Rewards of Obedience
“If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land.” (Isaiah 1:19) I think this reward applies to more than temporal prosperity; we can have all that is good in our lives when we follow the laws of the Lord.

The Lord will provide a way for us if we are obedient to His laws. “…I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save He shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them.” (1 Nephi 3:7)
“Behold, the Lord requireth the heart and a willing mind; and the willing and obedient shall eat the good of the land of Zion in these last days.” (Doctrine and Covenants 64:34)

“And again I say unto you, if ye observe to do whatsoever I command you, I, the Lord, will turn away all wrath and indignation from you, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against you.” (Doctrine and Covenants 98:22)
“And when we obtain any blessing from God; it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated.” (D&C 130:21)
“That through his atonement, and by obedience to the principles of the gospel, mankind might be saved.” (Doctrine and Covenants 138:4)
