How to Deal with Recovery Mode Won’t Load the Internal drive

I enabled FileVault with my Mac internal drive a week ago but it shut down when I disabled it. Now I can't load the drive in the Recovery Mode and I can't reinstall my macOS, and I tried First Aid in the Disk Utility or reset NVRAM but all failed. Please help me!
