This verse is one of my favorites, as it reminds me that whatever burdens and abilities the Lord has given us (they are “gifts” to be used!) are not there by accident or coincidence. Not only that, we have been particularly equipped by the Lord to carry out the purposes He has planned for us (see Ephesians 2:10), and we must remember that such divine decrees are “irrecovable”.
What does “irrevocable” mean, you wonder? I am glad that you asked! According to Merriam-Webster, here is what the word means:
▫️Not possible to revoke
Therefore, it’s always best that we cooperate with the plans and purposes of the Lord — after all, they are not going anywhere! 🙂
