Picture this. If you are able to conquer yourself, you can conquer anything. If you are able to govern your spirit, you are able to govern more than an entire city. This is not an exaggerated saying. That is spoken straight from the word Himself.
Proverbs 16:32: “He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.”
Let that sink in. The one that can govern his spirit is greater than that who can besiege an entire city with an army.
Why don’t most operate at that level? We have our answer. Most do not govern their spirits. Spiritual government and control begins with submission to the logos(word of God). Every spirit is word-driven. If you don’t read the logos you can’t submit to it and if you don’t submit to it, there is no spiritual government.
Word moves spirit and spirit moves matter. You therefore will not be able to effectively move matter without the logos.
We can also see that slowness to anger supersedes might. Show me a person who submits to the logos and is slow to anger, and I can assure you, that person, walking in the likeness of God is full of power!
Govern your spirit!
