In Isaiah chapter 45 verses 6, 7 and 8, the Lord, as the sole Creator,  declares His sovereignty and lordship over all of creation.

In verse 6, the Lord states;

I am the LORD, and there is no other.

And then in verse 7, the Lord declares that it is He who sets all the conditions of light and darkness, well-being and calamity;

I form light and create darkness; I make well-being and create calamity; I am the LORD, who does all these things.

Having established His authority over the created order, Isaiah chapter 45 verse 9 records this;

“Woe to those who quarrel with their Maker,   those who are nothing but potsherds among the potsherds on the ground.

Does the clay say to the potter, ‘What are you making?’ Does your work say, ‘The potter has no hands’?

 This verse uses the metaphor of a pot contending with the person who is making him by challenging the methods and intentions of the potter. This metaphor exposes the absurdity of those who dispute the Lord's work on them.

As our sovereign God, the purposes for which He creates us are entirely within His own perogative and as such, it is inappropriate for a created being to content with his maker over what his designation or utility is.
