LISTENING TO GOD FORUM ~ This international forum is for those interested in developing a listening relationship with Jesus and in experiencing His freeing Truth. It's a place to learn, share stories, ask questions, and share what Jesus is doing in and through you. Are you working through the book on your own? Have you started an inner-healing study? I'd love to dialogue with you today!
“The Spirit of the Almighty Lord is
with Me because the Lord has anointed Me to deliver good news to humble people.
He has sent Me to heal those who are brokenhearted, to announce that captives
will be set free and prisoners will be released. He has sent Me to provide for
all those who grieve in Zion, to give them crowns instead of ashes, the oil of
joy instead of tears of grief, and clothes of praise instead of a spirit of
weakness.” Isaiah 61:1 and 3a (GW)
The above quotation is from the scroll of the prophet Isaiah that Jesus
read in the synagogue in Nazareth at the very inception of His ministry on
The deep transformation we yearn for is not a
matter of human intellect, willpower, desire, being good enough, earning it, or
pleading for it. Though we can place ourselves in a position where God can transform
us, it’s as Solomon said in Proverbs 21:31: “The
horse is prepared for the day of battle, but victory belongs to the Lord.”
Many people know intellectually who they are in
Christ but don’t experience this in their core. The heart’s inability to
experience what the head knows is a sure sign of a heart in bondage … and in
profound need of the inner-healing ministry of the Messiah!
For many of us, the underlying cause of our
head/heart disconnect is the hurts we experienced during our childhood. They
induce us to cut ourselves off from our hearts as a type of self-protection.
The largely unconscious process goes something like this: Since it hurts so much when I allow myself to feel my emotions or hope
for something, it’s safer to deaden my heart and not allow myself to be
disappointed. So we end up living primarily in our heads and then wonder
why we feel so disconnected from God and the people around us.
Inner healing is about opening up with God in such
a way that He can reveal what happened within us and change us from the inside
For centuries, the church has neglected the healing of the brokenhearted and setting captives free facet of Jesus’ mission. It is reemerging in this present
generation. The author of A Guide for
Listening and Inner Healing Prayer draws from decades of experience in
international ministry to people from all walks of life. Biblically based,
God-centered and highly practical, this book will help you experience God’s
healing touch from emotional wounds from your past. It will also equip you,
your small group, church, or mission group to extend inner healing to the
increasingly wounded people of our generation.

Heal the brokenhearted - My sheep hear My voice
"This is a very clearly written
book on how to listen and hear from God, and how to allow God to bring healing
to the broken places in your life. It includes many true life stories of
healing, and asks wonderful questions for your own healing journey. I have
purchased several copies of this book to give to family and friends. I am in a
study of this book with two close friends, and we are seeing wonderful results
from using the concepts outlined in this book. It says in the Bible, that Jesus
came to ‘heal the brokenhearted’, and that ‘My sheep hear My voice’. These two
verses will become a reality to you as you apply the principles found in this
book. I highly recommend this book."

helping you to find your way to PEACE with GOD.”

"The Book developed a framework that I will use
the rest of my life for myself and for those I invest in ... to bring about
wholeness. Rusty and the PRT are right that people often hit a glass
ceiling in becoming like Christ. This book identifies those barriers
and help you figure out how to move past them. It has helped me begin a
journey that I always wished I could be on. I have finally re-engaged
my heart and head and fight the spiritual warfare battle. Excellent!"

"After working through this book, I
would highly recommend this guide. Not only did I find healing in some
areas of my life, but also how to facilitate with others. Rusty shares
his life and experiences openly and helpfully. As I practice the
principles with others, I am awed to see God work in helping them see
issues more clearly and find healing in their hearts from long-term
struggles and shame. Amazing. If someone is willing to take the time
to work through this book I would venture to say it could be

"Rusty Rustenbach's A Guide for Listening and
Inner-Healing Prayer has been instrumental in guiding seven of us into a
greater awareness of God's desire to speak deep into our lives. As
we've learned how to better listen to God, and as we've learned more
about His desire to heal past wounding in our lives, God has brought
healing to some, a renewed hope for intimacy with the Father for others
and an increased desire for all of us to listen to His voice. I believe
that this guide can best be used by a small group whose members truly
desire to hear God's voice and experience inner healing in new ways."
