    Let's look again at the "tares and wheat" parable and its interpretation:

    Ephesians 3:20, “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us”

    The Bible describes God as omnipotent, all powerful, able even to create all things from nothing (Hebrews 11:3).
