In the context of spiritual warfare, our spiritual authority is based on the acknowledgement that we are in Christ and that God gave us the authority to overcome the enemy. Spiritual authority is based on faith in Christ, not faith in ourselves. We pray in tongues in the process of the ministry of inner healing and deliverance because we know we need God to be able to help fellow believers undergo this process.
Demons will try to convince believers that they do not have any authority in this matter. Authority is not a feeling. If believers feel scared or inadequate, it does not mean that they have less authority. Christ’s authority over demons is not diminished by the lack of courage or confidence on our part in ourselves. Instead, we need to be sure of Christ’s authority. It is through Jesus that we are able to have authority over these demons. However, Christians are no threat to Satan when we do not declare Christ’s authority because of our doubts and fears of personal inadequacy
