Does a higher enthalpy indicate a higher stability?

Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but I think a higher enthalpy indicates less stability whereas a lower enthalpy indicates more stability.

Yeah, High enthalpy means that a substance is highly reactive since it has more energy.

High enthalpy indicates that more energy must have been put into a substance, therefore, making it more reactive. A more reactive substance would be relatively unstable therefore high enthalpy actually indicates low stability.
