"A too much powerful God leads to inconsistency. "

All-powerful does not mean unlawful.

so that everything could function."

What if reality does not always obey the laws of logic?  What if reality is 
sometimes inconsistent?

This is a confusion of levels. Logic is rules about truth preservation in 
declarative sentences.  Not 'obeying the laws of logic' just means declaring 
inconsistent sentences.  We try to avoid this because such utterances would 
have no determinate meaning.  So a *descriptions* of reality may be 
inconsistent (and therefore useless) but reality is just whatever it is.  It 
can't be inconsistent because it's not assertions.
