That desire was planted inside us when we were converted through faith in Christ.
At that moment, the Holy Spirit took up residence within our body.
Those old habits are simply the fruit of an unstable heart and mind.7) You would love to only be drawn to the things of God.
Deep within the soul of every believer is the desire to live fully for God.
What every believer desperately needs is to fully surrender their heart and mind to the Lord.3) You find yourself compromising your thought life in one primary area. And just as he knew what "triggers" to employ with Adam and Eve, he has discovered a variety of enticements that are intended to lead believers to become double-minded.
Satan hates to see believers fully surrendered to the Lord. Our challenge as sinful human beings is to say "no" to sin and "yes" to righteous living.
A double-minded Christian is always being torn in two directions.

In particular, although the Gregorian calendar standardised on 1st January for the start of the year, previous usage had tended to vary, with 25th March being used in some contexts and 1st January in others.
Hence for dates between 1st January and 25th March in years before the introduction of the Gregorian calendar it can be unclear which year is meant, which led to the introduction of the "double date" syntax to make clear that the date is in the first year if you take 1st January as the start of the year, but the second year if you take 25th March to be the start of the year. :-) The accepted term is a "dual date" to avoid the unfortunate ambiguity. lkessler has provided a link to the Glossary which provides a good answer.
