You Can Rule Where You Are
In the secular world, a man can only rule when he asserts himself or employs physical force where he is working. In God’s kingdom, a man that rules is not the one that asserts himself or employs physical force but one that submits to God’s authority as he passes through several spiritual dealings.
Most times, it is a meek man that rules, not a strong man. It is a meek or broken man that rules, not alone but with God, and that is why he exerts power wherever he finds himself. It is such a man that can rule over forces contrary to Christ in his environment. It takes passing through many things in the hands of God before a man can have power with God and with men.
‘Rule’ in this context has to do with bringing the rule of heaven to bear in an environment without quarelling or fighting or causing commotion. It is a life that distabilizes the agents of darkness; a life that scatters and shatters the works of evil without struggling. It is a life that is light. Every other thing around him may be darkness yet his light subdues them. It is the poverty of this in the Church and in the market place that necessitated the writing of this book.
How do we get this ‘life’ and live it out and draw sinners to God; and this ‘light’ that we might shine it and cause darkness to flee; and this ‘force’ that we may exert it and make the wicked to bow? This is what this book is all about.
This book is a sequel to “You Don’t Know What You Have.” I encourage you to read it before reading, “You Can Rule Where You Are.” The thread of thoughts that runs through the two books will help you understand God’s purpose for you in a society filled with evil and contradictions.
Again, I implore you to pray as you read through. This is not the best of times for the Church. God is looking for “iron benders”, to bring order in our land. May you be one of them!
