Marked for Greatness
By Victoria Osteen - Jan 29, 2016

Some people say this generation has it harder than any generation before. They say there is too much evil out there, too many things going against them. They say this generation will never make it. Well, I think about Moses in scripture. He was never intended to make it. Moses wasn't even supposed to be alive! He was supposed to be killed as soon as he was born, and God miraculously spared his life.

Later on, he tried to do something good and it turned out badly, and he found himself wandering in the wilderness for 40 years. Some people think they've wasted their lives. They think, "I haven't done anything yet." Moses probably thought the same thing. He was out in the wilderness, but he knew that he had the anointing of God on his life. He knew he was marked for greatness.

Moses is the one who went to Pharaoh and talked him into letting the people of Israel go. He helped them escape the bondages of slavery. They headed out and found themselves against a massive body of water. Behind them was the enemy army coming to take them back into captivity, and they were severely outnumbered! The Israelites were on foot with their families, the children and the elderly, and behind them was the enemy army full of young men with chariots and horses. Moses is the one who looked at that obstacle of water, raised his rod in faith, and watched the wind split that water in two so the people could move forward.

If that were in the news today, most people would say, "That's crazy! That's sensationalism! That couldn't have happened." I say, "No, that's our supernatural God!" Moses wasn't even supposed to make it to three years old. Then he wasted 40 years in the wilderness and still became one of the greatest fathers of our faith! If he can make it, you can make it, and this generation can make it! Moses was marked for greatness, and you are marked for greatness!"

"For you are a people holy to the LORD your God. The LORD your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession." (Deuteronomy 7:6, NIV)
