Many verses state that God can do anything (Genesis 18:14, Job 42:1-2, Jeremiah 32:17, Jeremiah 32:27, Matthew 19:26, Mark 10:27, Luke 1:37, Luke 18:27, and Revelation 19:6). However, the verses above say that there are certain things that God cannot do.
God is powerful enough to do anything. However, He will never do something against His character (like lie).
Judges 1:19 states that Judah could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley; God had not enabled him to do this yet. Regarding Mark 6:5, of course Jesus was powerful enough to do more miracles in this city, but “without faith it is impossible to please [God]” (Hebrews 11:6), and so He “could not” do many miracles there. It’s like when asked to cheat on a report, a man responds, “I can’t do that.” Of course he has the power to do it, but he will not—it is against his character. The same goes for God: He is powerful enough to do anything, but he will not violate His character.
