You don't do that passage justice. Paul is making the point that God is sovereign, owns all creation, and can do with it, or any portion of it, as he wishes. And there are times in scripture when he does just that - such as hardening Pharaohs heart so that God could show Pharaoh and the world the power and authority of God.
See the context
21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?
22 What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, >>>endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction<<<:
23 And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory
And compare these translations for clarity
Romans 9:22 (BBE) What if God, desiring to let his wrath and his power be seen, >>>for a long time put up with the vessels of wrath which were ready for destruction?<<<
Romans 9:22 (CJB) Now what if God, even though he was quite willing to demonstrate his anger and make known his power, >>patiently put up with people who deserved punishment and were ripe for destruction?<<<
Romans 9:22 (GNT) And the same is true of what God has done. He wanted to show his anger and to make his power known. >>>But he was very patient in enduring those who were the objects of his anger, who were doomed to destruction<<<.
Romans 9:22 (GW) If God wants to demonstrate his anger and reveal his power, he can do it. >>>But can't he be extremely patient with people who are objects of his anger because they are headed for destruction?<<<
These reveal the spirit of that passage
