Can God Do Everything?
The notion that God can do everything is a great misconception. He cannot do everything. He cannot do things that can make Him an imperfect God. The following verses from the Holy Scriptures will enlighten us on how perfect and blameless our God is:
God cannot lie. If He lies, the Holy Bible that contains His words will not become reliable. This is the reason why the Holy Bible can be trusted – because He never lies.
Hebrews 6:18 (New King James Version)
that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us.
Titus 1:2 (New King James Version)
in hope of eternal life which God, who cannot lie, promised before time began,
God cannot break His promises. This is also the reason why He deserves our pure hope, faith and love.
Psalm 89:34 (New King James Version)
My covenant I will not break, Nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips.
God cannot deny Himself. He remains faithful.
2 Timothy 2:13 (New King James Version)
If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself.
God cannot tempt anyone with evil.
James 1:13 (New King James Version)
Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone.
God cannot show prejudice. He is always a God of justice and righteousness.
Acts 10:34-35 (New King James Version)
Then Peter opened his mouth and said: “In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality. 35 But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him.
God cannot lead us to failure. Instead, He always guides us to reign and power.
2 Corinthians 2:14 (New King James Version)
Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.
God cannot leave or forsake people who are constantly faithful to Him.
Deuteronomy 31:6 (New King James Version)
Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”
God cannot stop loving His chosen people.
Jeremiah 31:3 (New King James Version)
The LORD has appeared of old to me, saying: “ Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.
God cannot do ungodly things.
Psalm 90:2 (New King James Version)
Before the mountains were brought forth, Or ever You had formed the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.
God cannot disrespect His gift to us – our free will. He gave us the power to choose between good and evil, and between salvation and damnation. This gift of God made us a great creation (superior than robots and micro processors). God is an Almighty Creator.
Jeremiah 7:31 (New King James Version)
And they have built the high places of Tophet, which is in the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire, which I did not command, nor did it come into My heart.
Jeremiah 19:5 (New King James Version)
(they have also built the high places of Baal, to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings to Baal, which I did not command or speak, nor did it come into My mind),
Deuteronomy 30:19 (New King James Version)
I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live;
Isaiah 1:19 (New King James Version)
If you are willing and obedient, You shall eat the good of the land;
