As Difficult as Splitting the Sea

How can we understand the words of our Sages (Sotah 2a, Pesachim 118a) that matchmaking and creating livelihoods for people are as difficult for Hakadosh Baruch Hu as the splitting of the sea?  Difficult for Hashem? There is no such concept!

However, we can explain that just as the Red Sea did not split until Nachson jumped in, thus requiring human participation and involvement, so too, earning a parnassah and making shidduchim requires people to get involved and make the effort on their own. The “difficult” part for Hashem is waiting for people to do their part! ~ R’ Yisroel Halevi Belsky zt”l
