It is my humble answer that "yes" we can walk in ways that please God and obey His Word. This must be done "through" the Holy Spirit and not of our own will power. Of course our wills must also bend to the Lord and His ways.
It is as if you are willing to do what is right but do not have the "power" to accomplish it. It is like desiring to turn on the light and even switching the lamb socket on but not having it plugged in. We need to be plugged into the power of the Spirit of God.
All true self-denial, discipleship, godliness and obedience comes through abiding with the power and life of Jesus Christ in us. God desires that we walk in ways that please Him and as you shared the Scripture we are to obey the Words of God and not just listen to them.
I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, - Ephesians 4:1
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. - Romans 12:1
For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light 9 (for the fruit of the Spirit[a] is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), 10 finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. - Ephesians 5:8-10
Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him. - 2 Corinthians 5:9
so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; - Colossians 1:10
Finally then, brethren, we request and exhort you in the Lord Jesus, that as you received from us instruction as to how you ought to walk and please God (just as you actually do walk), that you excel still more. - 1 Thessalonians 4:1
The words of Jesus our Lord are very clear in Matthew 7:
Build on the Rock
24 “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: 25 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.
26 “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and DOES NOT DO THEM, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: 27 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”
28 And so it was, when Jesus had ended these sayings, that the people were astonished at His teaching, 29 for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
