Christine Caine’s ‘Unexpected’: Anticipating God’s Goodness in the Chaos and His Divine Plan in the Unpredictable

Share:

Christine Caine's new book, “Unexpected,” reminds us that we were created for a purpose by a perfect God who does not want fear to hold us back—even during unexpected challenges and circumstances that might catch us off guard.


“Leave fear behind. Move forward in faith. Embrace the adventure.” If you’ve heard her speak, you know that Christine Caine will get you out of your seat and ready to tackle whatever life brings you. And life does seem to bring a myriad of unexpected circumstances sometimes, doesn’t it?

That is what Caine’s new book, “Unexpected,” is all about.  With each turn of the page, “Unexpected” reminds you that you were created for a purpose by a perfect God who does not want fear to hold you back—even during unexpected challenges that might catch you off guard.

And sometimes, circumstances that might even shake your faith.

“Unexpected” calls us to come out of hiding from behind our defenses and trade hope for fear—to not only expect the unexpected but to embrace it.

Caine—an Australian-born lover of Jesus, activist, author and international speaker—has made it her primary passion to make Jesus’ last command her first priority by giving her all to see the lost saved and to build the local church—globally.

“I believe with all my heart that it’s possible for every child of God to learn how to live with a faith so confident in God, it can’t be shaken—even when the ground underneath is giving way,” writes Caine. “I believe we can live this expectant—this hopeful, this free, this faith-filled—in the face of everything that comes our way. Even the unexpected.”

But instead of just telling us to leave fear behind and muster up some confidence, Caine calls out specific triggers or circumstances that might be bringing fear into our lives and outlines a plan to address them. She talks about topics like betrayal, disappointment, grief, sickness, aging and failure with an honesty that makes the reader feel heard and understood. Using dramatic examples from her own life and journey with fear, Caine illustrates how to move from fear and worry to hope and trust in God.

“Unexpected” takes you on a journey that will teach you how to deal with pain barriers, manage disappointment, strengthen your heart, build your faith and expand your life. By encouraging us to leave fear behind, Caine affirms that we can step out into the adventure, destiny and assignments given to us by God.

“God created you on purpose, for a purpose—and he never wants fear of the unexpected or from the unexpected to hold you back… Let’s leave fear behind, move forward in faith, and embrace the adventure of the unexpected.”

When we stop viewing unexpected circumstances as roadblocks and instead, accept them as invitations to trust God fully and wholeheartedly, we develop a faith that is strong enough to turn chaos into goodness. Caine reminds us that God never expected us to live controlled by our lives, but to “anticipate his goodness in the chaos and his divine plan in the unpredictable.”

Easier said than done you might be thinking. However, the beauty of the journey is the first step. It might not be easy and fear might always threaten to take the wheel, but “Unexpected” reminds us that when we face challenges from a place of faith instead of fear, God will show up for us. We are beautifully made and our future has already been painted by a master artist.
