Suggestion from the Pastor

A Lifting up for the Downcast

by: William Bridge

Pastor’s Description

Throughout the ages many of God’s saints have struggled with spiritual depression. Giants of the faith, such as Charles Spurgoen, D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones and Amy Carmichael have had moments when they struggled through the darkness, waiting for the light.

Sensing such times within his own congregation, William Bridge preached a series of thirteen sermons on Psalm 42:11 in order to encourage and uplift his people. Keenly observing the origins of many discouragements, Bridge led his hearers to the solution as well.

These sermons are offered in a short volume published by Banner of Truth that can be read straight through or used as a devotional.. I have found A Lifting up for the Downcast to be of great benefit in my own walk and highly recommend it to all that put their hope in God.
