Hello friends, welcome! Today is the first post of my Sunday Blessings series. Every week I will share God’s love for you, But first I would like to share some details about the Bible and the Sunday Blessings Series. I use the NIV Bible for my ministry.
The New International Version (NIV) Bible presents the truth of the Bible without the challenging knowledge of the long and complex language of the Old and New Testament. This translation of the Bible is in modern text which allows for easier reading and a clearer understanding of the Bible without losing the original scriptures of the New Testament and Old Testament of the Holy Bible.
ABOUT VERSIONS OF THE BIBLE
The Christian Bible has two sections, the New Testament and the Old Testament
The New Testament of the Bible was written by Christians in the first century AD. The Old Testament is the original Hebrew Bible, the sacred scriptures written by Moses. The King James Version of the Bible is closest to the original text. It includes the 39 books of the Old Testament and the 27 books of the New Testament. The NIV Bible has sixty-six books divided into eight sections – Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges and Ruth.
The New Testament has twenty-seven books divided into five sections: Gospels, Acts, Letters of Paul, General Epistles, and Revelations (Apocalyptic).
The Old Testament contains thirty-nine books divided into four sections: Books of Law called the Pentateuch or Torah, the Historical Books, the Poetic Books, and the Prophetic Books
I thought you might like to follow along so you will find the books and chapters to the NIV bible to download below.

Now that I have detailed the source information for the Sunday Blessings blog series. I won’t need to do it all again. So here we are.
God is our comfort; He is always with us. Life can be hard sometimes and those are the times when you should feel God’s love and comfort most. God can take those negative things in our lives and turn them into blessings. We should trust in Him and not be afraid.
Today’s Sunday Blessing is Isaiah 41:10 ~ Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
