(Proverbs 10:24 KJV) The fear of the wicked, it shall come upon him: but the desire of the righteous shall be granted.
There is a phrase that comes to mind, “self fulfilling prophecy”. Here it relates to the state of our mind as we face life. When your focus in life is on evil, and Proverbs has a very wide definition of evil, you are going to reap the harvest of that focus. Have you noticed how animals seem to sense fear in humans? I like horses but I am afraid of them. They know it. When I ride they pretty much ignore me.
So? Life will reward you, good or bad. It will give you the desire of your heart. Most people are determined to be lord of their own lives and God will honor that rejection.
