Most Stable Form

How can we tell if something is in its most stable form? I assumed diatomic molecules like O2, H2, and N2 were in their most stable state but in Lyndon's worksheet for week 4, Q1.A we plugged in bond enthalpies. This must've been explained at the time but I forgot. Does it depend on the reaction?
