There are some things God cannot do because they are inconsistent with His character. Whatever God does in the exercise of His power is consistent with who He is as a Person. Here are a few examples from Scripture of things God cannot do (emphasis are mine):

1. Titus 1:2 “…in hope of eternal life which God, who cannot lie, promised before time began,

2. II Timothy 2:13 If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself.

3. James 1:13 “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.”

The Bible says God is omnipotent, but His omnipotence is guided by His nature. And it is, therefore, impossible for God to lie, impossible for God to deny Himself, and impossible for God to be tempted by evil or tempt anyone else with evil. He cannot do those things which violate who He is.
The word omni means “everything or all.” And the word “science” is an old way that people use to refer to “that which is known.”

To say God is omniscient means He knows everything that is known. He possesses total, boundless, absolute, universal, unlimited, comprehensive knowledge. It’s one of the most exciting aspects of studying the attributes of God, because most of us would love to have someone—anyone—who really knows us, knows all about us, knows us fully and understands us completely, yet accepts us unconditionally.

We have such a Person!
It is God’s nature to be everywhere present, to be with you always just as He is with your friends, family, and the millions around the world, always. He manifests His presence in different ways at different times, we may feel His presence more in certain times than others, but always God is with you and me—it’s His nature and His promise: “I will never leave you not forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5).
Immutability is a term that theologians use to describe God’s unchanging nature. While we as humans grow and change and mature, God remains the same, always and forever. He is eternally unchanging.

When we say God is immutable, we mean He cannot mutate. What He has always been He will forever be. He will always be consistent with Himself. The idea of a growing and developing God is foreign to Scripture. He is the greatest influence and force in the universe and cannot be touched by any other force or factor that would change Him in any way.
Your questions on GOD:
  • Is there anything God cannot do?
  • What does it mean God is omniscient?
  • Will God really always be with me?
  • What does it mean God is immutable?
