  1. I feel that is why a zivug is compared to krias yom suf (Sota bais amud alef) because people don’t realize that it is the Ribono Shel Olam who is orchestrating everything, the zivug,rather it appears it is teva (nature) i.e., the shadchan or circumstances on how the couple met. We must see beyond the “ruach kadim”
    That is the Ribono Shel Olam’s mehalach, his miricles are cloaked in what appears to be teva , nature. See also Chinuch, mitzvah 132, why is there a mitzvah to bring fire on the mizbayach, if there is a heavenly fire there already? So to disguise this open miracle, He doesn’t have to show off. The chinuch calls it the “gadlus hanosain and shiflus hamikabail”. And yes, our avoda is to recognize that its all from him.
