Psalms 46

1 God is our refuge and strength, a tested help in times of trouble.
2 And so we need not fear even if the world blows up and the mountains crumble into the sea.
3 Let the oceans roar and foam; let the mountains tremble!
4 There is a river of joy flowing through the city of our God--the sacred home of the God above all gods.
5 God himself is living in that city; therefore it stands unmoved despite the turmoil everywhere. He will not delay his help.
6 The nations rant and rave in anger--but when God speaks, the earth melts in submission and kingdoms totter into ruin.
7 The Commander of the armies of heaven is here among us. He, the God of Jacob, has come to rescue us.
8 Come, see the glorious things that our God does, how he brings ruin upon the world
9 and causes wars to end throughout the earth, breaking and burning every weapon.
10 "Stand silent! Know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation in the world!"
11 The Commander of the heavenly armies is here among us! He, the God of Jacob, has come to rescue us!

God is our very present help in trouble that means that though He is our refuge and strength, we will still have troubles. When God was leading the Israelites out of Egypt through Moses, He only guaranteed them of getting to their destination but He never told them there won't be challenges on the way. Challenges makes life interesting but the important thing is that we should not fear no matter what happens. What are some of the terrible things that could happen.
When we are in trouble, the best thing to do is to be still and know He is God. He will certainly deliver because He's our only present help in trouble.

when we are in trouble, the best thing to do is to be still and be prayerful.

You have to balance that out with other passages. The New Testament doesn't promise our lives as Christians to be without trouble. What did Paul experience?

(2 Corinthians 11:24-28 NIV) Five times I received from the Jews the forty lashes minus one. {25} Three times I was beaten with rods, once I was stoned, three times I was shipwrecked, I spent a night and a day in the open sea, {26} I have been constantly on the move. I have been in danger from rivers, in danger from bandits, in danger from my own countrymen, in danger from Gentiles; in danger in the city, in danger in the country, in danger at sea; and in danger from false brothers. {27} I have labored and toiled and have often gone without sleep; I have known hunger and thirst and have often gone without food; I have been cold and naked. {28} Besides everything else, I face daily the pressure of my concern for all the churches.
