1) Knowing the secrets of God.
Closeness to God means He reveals his heart to you. He shows you secrets others are not privy to. "The secret of the Lord is with those who fear him, And he will show them his covenant." ( Psalms 25:14).
2) The blessings of God.
When you walk closely with God each day, he blesses you abundantly. His blessings are always upon you and you do not have to do anything to deserve them. God has promised that if you obey him, blessings will overtake you. For example in the book of Deuteronomy 28: 1-6 "If you fully obey the lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. All these blessings will come upon you and accompany you if you obey the lord your God: you will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country. The fruit of your womb will be blessed, and the crops of your land and the young of your livestock- the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks. Your basket and your kneading trough will be blessed. You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.
God says in the book of job 22:21 that "Submit to God and be at peace with him; in this way, prosperity will come to you."
