God Can Do Whatever He Wants

For the most part, that’s true. He can’t sin. He can’t microwave a burrito so hot that even He can’t eat it (can He?). But for arguments sake, and the sake of this post, God can do whatever He wants.

My wife is on birth control (don’t start with that “all birth control is an abortion” junk, because it really just makes you look like you haven’t put any real thought or research on the matter, which you probably haven’t anyway). It doesn’t matter though, because if it’s time for Lydia and I to have another child, she’s going to get pregnant. Just ask Mary. She was a virgin. Or ask that couple you know who has one kid a lot younger than the rest. I bet there’s a funny story behind that.

Not just birth, but death too. It doesn’t matter how healthy or safety conscious you are, you can die before the end of this sentence if God wants you to. If God wants you eaten by an alligator, it doesn’t matter if you live in Alaska.

If you are the world’s richest investment banker, God can make you poor. If you are the slowest driver, God can make you win the Indianapolis 500. If your dad won’t come back until the Angels win the pennant, He’ll not only send Christopher Lloyd as an angel to cheat for the team, He’ll also make Danny Glover adopt you at the end of the movie because your dad is never coming back.

God can do whatever He wants. You don’t get to decide what he does, I don’t get to decide what He does. And there’s nothing anyone can do to stop Him.

There’s a reason they call Him the Alpha and the Omega. There’s a reason He’s called almighty. He’s God and there’s nothing you can do to stop Him from imposing His will over yours.

You want to stay single your whole life? Guess who just fell in love. You want to be a plumber? You’re on your way to Ethioptha. You don’t like a certain co worker? Now you share a cubicle.

God is infinite. That means a lot of things. But it also means there’s nothing you can do to stop God from doing what He wants to do.


Josiah Douglas isn't a super smart guy (even though he has a bachelor's degree), and he doesn't know a lot about God (his degree is in theology), but he does think a lot and sometimes he writes those things down so that you can read them too!
