vs. 2 This is what the LORD says: “Do not learn the ways of the nations or be terrified by signs in the sky, though the nations are terrified by them.” vs. 12 But God made the earth by his power; he founded the world by his wisdom and stretched out the heavens by his understandings.
For instance, the nations are alarmed and distressed over global warming and climate issues. These are the worries and fears of those who are either ignorant of God, or have chosen to remove the knowledge of Him from their lives. We need not be fearful. The earth is the Lord’s. He made it. We don’t trust the earth for the days of our lives. We trust in God, the Creator, for the days of our lives.
