God’s silence is not the same as our silence 

When we do something wrong, and someone knows about it, but says nothing, we conclude that we have gotten away with that deed, which might be the case with man. 

However, when we do something wrong, and God does not punish us for it right away, we should not conclude that He has ignored it, for He said to the wicked, 

“These things you have done, and I kept silent; you thought that I was altogether like you; but I will rebuke you, and set them in order before your eyes” (Psa 50:21). 

Do not misinterpret God’s silence as either endorsement or that He did not see it. If we do not repent, He will take care of the matter, and that is not something that we want to happen.
