Can god make a weight he himself cannot lift?

Are there self imposed limits to what God will and will not do?Are there limits that God has placed on Himself? And if so, does it or can it directly effect mankind? For example, does mans free will limit what God can and can not do, with God knowing He gave man free choice? Does this limit God?...
