I don't do stupid things when I drive because it doesn't work out well for me to wreck my car or injure myself or others. It's not that I'm afraid, I would just rather be healthy and have a driveable car.
Many of the faith wonder why they have nightmares. No, the devil is not dragging you to hell or trying to scare you. The answer is simple, you must know fear while being here in the physical. Father sometimes has to remind ones here that fear is needed.
While driving, fear keeps you in line of causing danger to self or others, or police action. (Texting while driving, speeding, etc.)
Fear of death or starvation, keeps you prepared to walk that hike in the woods.
If fear was not had, some would think they are invincible and encounter danger along their path.
Some may ask, isn't this where faith comes into play? Yes, in a sense it does. But, you can still cause physical harm to self or others, by being fearless. The same goes with worry. Brother stated to all, do not worry about what you will eat or wear. But, some worry is to be had. As you worry about how you will pay your bills, it causes you to go out and seek ways to make ends meet.
Some may say, well what about how Father protected those in the bible, isn't fear the opposite of having faith in God? Always fearing or always worrying is lack of faith. But, a small dose of each, will also keep the protection intact. Most of the stories in the Word, where people overcame danger is because they had to go through said danger unintentional. Where intentional danger, for example jumping off a cliff, testing Father to see if he will save you, is not going to go well for you.
Father sends other signs of keeping a small dose of fear as well. Accidents and mishaps are big attention grabbers. As you are now more inclined to "pay attention" next time.
