Pleasing our Creator is what He created us for.
Revelation 4:11: Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

Colossians 1:10: That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; 3:20 Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.
It pleases God when children obey their parents and especially when His children obey Him.
1 Thessalonians 2:4: But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts. 4:1 Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more.
When we please Him we abound more and more.

When we please Him and obey His commands, he answers our prayers and blesses us.
