God's answers

God answers just not the way we think
I was going along with my study about Abraham and I'm in Genesis 23. In Genesis 23 Sarah dies at 127 years old. Abraham buys an expensive burial spot where he, and his sons end up after their death. The three promises God made to Abraham were:
1. Eternal seed
2. Eternal kingdom
3. Land flowing with milk and honey
were Gods' promises answered? Yes but....come to find out the only land Abraham rightfully ever owned was the place where Sarah was buried! He never saw God's answers to the promises he made him? No, and he didn't understand how God would fulfill the promises. Was he suppose to? No he was suppose to have faith that God would do what he said he'd do. The bible talks about Abraham's faith in Hebrews 11. Which brings us to us, do we always see how God uses us? No, sometimes it doesn't look like we are a part of the puzzle or that God answers our prayer but Isaih 55 says, God's thoughts and ways are higher than ours. As just a piece of the puzzle we can't see what the entire thing together looks like but God is using us for his purpose if we let him.
