If your provider has a looking glass then that is a good start to see if 
they have the route in their routing tables. 
is a good start for searching for a looking glass on their website.

Have you checked to see if you're actually recieving the route? You may 
be getting the route but not installing it into your routing table for 
some reason (eg invalid next hop or a router from another provider is 
being prefered). Do you have prefix lists inbound from your provider 
that could be blocking a route?

show ip route X.X.X.X
show ip bgp route X.X.X.X

will give different information.

If you've covered the above and not found the answer then try talking to 
your provider.
