

JOHN 14:27, 16:33

You will hear the phrase, "You must set boundaries," from counselors who are dealing with people who have been bound by certain addictions, abusive actions or who are co-dependent.  Boundaries are important if you want to break certain strongholds (old patterns of thinking) in your mind.

I have created for you boundaries that provide not only a safe place from abusive, addictive behavior.  I have given you the boundaries of My Kingdom on Earth.  This is why I exhorted My disciples to seek first the Kingdom of God and My righteousness and then all your earthly needs will be met.

If you want to destroy addictive, abusive, or co-dependent strongholds in your life, you must put Me first in your everyday life.  When you do, you can live in the boundaries of My Kingdom on Earth which are My righteousness, peace and joy in My Spirit.  Seek Me today with all of your heart.

 I have prepared a pavilion that you can hide in when times of trouble come.  It is a secret tabernacle that you can go to when circumstances begin to overwhelm you.  That pavilion is under the shelter of My wings where I dwell.

Whenever you have anxious or fearful thoughts, I want you to take time to enter My pavilion.  You can enter My pavilion simply by acknowledging My presence with you.  I have promised to be with you always, but often you are too busy to recognize My presence with you.

When you come to Me, the strife of tongues that broadcast alarming news will be silenced as you spend time with Me.  Here in this quiet pavilion of My presence, you will be able to hear My voice as My Holy Spirit encourages you to be not afraid.

PSALM 27:5, 31:20

I gave you the word, "Inheritance," today because I want you to realize what your inheritance is.  An inheritance is ownership by virtue of birthright.  This is the definition of an inheritance.

Because you have been born of My Spirit, you are now a joint heir with Me.  Your inheritance includes all heavenly blessings which include the fact that you are without blame and made holy by My righteousness that was freely given to you when I died to forgive you of all your sins.

You have inherited total forgiveness and redemption because I purchased this for you by My shed blood.  This means that you are accepted as one of My beloved.  Rejoice today because you have inherited all the riches in glory that I enjoy.

 Discipline is a word that few like to hear.  This word is defined as training that develops self-control, character, orderliness, and efficiency.  When I walked on Earth I taught My disciples with the hope that they would develop these attributes of discipline in their lives.

As you know, My disciples had little discipline when I became their teacher.  I was patient and merciful with My disciples because I knew the day would come when they would be disciplined.

It was not until My Holy Spirit empowered them at Pentecost to be effective witnesses in this world that they finally developed discipline in their spiritual growth.  Look at what happened to My disciples after they were empowered.  This should give you great hope. When you allow My Spirit to empower you, you also can be disciplined in your spiritual growth.  Receive My power today.

 I have legions of angels at My disposal that can be released as you intercede for your nation and the world.  Angels are activated when you give My Word voice.  

The strategy for you and all believers who know the power of prayer is to begin to decree and make declarations from My Word.  My Word never returns void.  It always accomplishes what I send it out to do.

I am calling every believer to labor in prayer for their nation and the world in these critical days.  Pray that My body on Earth will be used as effective vessels of prayer as they use the keys to the kingdom that I have given them to bind demonic powers and to loose My angel armies.

PSALM 103:20; MATTHEW 9:38; ISAIAH 55:11

I want you to pray and break the bondage of fear that is over your nation.  All that My enemy has released through demonstrations, violence, and the virus has caused many to fear.  

I have not given the spirit of fear, but I have given the Spirit of adoption. that will enable people to know My Father. Many of the people who are in fear have broken hearts that have resulted from abandonment, accusations, and physical, emotional, or sexual abuse.

I came to break all bondage to fear and replace that fear with My Spirit of Power, Love and a Sound Mind. Those who are in fear are also confused.  Bind the spirit of fear and curse the fruit of confusion over your nation.  Release the Spirit of adoption, Power, Love and a Sound mind over your nation.

ROMANS 8:15; 2 TIMOTHY 1:7

Many people make "To Do Lists" early in the morning before the day begins when there are many distractions that prevent their"To Do List" from being fulfilled.

There is a list that I want you to consider every morning.  It is not a "To Do List."  It is a "Done List."
Everyone who has received Me as their Lord and Savior will be filled with joy as they review this "Done List."

Here is the "Done List."  Through Me, you have received the wisdom of God. Through Me you have been made acceptable to God because I imparted My righteousness to you.  Through Me you have been set apart to do My Father's will, and through Me you have been ransomed from the penalty for sin. Rejoice today because I have done these things for you.

During this virus crisis, many people are networking to find jobs and other ways of meeting their needs.
There are many search engines on computers that people can use to help them.

When I walked on Earth, we had no computers, social media, or any of the technical advantages that you have in your age.  I had to depend solely on the instructions that My Father gave Me as I prayed to Him before daylight every morning.

My Holy Spirit can guide you the same way I was guided. When you ask for the help of My Holy Spirit, He will be able to help you with whatever need you may have.  He is the "Supreme Net worker."

JOHN 16:13

Monday, August 3, 2020


I died to give those in the world a chance to have a new beginning.  I told Nicodemus that he must be born again in order to see or enter My Kingdom.  He did not understand what I meant.

Multitudes of people who have received Me as their Lord and Savior do understand what it means to be born of the Spirit.  Revival is now taking place in many areas in your country.  Pray for many more souls to be born again.

People Who have been born again by My Spirit have a new beginning that will never end.  They have a fresh start and a purpose for life that will last for all eternity. 

JOHN 3:5-21

Sunday, August 2, 2020


I was with My disciples and I said this to them, "Henceforth I call you not servants, for the servant does not know what his lord does, but I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard of My Father I have made known unto you (John 15:15)."

I shared these words with My disciples at My last Passover celebration with them.  I then told them that I had "chosen them to go and bring forth fruit, and that their fruit should remain that whatsoever they asked of the Father in My name, He may give it to them (John 15:16)."

I have chosen you to be alive at this time when it seems like the world is falling apart. I want you also to go and bring forth fruit that will remain. I want you to speak the truth of My gospel to many.

JOHN 15:15-17

There are many today crying out for help because of the challenges they face during this virus crisis. 

Those who believe in Me have the privilege of releasing all their cares to Me because they trust Me to help them, and they know that I care for them.

Pray for those you know who do not know where to turn to for help during these trying times. When they believe and receive Me as their Lord and Savior, I become their "Care Taker," Who can unburden them from all their cares.

1 PETER 5:7
