Why is God so pleased with faith?

I have my own ideas but I wanted to ask you all, to maybe get a true and different perspective on this

But without faith it is impossible to please God. For he that cometh to God, must believe that he is, and is a rewarder to them that seek him. Hb 11:6

The first answer to the question is that this is something we know by revelation. Unless I am missing the mark, it is not a subject otherwise attainable by reason.

“therefore is my people led away captive, because they have not knowledge … therefore hath hell enlarged her mouth without any bounds” (Is 5:13-14).

But he that shall persevere to the end, he shall be saved. (Mt 24:13)

Like any parent who is pleased when a child does well, God can be pleased with us. He doesn't need our faith, but He knows that it is for our benefit, so that pleases Him.

We all need to pray daily, whether we feel like it or not.

Sometimes it may seem that God is not listening, although He always hears us.

We need faith that He loves us infinitely and always desires what is best for us.
