Confession 2.19 | ESV
We must give to God the glory of his patience and long-suffering towards us and his willingness to be reconciled.
Sentence against my evil deeds has not been executed speedily, Ecclesiastes 8:11(ESV) but you have given me time to repent and make my peace with you, Revelation 2:21(ESV) and call even a faithless son such as myself to return to you, and have promised to heal my faithlessness; and therefore, behold, I come to you, for you are the LORD my God. Jeremiah 3:22(ESV)
You have said it and have confirmed it with an oath, that you have no pleasure in the death of sinners like me, but rather desire that I should turn and live. Ezekiel 33:11(ESV) Therefore will I rend my heart, and not my garment, and return to the LORD my God; for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. Who knows whether he will not turn and relent, and leave a blessing behind him? Joel 2:13-14(ESV)
