Isaiah 43:13

"Yes, and from ancient days I am he. No one can deliver out of my hand. When I act, who can reverse it?"

This is true power, that whenever you act it will not be stopped or undone.  God is the Almighty creator of all that is seen and unseen.  No one can destroy what he has created.  We know this from Chemistry and thermodynamics, that mass/energy can neither be created nor destroyed.  All there is in the world is all there will ever be.  Can anyone undo what God did?

Divine omnipotence is not the ability to do anything, as commonly misconceived, but the divine quality that when one acts, it will be accomplished.  Whatever God does he accomplishes.  Whatever he starts, he will finish.  When He acts, who can reverse it?  The Chief priests and elder scribes thought to end the life of Jesus by handing him over to crucifixion.  They thought they had power, but God reversed Christ's death. The Holy One lives and will never see decay.  None can hope to reverse his resurrection for he has shown that not even death could hold him.

Praise be to God that the same Spirit who raised Christ from the dead lives in us who believe in what God has done in order that we too might be raised to eternal life!  Because God has decreed that we be delivered from our sins, who can reverse it?  Thankfully, no one at all, Hallelujah!
