If God created the universe and the science which restricts it, then of course He can do anything, however He does things for a reason; you cannot expect Him to do something for no reason. God only does things when necessary. For example: You cannot walk on water just because you want to. However, God can sometimes do things which are impossible when they are necessary.

"With God, all things are possible " 
This is one of the most common statements that nearly everyone make. It comes up when people see the reality of human limitations in front of huge challenges. But how how true is that statement? 

Hundred percent cent true! God's word in Like 1:37 says it word verbatim and we know that the Bible is the ultimate truth. God is able to do all things by his omnipotent nature. If you reflect a moment about the fearful things he has done, you we will undoubtedly say all things are possible with Him. 

However, God is bound by his very nature to work according to his purposes for everything. And so, the fact that he can do something does not imply that He will do it. He was able to change the stone to become bread but didn't. He could have jumped down the boss of Jerusalem's temple but didn't, to even deny to suffer curse in the garden of Gethsemane but he didn't. All because of the purpose he needed to fulfill. 

Therefore, God is able to do all things but He is not bound by human curiosity to prove himself God, he is already God. He wants people to believe in Him even when they've not seen raw miracles done by Him before their eyes.
