God's Power Is Unlimited

Jer. 32:17-19

Recently I preached a couple of messages on can God. I spoke on some things that God can and does do. Today I would like to preach on four things that God cannot and will not do.

Who could think of how the power of God could be harnessed? There is no limit to His power. He has the power to create. To think that He took nothing and created this world with its beauty and splendor is mind boggling. To know how the human is made up of muscles, neurotransmitters, blood chemistry, flesh, bones and no wasted parts is almost unthinkable. To deny there is a God is utter foolish. Of course, the Psalmist David said in Psa. 53:1. “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.”

So with those thoughts planted firmly in your mind, I want to talk about four things that the Lord cannot and will not do. May the marvelous truths of these thoughts be written upon our hearts today and that the devil or sin in our lives not erase them from it.

For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.( Heb. 13:8 )Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

    1. His Sovereignty will never change. 

       A. He is still Lord of all even in the storms.
           1. "Never doubt in the storm what He promised in the calm." 

       B. He is still Lord of all even in sickness. 

       C. He is still Lord of all even in satanic attacks. 

    2. His Scriptures will not change.

      A. The Bible is unchanging in its promises. 

      B. The Bible is unchanging in its power. (Heb. 4:12-13

      C. The Bible is unchanging in its pronouncements. It still calls sin, SIN. 

         1. Adultery is sinful. 

         2. Addictions are still sin. 

         3. ABSTAINING from what is right is still sin 

         4. Abortion is still sin. 

    3. His Strength will not change. (Psa. 138:3)

II. THE LORD CANNOT AND WILL NOT FAIL. ((Deut. 31:6) Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

    1. His promises have never failed. (1 Kings 8:56) 

        A. The only failure involved with the promises of God is our failure to do what

             the Lord expects of us in order for Him to do His part. 

        B. Most of our failures are prayer failures. (James 4:2-3 )(Mt. 7:7-8)

    2. His power does not fail. (Pro. 21:1)

         A. He has the power to create, control, and complete. (Phil. 1:6)


(Psa. 103:12) As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

1. He will blot them out. (Acts 3:19) Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;

2. He will cast them in the depths of the sea. (Mic. 7:19)

3. He will forgive them. (Ex. 34:7)

4. He will send them as far as the east is from the west.

5. But He will not do these acts without you first asking Christ into your heart and  to forgive your sins.


1. Salvation is forever and ever. (John 3:16)

2. Salvation is finished. (yet on going)

3. Salvation is firm. (1 John 5:13)

4. Being saved is not a license to sin.


You might want to ask yourself whether you have a big God or a little God? A little girl listened attentively as her father read the family devotions. She seemed awed by her parents' talk of God's limitless power and mercy. "Daddy," she asked, placing her little hands on his knees, "how big is God." Her father thought for a moment and answered, "Honey, he is always just a little bigger than you need."

Isaac Rankin says that just outside his window is a large wire which carries a heavy current of electricity for light and power. It is carefully insulated at every pole and is out of common reach. "However," he says, "if I could lean out far enough to grasp it, death would be as swift as a lightning stroke. Yet the doves in my neighborhood suffer no harm when they perch on it. They fly from my windowsill, where I sometimes feed them, and preen in safety and contentment on the cables. The secret is that when they contact that wire, they touch nothing else. My danger would be that should I attempt to reach out and do so, the walls of my house would act as a ground, and the current would turn my body into a channel through which the electricity would flow in damaging power. Because they rest wholly upon the wire, they are unharmed. So God would have us seek our safety in complete surrender to His power and love. It is when we reach one hand to Him while still holding fast to some forbidden thing with the other that we are in danger."

"Yes God's Power is Limitless"  Yet there are some things that He has willed not to do
