Why do we question Gods authority?

We are Gods creation.

Genesis 2:7 "Then the LORD God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature."

God created us with His own hands. We are His creation, His art, His object, He owns us.

Romans 9:19-24 " 19You will say to me then, "Why does he still find fault? For who can resist his will?" But who are you, O man, to answer back to God? Will what is molded say to its molder, "Why have you made me like this?" Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same lump one vessel for honorable use and another for dishonorable use? What if God, desiring to show his wrath and to make known his power, has endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction,in order to make known the riches of his glory for vessels of mercy, which he has prepared beforehand for glory—even us whom he has called, not from the Jews only but also from the Gentiles?"

If we are Gods creation and we were made for Him, why do we question Him?

We queston him in the little things and in the big things. We question whether or not His word is right or wrong. We also question His existence.

When we read Gods word and see a law or a sin that does not make sense to us, why do we question it? Why do we challenge it? Why can we not just see it, believe it, and obey it.

Why are we so concerned about making ourselves happy? We worry too much about how to get around the rules, it's sad.

Just obey.

Creation should not question its creator or rule maker, how insulting.
