agat is the Verb and uisce is the Object, so it should be (VSO "agat uisce tá", correct? thx

No, tá is the present tense of the verb to be, uisce is the subject. Agat is the preposition ag merged with the pronoun tú.

There's no verb to have in Irish, you have to say things in a different way... Imagine you're talking like some wizard - "A great destiny is upon you!"="You have a great destiny".
