I know what you’re saying to yourself right now. It’s probably something like “Come on AJ. God can’t? God can do anything. There is nothing that is impossible with Him.” I know. I know. God is omniscient. God is omnipresent. God is all powerful. God is all sufficient. God is God all by Himself. There is none above Him. There is none beside Him. There was none before Him. And there will be none after Him.
With that all said, I believe there is three things that God can’t do.
1) God can’t fail.
God always comes through. It may not be what we want and when we want it, but it is what is best for us at just the right time. He is a good God that wants good things for His children. Even though we fail, He never does. Paul says it this way in his second letter to Timothy:
If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself. (2 Timothy 2:13 NKJV)
No matter how many times we screw up. No matter how long we stay faithless. No matter the amount of moments we fail. God doesn’t make mistakes. He remains faithful. And He can’t fail.
2) God can’t lie.
God’s word is true. When He says something it will come to pass. He cannot go back on His word. Moses wrote this in Numbers:
God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through? (Numbers 23:19 NLT)
If God says it, you can take it to the bank because it is going to happen. He is true to His word. You can count on that.
3) God can’t stop loving you.
The apostle Paul writes this to the Romans, the very people that were responsible for killing Jesus:
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39 NIV)
Nothing you could ever do or have done. Nowhere you could run or hide. Nothing that is or was done to you. No sin. No screw up. No mess up. No mistake. Could ever stop God from loving you. His love never fails. Never runs out. And never gives up on you. His love is unconditional. He loved you before you were ever born. He loves you now. And He will continue to love you no matter what. He knew and knows everything about you and He still loved and loves you. He can’t love you anymore and He can’t love you any less. God’s love reaches to the heavens. His love endures forever.
