Scientists will tell you that where there is water there is life. This is why NASA spends so much money searching for water on other planets. They know that if they find water, or evidence of past water, then there's a pretty good chance there is, or was, some form of life there. Spiritual water is very similar to physical water. Where there is spiritual water, there is life!
Isaac spent some time in the desert digging Wells looking for water. He was opposed, accused, and faced opposition. But he just picked up his shovel and went and dig another well, looking for water.
Maybe you're in a spiritual drought and you need spiritual water in your life. So when is it time to dig again? When is it time to pick up your shovel, roll up your sleeves, and dig another well?
It's not a one time thing. Sometimes the well runs dry or has to be relocated. It's the same in your spiritual life. Digging wells, looking for spiritual water, is an ongoing process.
Maybe it's time for you to dig a well today.

17And Isaac departed thence, and pitched his tent in the valley of Gerar, and dwelt there. 18And Isaac digged again the wells of water, which they had digged in the days of Abraham his father; for the philistines had stopped them after the death of Abraham: and he called their names after the names by which his father had called them. 19And Isaac's servants digged in the valley, and found there a well of springing water. 20And the herdmen of Gerar did strive with Isaac's herdmen, saying, The water is ours: and he called the name of the well Esek; because they strove with him. 21And they digged another well, and strove for that also:and he called the name of it Sitnah. 22And he removed from thence, and digged another well; and for that they strove not: and he called the name of it Rehoboth; and he said, For now the LORD hath made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land. 23And he went up from thence to Beer-sheba. 24And the LORD appeared unto him the same night, and said, I am the God of Abraham thy father: fear not, for I am with thee, and will bless thee, and multiply thy seed for my servant Abraham's sake. 25And he builded an altar there, and called upon the name of the LORD and pitched his tent there: and there Isaac's servants digged a well.
