'PLEASE HIM (2)'

"But without faith, it is impossible to please God, for he that must come to God must believe that He is; and that He is a rewarder of them who diligently seek Him" - Hebrews 11:6
.
The overall summary of how to please God is to have faith in Him. It takes faith to believe that He exist, to please and walk with Him. 
.
The faith required to walk with God is different from the faith required to receive miracles. It was never read of those who received miracles during Jesus' time to have followed Him, they got what they want through faith and left.
.
The faith required to walk with God and please Him requires consistent trusting and obedience to His will. Abraham trusted and obeyed in that he offered his only son for sacrifice (Gen. 22:1-2). 
.
Noah by faith moved to obey God even when he hadn't seen rain fall before (Gen. 6:9-22). He went and built the Ark as instructed in spite of the mockery. 
.
Do you have faith capable of walking with God and to please Him? The qualities of this faith are: believe that He is, diligently seek Him, trust and obey Him. Without these, no man can please God. 
.
Without faith in Him, you cannot obey any of His commandments such as loving Him, abstinence from fornication, giving thanks, well doing, worshiping Him in spirit and in truth amongst others.
.
Don't develop faith to get miracles, build up your faith to work and walk with Him everyday of your life.
