Job, without the baptism of the Holy Ghost, lost all 10 of his children in one day, and his prayers were not "Lord give me my kids back"..

Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.. Col. 3:2...

For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

We are called & empowered to Prove what is pleasing to God & to reprove (convict, chasten, punish) everything that is not pleasing to God.. Conviction is what we give to everything that is not pleasing to God..
