Book and Heart / Yetzer Hara and Torah

Our battle would be much easier if the Yetzer Hara (inner adversary) were in a book and the Torah was in our heart. What does Hashem expect when the Torah is in a book and the Yetzer Hara is in our hearts?

Hashem, though, has promised He will fight our wars, even this one. We just have to make the initial effort. (The Shpolah Zaydeh)
