Judges 11:2 “And Gilead’s wife bare him sons; and his wife’s sons grew up and they thrust out Jephthah, and said unto him, Thou shalt not inherit in our father’s house; for thou art the son of a strange woman.”

“Every object persist in its state of rest or uniform motion in a straight line unless it is compelled to change that state by forces impressed on it”, that is the popular Newton’s first law of motion.

We all need a push in life, either from within us or from an external body. Unless a force is applied, we often tend to remain in our state of rest or comfort zone. The brothers of Jephthah didn’t just force him to obey the first law of motion, what they did to him was recorded in the Bible as a “thrust”.

The Bible says, “And Gilead’s wife bare him sons; and his wife’s sons grew up and they THRUST out Jephthah…” (Judges 11:2). Those folks didn’t ask him to leave politely, they thrust him out!

A thrust according to NASA is the force which moves an aircraft through the air. It is the force that is used to overcome the drag of an airplane, and to overcome the weight of a rocket. Thrust is generated by the engines of the aircraft through some kind of propulsion system.

It is often described by Isaac Newton’s second and third laws of motion! Thrust is a sudden burst of energy that propels the aircraft forward. It helps the aircraft to overcome every opposing force and move forward against all odds.

Beloved, you might not like a thrust but truth be told, you won’t move unless there is a sort of thrust. That pressure you’re going through is not organized to destroy you, it is meant to thrust you forward.

Thrust is a reaction force that acts by accelerating an object in the direction opposite to the applied force.

There is a place you and I need to go and it will take a thrust to get us there. God knows this and most times organizes it without consulting us!
