11 Things God Cannot Do

Most people have heard the notion “my God can do ANYTHING!” and in a way, that is true, except there is one stipulation that we disregard or simply forget when we make that statement:

God can do anything in keeping with His character.

Since there are many things that do not coincide with the character of God, here are 11 things God cannot do:



1. God can’t get tired.

Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary.
Isaiah 40:28

2. God can’t take on a job he can’t handle.

Ah, Lord God! Behold, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for you.
Jeremiah 32:17

3. God can’t be unholy.

And one cried to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!”
Isaiah 6:3

For it is written “be holy for I am holy
1 Peter 1:16

4. God can’t be prejudiced.

In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality. But in every nation whoever fears him and works righteousness is accepted by him.
Acts 10:34-35

5. God can’t break a promise.

My covenant I will not break, nor alter the word that has gone out of my lips.
Psalm 89:34

6. God can’t remember sins he’s chosen to forget.

I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions for my own sake; and I will not remember your sins.
Isaiah 43:25

7. God can’t make a loser.

Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ.
—2 Corinthians 2:14

Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ
Philippians 3:8

8. God can’t abandon you.

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.
Deuteronomy 31:6

9. God can’t stop thinking about you.

How precious also are your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; when I awake, I am still with you.
—Psalm 139:17-18

10. God can’t stop loving you.

Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.
Jeremiah 31:3

11. God cannot deny Himself.

If we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot deny himself
—2 Timothy 2:13


Aren’t you glad to know that there’s some things that God cannot do?


Trust Jesus!
