If you're referring to the God I know, the answer is this.

God cannot fail.

amen, brother.
just remember that there are lots of things that we cannot understand, although it seems improbable to us that God cannot fail (when we think that if he succeded in making a rock He cannot lift, then in a sense, He's failed), God does/knows all and our feeble little minds cannot comprehend that nor do we have the language to express it in terms that we can understand.

More a theological discussion than a logical puzzle.

Consider this though. If you are referring to God as an omnipotent being then why would he even try? If he's omnipotent he would know the answer without even making the attempt.
