    At the command

    I got this sentence:
    "The world is at your command"
    Can you explain me the phrase?

    Re: At the command

    at your command: (phrase)

    Definition:
    If you have a particular skill or particular resources at your command, you have them and can use them fully. (FORMAL)

    Example:
    "The country should have the right to defend itself with all legal means at its command."

    Re: At the command

    So what is the difference between" at command" and, "In command"?
