Fear can be a good thing.

Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, 
upon them that hope in his mercy;

Proverbs 8:13
The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, 
and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.

Fear of the Lord? In this age of the marshmallow gospel, we aren't instructed on the fear of the Lord. But God is not one for mushy love. NO. He is serious. Sent His only begotten Son, Jesus, to die for the sin of the world. Nothing mushy about it. Sin is nothing to laugh at, or mock at as so many of our TV shows are inclined to do. 

While driving, if you spot a police car at the side of the road, you slow down, whether you were speeding or not. You don't want to be caught breaking the law. You respect the law.

Fear of the Lord is much the same. God is whole and pure. Perfection. Of course we can not attain perfection except in Jesus, but we should respect the Lord enough to be conscious of His Presence and to do likewise.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. 

In the times we are a living, there is much foolishness propagated by the educated elite of this world. Beware of their teachings, for they hate mankind while pretending they care. 

Instead, seek the Lord and His righteousness. Hunger for the wisdom that is from above. And Fear the Lord. Any doubts  - read the end of the Book of Revelation and see what wonders await the saints who believe.

Judgment will come. 
Fear God, hate evil, and rejoice that Jesus is coming!
