William S. Plumer (1802–1880) was an American Presbyterian minister and theologian recognized as a Reformed leader in the church in the 19th century.

This work concerns dealing with affliction in a manner that glorifies God.

Everyone deals with affliction. The question that remains is how well, as a Christian, you deal with it to the glory of God. Sometimes you will get weary. When you get weary you sometimes need a word of instruction, a word of encouragement, a word of comfort, and a word of caution. This is where William Plumer will give you all of these in a tender and pastoral manner.

He takes God’s word and applies it to a number of afflictions that Christians regularly deal with such as the death of a loved one, those who speak hatefully against you, spiritual warfare, times of spiritual leanness, and one which many deal with daily, poor health. Not only will he Scripturally deal with those difficulties, but he also includes devotional writings of hymns and poems that are designed to lift the spirits of the saints. Many Christians have lived and died. Their experiences are often our experiences. Plumer shares them in this work.

May this devotional instruction on affliction and weariness of soul be a great help to lift your spirit to have high thoughts of God and Christ even amidst daily tribulations.
