Things God Cannot Do
Though the Lord is almighty and everything is possible with Him. Yet, there are some certain things that He cannot do. Let us see what the Lord is unable to do.
The Bible tells us that God is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. He is a mighty God and we believe that with him everything is possible. We cannot understand Him completely by our limited brain.
When we look at nature, we get surprised by seeing the wonderful works of God. He created everything for us so that we can live on this earth.
Though He is great and all of His deeds are extremely wonderful, still there is something which He cannot do. The things which God cannot do are contrary to His nature.
Now let us see the things that are impossible with God.
God Cannot Be Change
“For I am the Lord, I do not change; Therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob.” (Malachi 3:6)
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8)
Everything changes in this world and people say that change is the only thing that leads the world. Even when the situations change we also change our minds. As we do not know what the future holds. But God knows the future that is why He keeps His promises.
Throughout the Old Testament, we can notice how the Lord fulfilled all the promises that He made.
All the children of God experienced God’s faithfulness in their lives. God told Abraham that He would make him the father of a great nation and he did so by making Israel from Abraham’s seed.
Based on the circumstances in our lives, we should not judge God. In the midst of life’s storm, we can focus on God’s unchanging character.
A man of God will always put his faith in an unchanging God, instead of fearing the circumstances.
God Cannot Lie
God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? (Numbers 23:19)
A man can lie and change his mind but the Lord will never lie. Man can lie due to his sinful nature but God can’t lie because He is a Holy God which makes Him keep His words. When God says He will do, then it is certain that He will accomplish it.
God asked Noah to build an ark as it would be raining for forty days and nights. when the ark was completely prepared the rain came down and devastated the earth.
God called Abraham from his native land to make him a father of the nation Israel. When Abraham was a hundred years old, God blessed the womb of Sarah and Isaac was born. As the Lord promised Abraham that from his seed the entire houses on the earth will be blessed.
God spoke to Joseph through a dream that he shall be exalted and his entire family would surrender themselves before him and it happened so.
God foretold through prophets about the savior who would sacrifice His life for the whole world. By the birth of Jesus, the Lord fulfilled His promise.
A child of God should remember that God cannot lie. He wants everyone to trust in Him, instead of doubting the beautiful promises that He made with mankind.
God Cannot Remember The Sins That He Has Forgiven
“I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; And I will not remember your sins.”. (Isaiah 43:25)
When a sinner submits his life before God and confesses his sins, He remembers his sins no more. He is such a God who forgets our sins no matter how big they are.
Israel was God’s firstborn and He loved them even though they have betrayed Him, but all the times He forgave their sins and forgot. It is His nature not to remember the sins that He has forgiven.
Human nature is different from the Lord. We remember people who do wrong to us and seek opportunities to take revenge. Even sometimes we forgive our enemies but cannot forget the works. But God cannot remember our sins once He washed them away.
When we completely surrender our lives before God and ask His forgiveness, He forgives us and makes us righteous. We become a new creation. All of our past evil deeds get removed from us and the Lord guides us in a new way that leads us to heaven.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)
On the other hand, the devil never forgets our sins and he constantly reminds us of our pasts and tempts us to walk in the same path to fall into his trap.
God Cannot Forget His People
“Can a woman forget her nursing child, And not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, Yet I will not forget you.” (Isaiah 49:15)
God can forget all our sins but He cannot forget us. The moment His children repent and ask for forgiveness he accepts them.
In the world today, many mothers leave their own children whom they gave birth to. It is so painful to abandon her own blood and flesh.
But the Lord is not like a man, a mother can abandon her child but the Lord will never leave his children orphaned.
Sometimes we may feel God is not with us, But Jesus said till the end of this world He will be with us.
The Lord called Abraham and guided him throughout his life and blessed him wherever He led him. Abraham did not know where to go and what to do while the Lord called him from his homeland. God never forsake him in his life.
God called Moses and appointed him as a leader of Israel. When the children of Israel cried out to the Lord as the suffering was severe, it was accepted in the sight of the Lord.
He remembered the promise that He made with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. To bring Israel out from Egypt, the Lord did many miracles in the land of Egypt.
The children of God need to pay heed to the promises that the Lord made. Nothing can separate us from the love of God. He remembers us when we submit ourselves before Him.
