3 things GOD can’t do…

i have a question for you, is there anything GOD can’t do?  and the answer is, yes, there are three things GOD cannot do.

1.  GOD cannot do wrong.  the bible says HE is just.  HE always does what is right.  HE always does what is fair.  deuteronomy 32.4 (nlt), HE is the rock; HIS deeds are perfect. everything HE does is just and fair. He is a faithful GOD who does no wrong; how just and upright HE is!
2.  GOD cannot lie.  HE always tells the truth.  the bible says HE is holy.  hebrews 6.18 (nlt), so GOD has given both HIS promise and HIS oath. these two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for GOD to lie. therefore, we who have fled to HIM for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us.
3.  GOD cannot break a promise.  what HE says, HE does.  the bible calls that HIS faithfulness.  numbers 23.19 (nirv), GOD isn’t a mere man. HE can’t lie.  HE isn’t a human being.  HE doesn’t change HIS mind.  HE speaks, and then HE acts. HE makes a promise, and then HE keeps it.

please note that if you learn to grasp these three characteristics of GOD –  GOD is just, holy, and faithful –  you’ll have no problem trusting GOD even when you don’t understand what you’re going through, even when things seem difficult.

just a thought from the front porch…

Great reminder - It's eacy to get our perspectives mixed up! My blog post for today is It's Easy, just backwards about how being like Christ is pretty much opposit of our natural inclination

Have a great day!
