Since God is sovereign, the issue becomes what right do we have to question him. Paul understood the importance of following God’s leadership without question. The analogy is why would a created being question its creator.

What if a Ford Mustang simply stopped running, or worse, drove the opposite direction from which it was steered. In the same way, we who are created must humbly follow the path of our Creator. Whether Jew or Gentile, It is God’s choice to grant salvation to whom he chooses. 

Because of our view is limited, God simply asks us to trust him and follow him. As we do, often his plans and his path will become clear. But, even if they don’t, he is the creator, author, implementer, and master of our destiny. His credentials alone should be sufficient to command our trust. 

God Bless You 

One of you will say to me: “Then why does God still blame us? For who is able to resist his will?”

But who are you, a human being, to talk back to God? “Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, ‘Why did you make me like this?’”

Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some pottery for special purposes and some for common use?

What if God, although choosing to show his wrath and make his power known, bore with great patience the objects of his wrath—prepared for destruction?

What if he did this to make the riches of his glory known to the objects of his mercy, whom he prepared in advance for glory—

even us, whom he also called, not only from the Jews but also from the Gentiles?
