Moed Katan 16b states that a righteous person can nullify the decree of God. How does Rashi explain this?

Rashi says:

צור ישראל - מושל באדם אני מי מושל בי צדיק מושל בי ומבטלה

I have a vague idea of what Rashi is saying (making use of a dictionary). Could you kindly translate the above.

B"H

י צור ישראל- מושל באדם אני מי מושל בי צדיק מושל בי ומבטלה

The rock of Yisroyayl - rule over man, I {do, i.e., "I", assume referring to Hashem, rules over man}. Who rules over {literally "in"} me? A tzawdeek, {righteous person} rules over me, and nullifies it {the decree I'm assuming}

Blessings and success
