    Today, President Joe Biden will take part in a signing ceremony for two major pieces of legislation meant to address the nation’s ongoing opioid epidemic and the growing needs of American veterans by boosting funding to the Department of Veterans Affairs.

    The first bill, Dispose Unused Medications and Prescription Opioids Act, will allow for the safe drop off and disposal of prescription medication and opioids at all VA facilities nationwide. Representative Mike Bost, a ranking member of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, said following the passage of the bill, “By getting opioids off the streets, this bill will help the growing opioid crisis that has only gotten worse over the last year.”

    The second bill, the Major Medical Facility Authorization Act of 2021, will provide funding for major infrastructure and maintenance projects within the VA. According to Senator Jon Tester, chairman of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, “The House passage of our bipartisan bill means we’re on track to deliver key projects that’ll create jobs and expand quality care to veterans nationwide.”

    As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

    • For President Biden’s administration as improvements are made within the Department of Veterans Affairs.
    • For Representative Bost as he heads the House Committee for Veterans Affairs.
    • For Secretary McDonough as he heads the VA department.

Vantage Point Devotional
  • You Say You Have Plans?

    For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. – Isaiah 55:9

    Most corporate training groups will tell you that failing to plan is the same as planning to fail. Indeed, planning, while it may take time away from what you feel the task actually is, ultimately makes the effort simpler and more efficient. Planners ask three basic questions: Where am I now? Where do I want to go? What steps will I take to get there? By contrast, a quote attributed to comedian and filmmaker, Woody Allen, says, “If you want to make God laugh, tell him about your plans.” 

    Another perspective comes from film actor Joseph Fiennes, who, when discussing the World War II movie Enemy at the Gate, made a reference to Russian soldiers in the fight against Germany when he said, “The very fact that these people had a life expectancy of only four days makes you start to think about the whole idea of fate” (or of plans)!

    For every tomorrow that God has ordained for you, He has a plan. He may allow you to muddle along in your own plans for a time. However, if you are close to Him and seek His direction, He will guide you. “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you” (Psalm 32:8).

    As government officials make plans and legislate the nation’s future, pray that among them there will be men and women of God who will seek His will for the nation, then act accordingly. God does have a plan and it will not be thwarted (Job 42:2).

    Today’s Verse: Isaiah 55:9

    For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
        so are my ways higher than your ways
        and my thoughts than your thoughts.

    a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
    a time to tear, and a time to sew;
    a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
    a time to love, and a time to hate;
